SACU Scottish Enduro Championship 2017 - Round 6 Bon Accord at Drumtochty Forest.
Provisional Results v 2 . Click here
A great new forest at Fettercairn - always a challenge for clubs. Bon Accord put on another testing event on a steeply cambered forest . The ground held up well with Expert riders completing 7 laps. The test was a tight run through the trees up and down the side of a hill.
It was good to see the return to a Scottish forest of "Iron Man" Richard Hay pushing the younger riders hard all day. On the going Andrew Bisset managed to snap a chain but only dropped one minute on time - Enduros are about keeping going despite all problems.
Thanks to Stuart Cooper for all his work over the recent weeks to set out the course and for Bon Accord giving us the chance to compete in another new forest.
The event was won by Fergus Lamb closely followed by Andrew Bisset and Ben Thomson in 3rd. In the over 40's the battle resumed between Steven Currie and Mark Ritchie with the pair pushing hard all day - but Steven ending up the winner by the end of the event
In The new Over 50's class Andrew Maben took the win by 1 second from Duncan McCormick who was looking forward to a tough forest enduro. Neil McGregor finishing 3rd in the class
In the Clubman Andrew Scaife was the winner by 5 seconds from Kenny Thomson and Andrew Currie close behind in 3rd
Clubman was won by Gareth Jamieson looking strong all day to finally get a 1st place after 2nd, 3rd and 4th during the rest of the year. Nial McCallum was 2nd with Dean Buchan in 3rd
Max Hamilton was 1st in the Sportsman ahead of Danny Conroy and Liam Clark after a tough day in the forest.

DIRT BIKE EVOLUTION PRACTICE DAY 10TH Sept 2017
The newest Enduro club in Scotland held their first event at Lauder in the Borders. A hare and hound practice in a tight wood with an MX type test in a large field.
With a few wee showers to keep things interesting it was a great event to start the club.
Well supported with some stalwarts and a few new faces. Thanks to Steven and the club for a great day out.
Final result for Team Scotland for the week. 15th in the club team competition out of 167 teams . Unfortunately there was a death of a British rider from the Sheepskulls team on day one - Michael Alty. A very well respected and popular rider he will be sadly missed by the Enduro community. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Due to no fault of his own Euan McConnel was delayed on 2 days but put in some great performances for the rest of the week. Ben Thomson put in a storming ride at his first ISDE . Frazer Norrie as always pushed hard and was very rapid.
The Elgin Bus Boys had a good ride but lost Alan Davidson who was retired by the organisers on day 2 for safety reasons . The event was extremely hot and the organisers were looking after riders safety - better safe than sorry but a real shame for Alan as he was doing well on day 2.
Top British club team was the Welsh in 2nd - a fantastic result for them.
Team GB with Fraser Flockahrt and Kevin Murray alongside Nathan Watson and Lee Sealey came home in 5th - another great result ahead of some big teams. The winners were home team France ahead of Australia
The GB Junior Trophy team came home just off the podium in 4th - another top performance.
There are lots of photos on Facebook on the Scottish Enduro Riders group. Here a few from Owen Gourlay. Ben Thomson, Frazer Norrie and Andrew Bisset and Fraser Flockhart for Team GB.
Well done to all the riders and support crew for a big effort. You keep the flag flying for Scotland
Team Scotland is raring to go and looking for a good result with three of our top riders and a lot of experience. Ben Thomson starts his first ISDE and will benefit a lot from the experience.
The Elgin Team members have also been practicing hard this year in the Expert class - and are looking forward to the event . Best of luck to all our Scottish riders - including new Enduro rider Trials Expert Stuart Mack riding for the ARMY.
Frazer Norrie, Euan McConnell and Ben Thomson
Elgin Endurance Club
Andrew Bisset, Alan Davidson and Mitchell Brown.
Best of luck to all the riders and teams . And best of luck to riders in the Vintage ISDE.

Fraser Flockhart moves to Team GB Trophy Team to replace Josh Gotts - retiring through injury. A great achievement for Fraser to finally get a place in Team GB. He has 2 previous years at the ISDE with Team Scotland and helped put Scotland to their highest placing ever 4th and best UK Team.
He has the experience and ability to perform at the highest level on the world stage - we congratulate him and wish him and the team a great event.

And another Scot has earned a place in Team GB Trophy team - Army rider Kev Murray - an ISDE regular and supporter of Team Scotland.He replaces Brad Freeman. “After competing in the first of my 12 ISDEs in 1999 this will be my third time riding for Team GB. Having placed fourth in C2 last year I was already looking forward to improving on that result, but this news from Team Manager Dusty Martin has blown me away!

Good to see competition for the Team event - and riders pushing for a finish for the club.
The rules are changed slightly so that a DNF now attracts more points . ie there were 6 clubs entered that is a max of 12 riders in a class so DNF now gets 12 points - ensuring riders kept going.
Team of 8 riders best 6 finishers to score points. No more than 2 riders per class. Any doubt over club affiliation - club name on licence to count.

A new forest which proved very testing for the riders and Marshalls who kept it all going. Thank you to Ian Little and his team for all the work over the previous months and on the day.
Heavy rain all Saturday and during the event forcing changes to the course and dropping a lap for all riders ( a welcome relief).

SACU Scottish Enduro Championship 2017
Round 1 -Scottish Borders Enduro Club - at Thirlestane - 26th March.
Fantastic start to the Scottish Enduro Season - over 100 riders on a classic forest course. Ground in great condition. Lots of new ground and a lot of hard work put in by the SBEC club. Blue skies and happy faces - and a lot of very tired riders. This is what Enduro is all about.
One note from the timing teams - make sure your numbers are readable - use the correct colour background and numbers - white numbers on yellow or black numbers on green are almost invisible.

ELRAT Practice Day.19th March at Pitmeadow Farm, Muckhart Road Dunning
33 riders turned up for the Dunning practice day. A chance to get out in the trees and woods and a wee bit of soft ground before the start of the season.
Thanks to Lindsay for setting up the course and adding on the extra mileage. With a damp start it dried out as the day went on and riders were getting some good lap times in the forest. The open hillside proved a bit of a challenge to start but the course settled in well and gave the riders a chance to test their fitness

Advice for securing bikes - chain them to the floor or a wall in a garage or secure shed. Remove wheel spindles so the bike can't be pushed away. If in an outside shed use a baby monitor so you can hear if anyone is in the shed. Alarm your bike store. Keep helmets separate so they cant use them to ride away.
When selling a bike - before you show the buyer the bike photograph them and their vehicle. Take a photo of their driving licence.
Remove a wheelspindle and disconnect the spark plug before they arrive. Do not give any documents until cheque or cash is paid into bank. If the buyer objects - say goodbye.
If possible ask your local police station if you could sell the bike at their premises - crooks will not want to be at a Police Station.

NOTE ON HELMETS - IMPORTANT. Check before you turn up at an event
Helmets will only pass scrutinering for racing if they carry an ACU gold or silver sticker attached. All helmets sold as suitable for "ACU competition" will have the stamp affixed by the dealer.
If your helmet does not have an ACU sticker attached contact the dealer to ask for the sticker. Helmets can be assessed by the ACU or SACU by posting in the helmet and paying a £15 certification fee - which includes return postage.
Check the regs in the 2016 ACU Handbook - https://www.acu.org.uk/Uploaded/1/Documents/2016%20Handbook/ACU%20HANDBOOK_2016.pdf page 89.
If you want more riding - the North East of England Championship rounds are well worth doing . Enduro and XC. See http://www.enduro-neec.org.uk/ for more info and a calendar.
If you find the sport is interesting and would like to ride or assist then contact a club as we are keen to attract new members to the sport. There is an over 40's class and a Ladies award, so everyone can get out and ride.
Enduros in Scotland are organised from March to October with events from the Borders to Inverness . All classes of rider are catered for with Expert, Clubman, Sportsman and over 40's classes.
To compete you need to be a member of a club and either hold an SACU or ACU licence - or can get a one day licence at the event. You need to send in an entry form prior to the event, entries are available on this site or from the host club. Events are published in Trials & Motocross News. If you check the Calendar on this site the dates and venues of events and training days are listed. The Contacts page has the addresses of the organising clubs.
The aim of Enduro Competition is to complete the course via several checkpoints in a set time. You may not check in early or late without penalty. Generally the top riders go "clean" and the event is then decided on the result of special test times. There will be one or two tests per lap of a moto-X or cross-country type. For the slower riders there is up to a one hour allowance over the set time for the course to achieve a finish.
Enduros are exactly what they say and even to finish is an achievement. So go on - try an event and get out on the hills. There is no other sport like it.
Please look round this site and if you need further information contact the relevant club or e-mail webmaster @ scottishenduros . co .uk .
Finally, if you are tired of wet and muddy British events have a look at the holidays page. Desert riding or trail riding in Morrocco, Spain, France or Romania. Or the Desert Racing page for Dakar etc links
