A team spokesman said: “Unfortunately there were still two off-road bikes in the desert and the details for these riders are yet unknown.
“The team will continue to target those who put their own and other members of the public’s safety at risk.
“If you see any off road vehicles in the desert area of Mansfield please send us the details of the vehicles.”
