The second edition of the 2017 Cycosports Jungle Cross series saw some tweaks to the race organisation but the end result was oh so familiar as Junaidi bin Hashim (Team Awano Treknology) staged another superb performance to bag the Men’s Open MTB title yesterday.
A glorious morning greeted Singapore’s off-road specialists as they made their way to Turf City and the Centaurs Sports Park that is home to Jungle Cross. On arrival they were greeted with a modified set-up, which saw the start/finish line moved to run parallel with the permanent marquees that stand between the playing field section of the course and the Pit, the small but densely wooded ravine that gives Jungle Cross its name.
The small modification didn’t change much for the competitors, but on what was a sweltering morning, it enhanced the experience for the spectators as it gave the big crowd of family and friends a wider view of the action without having to step out of the shelter.
