This is NDH's Northern XC race at Eastgate in County Durham.  We have been racing Gravity events here for a many years and so its now time to get the XC crew involved too.

Northern XC is an XC Olympic style event aimed XC riders and bikes, however an Enduro or Trailbike will get you around the course. Basically whatever bike you take out for a Sunday blast is a cool bike for this event.  

The finish arena is identified by the NDH timing trailer. Riders are advised to wear suitable protection, walk the course prior to riding and ride within their own ability level.
