    Latest news from Jim Mair of Highland Enduro Club on this years Lossie Enduro. 27th Feb

Unfortunately the first round of enduro at Lossiemouth has been postponed at Easter weekend due to the first ministers announcement & the uncertainty of being allowed to run the event in line with restrictions. But hopefully it will be rescheduled for the first weekend in May.

Although we are disappointed about the round not going ahead on the proposed date, we need to stick to the guidelines and ensuring the health and safety of all riders.

We will update the page as soon as we can with anymore relevant information relating to the race.

    News from Jim Mair of Highland Enduro Club on this years Lossie Enduro.

Fellow competitors/enthusiasts,

I am Jim Mair Chairman of the Highland Enduro Club Ltd. and I thought it would be a good idea to bring you up to speed with our plans for Rounds 1 and 2 of the Scottish Enduro Championships due to be run on the 3rd and 4th of April 2021. This event will be called the John Little Memorial Enduro and a new and grand trophy will be awarded to the overall winner of the two days. The winner will be in a different class each year and the idea is to give everyone a chance to win it over time. This year the winner will be from the Expert class.

>We have been issued with an SACU permit and applied to FLS for permission to run the event. Until we can identify the exact route the permission will not be granted but we have been given the go ahead to enter the forest at controlled times to recce a route, and work has begun on this

We have to adhere to Covid restrictions and this means progress is slower than we would like so the route might not be as adventurous as we would have liked. Our wish is that government restrictions revert to the those in place when we successfully ran the H&H at Tain in the autumn.
 

In the event of the restrictions making it impossible to run the event in April we will endeavour to run it in May or June, but we are hoping and planning for the Easter weekend. We were going to try and convince FLS to allow camping but we have decided that it would not be prudent this year as trying to control Covid regulations at night would not be something the club could be held responsible for.
 

If things change we will issue an update but currently this is where we are.


These are the thoughts of Chairman Mair.

New classes for Enduro for 2020

For 2020 there is a new class Expert B running on the same laps but with longer to do the laps. This to encourage riders from Clubman to enter Expert and gain experience before moving up to Expert A.

Expert A nos from 1 - 29 and Expert B from 30 - 39.

The first Expert B is Steven Currie Jnr - we are looking for more riders to join him. Newly promoted riders or those finding the Expert class a bit tight can apply to enter the Clubman B.

There is also Sportsman Vets class for over 50 Sportsmen . Numbers the same and times the same as Sportsman. 

In Hare and Hounds there is also a Sportsman Vets class.

Enduro and Hare and Hounds regulations for 2020

The updated SACU standing regs for 2020 are now available.

The change in the Enduro regs is that there will an Expert B class for 2020 to encourage riders to upgrade. This will run on the same laps as Expert but on a slightly longer lap time.

For 2020 existing Expert class riders can choose which class they wish to ride in. Riders may choose to upgrade to Expert at any time.

The last round of the SACU Enduro Championship series will score double points, i.e. 1st place = 40 points, 2nd place = 34 points and so on.

In the Sportsman class there is a new Sportsman Over 50 Vets  class for riders who are 50 or over before the date of the first Enduro Championship round.

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.

Avoid having bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at your house.  

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 wheel spindle 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.

At events - Safety advice. Check your vehicles for trackers before you leave. Watch out for any vehicles following you. At events photograph any suspicious people or vehicle taking an interest in bikes.

NOTE ON HELMETS - IMPORTANT. Check before you turn up at an event

Helmets will only pass scrutineering for racing if they carry an ACU gold sticker attached. (Silver stickers are no longer valid 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.

Helmet or body mounted cameras are prohibited. Cameras may be mounted on the motorcycle.

Check the regs in the 2021 ACU Handbook - https://www.acu.org.uk/ridersmembers/acu-handbook.aspx

 

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.

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.
