Bon Accord MCC welcomed riders to a renewed Craiglash Forest Championship Enduro. Damage after Storm Arwen meant loads of downed trees and a rerouted course set out by a new and keen team.

Highland Enduro Club Lossiemouth Championship Enduro 16th/17th April 2022

The Highland Club ran a very popular Enduro over the Easter weekend with over 100 riders making the long journey to Lossiemouth.  The course was as testing as always with tight times on the Saturday for all classes. Times on the Sunday were eased for all except the Experts.

Fraser flying

Saturday's event was won by Expert Fraser Flockhart ahead of Andrew Bisset with Ben Thomson finishing in third. Ricky Mair made a welcome return to the forest finishing in 4th. Local expert Kagen McKenzie was 5th with Jack Kitching in 5th.

On Sunday the top three remained the same with Fraser leading them home again. Kagen McKenzie finished in 4th with Greg Gallacher just behind in 5th

Due to storm Arwen there were a large number of trees down which meant a lot of rerouting of the course and a new test for 2022.

The test started with a fast blast through the sand then into the tight forest for the second half of the timed section . As always there was no resting on the course with nearly 5 hours of riding. The top riders managed to stay clean on time despite the tight times.

There was also an incentive for Clubman B riders to push hard in the test as there was bottle of single Malt up for the rider with the fastest single test time on  the Sunday. Presented by Allan Macdonald and won by David MacGillvray it certainly added to the riders motivation.

Thanks to FLS for the use of the land and to the Highland Club for putting on another great event.

 

This year the club are awarding the John Little Memorial Trophy to the fastest Expert B Class rider over the 2 days of competition.

Last year in it's first year of competition it was won by Expert Fraser Flockhart.

John Little was a great supporter of Enduro and ISDE / ISDT competition and was a main factor in the British Enduro Champ coming back to Scotland. John's motivational speeches to struggling riders kept many going when they would have given up - one of the great inspirational people in the Sport. This fantastic trophy is a tribute to him.

Update from Dirtbike Evolution on their plans for 2022. Hare and Hounds on 29th May now cancelled.

We’re not going to be able to run our May event due to not having enough land.  We are planning to run our Sept event as the fields will be done by then and we’ll have stubble to use for the H&H.  Just don’t have this just now and can’t use the land where the trees have fallen.  Planning to just run practice events and our Sept event this year.

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

There is also Sportsman Vets class for over 50 Sportsmen for riders who are 50 or over before the date of the first Enduro Championship round. Numbers the same and times the same as Sportsman. 

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

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.

 

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.

 

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.
