Fans disappointed by the cancellation of the Welsh Road Race on August 4 and 5 are promised a warm welcome to Wales and a cracking weekend of biking fun in the company of John McGuinness at LlanBikeFest 2018 –  the Llangollen Motorcycle Festival.

Back by popular demand for a second year, legendary 23-times Isle of Man TT winner  John McGuinness said: “I will definitely be at LlanBikeFest in August,” he said. “It’s a weekend of fun and a great family affair.” Watch full video interview on YouTube.

LlanBikeFest director John Hutchinson said: “We are sorry the Welsh Road Race has been cancelled, even though it was scheduled for the same weekend as our event, apparently because of dates available from the MoD. It would be great to see road racing in Wales and we know many people will be disappointed. We hope it will be back on in 2019, with dates different from ours.

“LlanBikeFest is now in its fourth year and getting bigger and better every time. It’s a true festival, celebrating everything we love about bikes and biking, set among some of Britain’s most fabulous biking roads. Above all, LlanBikeFest is about having fun in a super-friendly atmosphere, with everyone welcome.”
