In an effort to improve the site I have joined the 21st Century - I am now on Twitter and will use it to notify of results - regs and any new Enduro stuff. Find me at http ://www.twitter.com/enduroinfo
The first event of the year is the British Enduro Championship 2 Day event at Lossiemouth
Run by the Elgin Endurance Club - and a firm favourite in the calendar. This year it is all off road.
Scottish riders can enter on line if they contact the ACU first to get a dummy licence set up on the system. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, with your full name, date of birth & address. You will need an SACU licence or can take out a day licence for the event.

Timing of Enduros for 2015
Timing instruction day soon in Edinburgh / Glasgow area if you are interested. Email for details
Over the past the three years the SACU break beam timing system has been in use - with results often being available on the day - or later that night.
We desperately need people to run the system and are looking for volunteers to learn how it runs (very simple) and to attend events during the season. Travel costs would be met for anyone willing to help out. Ideally 2 people or groups so that one person does not have to do it all year.
If you are interested contact me ( webmaster @ scottishenduros.co.uk) for more information. We intend to run a couple of training days to get folk up to speed on the kit. If you are interested in computers that would be ideal.
To start the year off the BIG ONE - the Dakar Rally.
This year won by Marc Coma (KTM) again - never easy and pushed all the way by Paulo Goncalves on a Honda crf450. (His was the bike that caught fire last year).
Check out www.dakar.com for daily reports and updates. This year one of the British riders has a good chance of a top three placing - Sam Sunderland
Best of luck to Sam - all the British riders - and all the competitors. Looks like being an extra tough one this year.
Navigation is always a big factor - Day one Sam wins averaging 80- mph over 100 miles - Awesome .Day two - loses 2 hours . And then crashes out with a broken collar bone the next day. The DAKAR is a hard enduro.

Enduro Regs for 2014 - up date
Changes to Enduro regs for 2014. (No changes to Hare and Hound Regs)
Return to one class for Experts . Sportsman class remains points scoring for 2015. There was a lot of discussion about the class with some newcomers worried about starting in a Championship class and some discussion on very fast times in the class. The top riders still get moved up to Clubman B at the end of the season.
In Enduros - The Expert class - all rounds count for Championship. In all other classes no change - one round can be dropped if all rounds completed and there are more than 3 rounds.
I would also remind all riders that the Enduro Committee is a voluntary position and members are voted on at the AGM in February. New members are always welcome and there will be vacancies - so put your hand up.
Get your club forms for 2014 and then get your competition licence so you are ready for the new season.

English and Irish Riders - all very welcome. All you need is your ACU/MCUI race licence. Join an English/Irish club and get an ACU race licence. Accepted at all Scottish races (and MCUI ones). You do not need to get a Scottish licence to race in Scotland.
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 .
