The event will run on the 2nd and 3rd of July 2016.
Based in the North Yorkshire village of Goathland it will be an enjoyable 250 miles of forest tracks, moorland trails, tricky twisty bits in the woods and quiet country roads through beautiful countryside.
The event is really a marked trail ride with a couple of special tests to sort out the winners.
Its an ideal event to do if you have never ridden an offroad event before.
There'll be the usual free camping, free food on Saturday night and three pubs within walking distance.
The event is always a great ride so get this weekend booked and complete your online entry.
Entries are be available on the calendar page on this site.
We're hoping for access to new forests and are working hard for a great weekend so come and join us in July.

Remember if you want to ride with your mates you must enter a team or teams and each member of the 3 man team must enter the team name online in their entry.
ie if there are 5 riders wanting to ride together 3 riders would for instance put Team Dipstick 1 and the other 2 would enter Team Dipstick 2, the last two riders results wouldn't count towards the team awards as each team must have 3 riders, but they would get to ride with the other 3.
In other words I need an electronic record of who wants to ride with who.
Team entries are free.
Round 2 of the NE-XC 17th April Masham
The results are on the calender page.
Round 1 of the NE-XC 27th March 2016
The results are now on the calendar page.
The first round of the 2016 NE-XC took place this weekend.
The event sold out online, with no day entries available - over 170 riders were booked in. It was set to be a great start to the season.
The XCEnduro team spent a great deal of time clearing out sections of terrain to create an interesting and varied course, with quick paced flowing sections and some more technically challenging parts.
The run up to the event had been dry, but heavy rain overnight changed the terrain and race day saw beautiful sunshine, through to thunderstorms and hail.
The junior race was very challenging for the young riders and they all performed outstandingly given the adverse weather conditions that made the course very slippery.
THE YRF Enduro duo of Jack Hughes and Cristina Palmer took to the mud again this weekend the first time both riders would line up together and both were eager to get on to the gruelling course at Woodhouse.
Both riders started in fantastic form, and were quickly met by a climb that proved difficult for majority of the adult field. Both riders took a tumble (or two) at various points of the course as the conditions worsened.
Jack put together a courageous lap aboard his YRF – Race 2 off-road KTM, tackling every obstacle. However, the terrain proved to be too demanding for him and many others, and was unable to complete the race.
Jack quickly jumped in as pit crew for Cristina, displaying the true definition of ‘Team Mate’.
Young Cristina charged on flying the flag of the YRF completing six laps in one hour twenty-two minutes. The young Scot took third place in the Junior class receiving eight points for the championship.
Both riders showed tremendous effort on an extremely challenging course. Cristina’s father Stephen chaperoned his daughter around the course (mandatory for the Junior class) and showed clear signs of fatigue trying to keep up with his nine-year-old lady racer.
The AM race saw Ricky Pearson taking 1st place in Beginners, with 15 laps completed, Andrew Maben in the Over 50’s and Aden Overend in the Sportsman E1 both taking 1st with 17 laps.
The PM race saw the Experts and Clubman classes, with Graham Jarvis finishing 1st on 24 laps, followed closely by Lee Sampson on 23 and XCenduro rider Sam Ludgate on 22.
Clubman E1 rider James Gamble completed 18 laps for 1st place with John Bradford completing 21 in the Over 40A.
Fastest lap of the day went to Graham Jarvis.
There were some tired riders towards the end of the race, and marshals were on hand to keep the course clear and avoid any bottlenecks.
The day saw parts of the course diverted in the all three races to new sections that the XCenduro team had prepared, knowing the changing weather system Woodhouse has!
The riders all went home with rather a lot of mud on the bikes and boots as it ended up a rather muddy event.
The riders, the XCenduro team and all the marshals; without you, these events can’t happen.
The sponsors and spectators for helping create a fantastic atmosphere.
Special mention to The tractor driver and those of you who were stuck for having a great deal of patience!
If you didn’t manage to get a ride this time, get booked in early for the next event, you won’t regret it!
