Illegal Riding Thetford Forest - The Police will
Following the recent Muntjac British Championship Enduro in Thetford
Forest, the Forestry Commission has caught a number of illegal riders.
Some of these riders are from outside of the Eastern Centre. The police
have been provided with details of names and vehicles and have emphasised
that they will make full use of all powers available to them. This
includes the possibility of vehicles being seized and riders prosecuted
for any offences. The police has also been provided with details of
information on Facebook actively promoting illegal riding in the area.
The ACU has also previously made the situation clear that any member
caught will, under the ACU National Sporting Code, have their licence
suspended. In summary, if riders, whether licensed or not, continue to
illegally ride in Thetford Forest, the likelihood of future events being
held will be seriously reduced.

Lee Dell Rochdale - OL11 5UN December 6th
The first RAW HARD enduro is scheduled for Sunday December 6th at Lee Dell
Rochdale. The course will be expertly designed by HARD Enduro veteran Wayne
Braybrook. Wayne has a keen eye for spotting testing natural terrain. The
aim is to have a HARD enduro event which tests riders of all abilities.
Riders may need help from a riding buddy as there is NO outside assistance
allowed. Stream crossings, riding down the old mill spill ways, under
bridges, cobbled roads, and mill ruins will be the key features. Open
moorland, hill climbs, descents, and hopping over dry stone walls will make
up the remainder of the lap.
The final format is to be decided the week of the event, although at the
moment we are looking to create a long lap which will give top experts
around a 2 hour race. There will be a target number of laps to be completed,
once the target is reached by the lead rider the course will be closed down.
There will then be a time allowance to be confirmed for all other riders to
finish the race signalled by Air Horns at key sections of the track.
Can all riders please note, this event will only run if we have enough
entries in BEFORE Wednesday December 2nd. Track marking begins that day and
we will only start work if there is enough to make the event viable.
Remember guys and girls, the Extreme season is happening December January
and February, so get some training in now in the form of a great event from
the RAW crew. Entries are £55 for all riders, we accept IOPD and ACU
Licences. So if you are riding get your details to RAW Enduro on a text
stating riders name, class, Riding number and licence number. Day Licences
