If he’s competing in Spain, there’s not much point in going to Wales. He’ll have used up all of his nominated points-scoring events in Spain, so he won’t get anything out of competing in Wales.

They’re going back to Gwydyr Forest, which hasn’t been used since the 1960s, and they’re reviving the full Clocaenog, Penmachno, Gartheniog and Dyfi stages, which haven’t been used in their entirety (or together) since the Group B years. There’s no Rheola or Kielder stages to complete the set of disused stages, but it’s going to be tough enough as is.
