It's the 21st Anniversary of the Enduro website - 1999 - 2020.

Welcome to Scottish Enduros 2020.  This site was set up in 1999 as an introduction to the sport. It now contains information on events, results  who to contact and profiles of some of the top Scottish Riders.
The big event each year is the ISDE (in Italy in 2020) and there will be several training and fund raising days over the season.  

Please note that there is no right of access to Scottish forests for trail riding and that unauthorised use may endanger our sport. Ensure you have permission to ride before you go. For a good summary of rights in Scotland see John Rushworths 1999 article stored on this site ( this was pre Land Reform Act so is only a guide ) - click here.

Starting Enduros ? Click here for info on starting. Rules and regs for the sport are available on the SACU website www.sacu.co.uk

Reminder to all competitors throughout the season - all clubs have noise meters and will be testing . So keep it quiet .

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.

In the Hare and Hounds regs there is also a new Sportsman Over 50 Vets Class for riders who are 50 or over before the date of the first H&H Championship round.

The SACU Awards Ceremony will be at Livingston at the end of January - 18th January at the ARMY Reserve Hall - Beveridge Square .  EH54 6QF

Can all those with trophies please return them to the SACU at Uphall as soon as possible to get them engraved with our new Champions.

Due to very heavy rain Dirtbike Evolution had no choice but to cancel - even the test was flooded. Thanks to Dirtbike Evolution for a great season and some fantastic racing.

This meant there were only 9 rounds for the season - and riders who scored points in every round only drop one round.

So for 2019 we have a tie for 1st place in the Enduro Championship with Fergus Lamb and Andrew Bisset tied on points. After counting back over 1st places, 2nd places and third place they were still level on points. This has been one of the closest seasons racing for many years and during the year they were only seconds apart after 5 hours of racing.

So we have a tied Enduro Championship with both riders being awarded 1st place. Ben Thomson brings up the Expert podium in 3rd

Congratulations to our new Champions for 2019 - a great season of racing and a lot of effort by the clubs and the riders

SACU YOUTH HARE & HOUNDS CHAMPIONS 2019

Under review

 

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 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.

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

Check the regs in the 2020 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. 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.
