Hamsterly Enduro Cancelled
Under instructions from the forestry commission Dirt Bike Action have been told to postpone the Hamsterley time card enduro event scheduled for the 1st December. The forestry are worried we might damage sensitive mountain bike trails that we would have crossed now the weather has turned. The annoying thing is D.B.A. could have run it last weekend on our original date but it clashed with the super enduro at Liverpool. Thank you to all the riders who entered by the time you read this you will have been fully refunded. We have been told we can have a summer date for Hamsterley 2014 so all the work that has been put in will not be wasted. Our last event of the year is at Westwood on December 27th.
Regards John Kerwin

The rock oil Helmsley enduro weekend was a great success with over 120 riders competing on Sunday , and 50 on Saturday despite the overnight storm conditions that dumped inches of rain over Helmsley the course stood up well, especially the stubble field despite some doubts from other quarters. Each of the days started bang on time and ran like clockwork, no parts of the course had to be altered or cut out.
Dirtbike action raised the bar in the north of England championship, with two contrasting special tests, the stubble test was opposite the excellent parking and provided the support crews with great viewing and the second was a fast flowing xc test of around 5 to 6 minutes duration with is longer than some hare and hound laps, championship riders got in 9 tests during the event and a brisk out check only Joe chambers made the tightest time , Luke lusher suffered a kill switch problem on that check and missed the time by 20 seconds, Gavin houson was enjoying himself but was latter gutted to retire with a puncture .even the sportsmen and 050 classes got in 5 tests. My apologies for the delayed results our tech lady is on a course in London full results will be at the end of the week the vinduro results are posted.
This is the smallest of the Helmsley time card enduro events with a 20 km lap but once the shooting season finishes we get the full use of the estate. The 15th/16th March 2014 event will be over 30 km using the long wide flowing grass trails that run to the bottom of the estate returning up the dry limestone stream bed. The 3rd/4thmay 2014 event has a 55 km lap and use all the best feature that duncombe park has to offer we drop a lot of the going used in this event as the route drops down towards Helmsley crossing the road to returning via Ash dale .
Big thanks to the 3 landowners that made this event possible and to everyone that helped, and of course to the riders that supported the event, especially the ones that entered early this gave us the extra incentive put on the second test.
STOP PRESS - PROPOSED A NEW 2 DAY NEEC ENDURO FOR 2014!
A NEW PROPOSAL FOR 2014, ISLE OF MAN TWO DAY ENDURO
NEEC are considering the possibility of adding two new rounds to their highly successful Enduro Championship for 2014.
The two day event would be held on the Isle of Man on August 2 & 3rd 2014.
The Isle of Man 2-day Enduro, hosted by the SMCC, would provide some of the most rewarding riding and breathtaking scenery for competitors of all abilities.
There would be 2 x 50 mile multi-lap routes providing spectacular riding and scenery throughout the North and South of this beautiful island over two full days of racing, with special tests to suit every rider from Expert to Sportsman.
The SMCC have worked hard to secure new terrain - some of it exclusive to this event. A warm welcome would be made available to all competitors and spectators alike, with camping facilities, entertainment and catering provided.
No excuses! There is plenty of time to organise time off work. We hope to announce further details of discounted travel and accommodation offers - more details will be released in the New Year.
If you would like to register your interest in the event and ensure further updates, please email email@example.com or call her on 07624 494049.
