Kinesis Haigh Hall Super Cross

Kinesis Haigh Hall Super Cross

A weekend of ‘cross on a woodland course in the North West. Organised by former national champion Roy Hunt and a wonderful couple of days’ racing.

Photos here from day 2, when the course started to bed in after a slightly mulchier first day’s racing in the North Western league.

It just wouldn’t be a classic race without Nick Craig (Scott), who won the Vet 40 race then went on to finish 4th in the senior race starting 15 minutes later.
