Canada’s best snowmobile, snow bike and UTV racers roll into Lindsay, Ontario to compete at the “FXR Kawartha Cup” Snowcross event at the Lindsay Exhibition Feb. 5 and 6.

CSRA Snowcross officials have been working with Kawartha Public Health and the latest Provincial guidelines to create a fun, and safe outdoor event for participants and spectators.
