Good old Rob ‘Box’ Cooksley has done it again. He wins round 2 in Kielder.

We’ve been promised a full report on this, but here is the info that we have so far from Round 2 of the 661 Gravity Enduro Series from Kielder Forest:

Midges, impeccable timing, surprise sunshine for race day and more bloody midges!

The Old Skool are still leading the bunch overall, but only just. Looks like Crawford had a problem on one stage but still manged third.

Podiums were a good mix of 5 and 6 inch bikes, Semi slicks and knobblies, dropper posts and no dropper posts, coil and air shocks.

Box takes the overall win despite knocking himself out in practice.
