Hatcher and Kennaugh win season opener

Conditions were fair on the Wildlife Park course for the opening event of the road racing season and the first six teams over the line finished in under the hour.

Kennaugh and Hatcher recorded a time of 56:08.

The pairing of Rob Dooley and Marty Warren were second, one minute and ten seconds behind the winners, with Chris Nicholson and Andrew Cook a further minute-and-a-half back in third.

The first juniors over the line were Jonathan Cregeen and Joe Kelly, whilst the first juveniles were George Doyle and Alex Haddock.

Julie Lyness and Jo Hawkins were the fastest ladies team.
