Richard Rowe: The guys are nipping at my heels

The world’s largest jet ski race series returns to Cardiff Bay, on 28-29 August, and the man to keep an eye on in the 250 class is Richard Rowe.

The Welshman has won every round this year but there’s nothing quite like putting on a killer performance on home soil.

The Bay is unique, fast paced and surprisingly tricky to navigate around, that even the very top riders can get caught out at points, so Rowe understands that he’ll need to be on top form if he’s to continue his win streak.

“The guys are nipping at my heels,” said Rowe.

“A good result would be another 3 wins in Cardiff and the pressure is on to perform well in front of a home crowd. I had a lot of support last year with friends and manage to get the win. It was was an experience I will always remember.”

Also in action this weekend, Rowe’s son Aaran who currently leads the Rookie Sprint Series. The prodigy currently leads in the Rookie table and is set to smash it up again in Wales.

Rowe continued: “Aaran has done well this year. I'm so proud of what he's doing. He's training hard and taking on board all the advice by others.”
