Hoare takes Tong! Northern Enduro XC Championships – Race Report & Results

by adminMarch 21, 2018

The everlasting winter decided on a weekend of snow for the opening round of the 2018 NEXC at ‘Tong ‘ Parkwood Off Road Centre, Bradford.

With bad weather in mind  Event director John Kerwin set out a course that would provide a good race and yet remain rideable.

A small youth race started at 9am using most of the adult loop Sam Boyd won the male youth with Holly Inness winning the youth female class, with both riders showed great determination in the conditions.

Despite the conditions a good turn out of adult riders assembled on the start line for the 11 am start. First away were the Experts and Elite vets. Will Hoare took an early lead closely followed by Husky spannerman Damo Butler, Zac Sherwin and Sam Ludgate.  As the race developed Will started to pull a small gap on Sherwin who was now placed in second.  At the chequered flag Will’s winning margin over Zac was 81 seconds, Sam Ludgate finished in 3rd 2 minutes behind Zac, all 3 completed 18 laps. The Elite Vets class was won by Vince Harker on 16 laps with Mark Raynor 2nd and Rob Pearce 3rd.

There was a big battle in the Clubman class, Dawson Marriott who took the holeshot on his Gas Gas and was pushed hard during the first half of the race by Ben Walker.  Dawson won with a 2min 17 sec margin over Ben, with Danny Calkin in third, all completing 16 laps.

Neil Myres won the Sportsman Vets from Nick Barrow while in the Sportsman class Robert Allen lapped his rivals to  be top sportsman, Shaun Downing was second with Josh Gilroy third .

Ross Herrod put in the best performance in the Novice class with Stevie Fitzsimmons 2nd, Rob Gregory won the Over 50 class by a minute from Tony Gunn both completing a solid 14 laps

A big thanks to all the competitors that came and raced most enjoyed the track and the event but an especially big thanks to the marshals. The next event in the series is April 29th  at Woodhouse Farm, Great Ayton. It should be a cracker.
