LETS GO RACING
Taddy Blazusiak domiantes to take win - Knighter comes second
In the ladies race Laia Sainz wins but Emma Bristow pulls off a great 2nd. Read more . . . .
5 riders from the SBEC headed south to Helmsley for the penultimate round of the NEEC championship , having been very heavy rain the night before & on the Saturday an Vinduro had been using the course it was going to be tricky conditions . At the start you were straight into the stubble field test so that got the adrenalin pumping straight away then a further 2 tests per lap after , 1 in the woods using the test they used for the BEC rounds & back into the stubble field for another test . The going was slippery to start with & there were plenty tree roots to give you no rest but got better as the day went on.
Alistair Millar was was riding in the Experts they were doing 4 laps & 9 tests in total , Alistair finished 5th with some pretty consistent times
Mark Ritchie rode in the O40s & went clean on lap times & finished 8th place not bad for having a dodgy hip , knee , elbow , head
Ben Thomson rode in Clubman E1 & finished a fantastic 2nd place in class & 3rd place out of all the Clubman classes
Peter Nixon rode in Clubman E2 finished the race after giving his Elbow a good workout as he gets back to fitness , Pete finished 11th & dropped only 23 mins yes that's right 23 mins
Lindsay Rae was also in Clubman E2 & finished in 8th place after dropping 8 mins yes only 8 mins (serious lack of fitness)
Good day was had by all & well done to Dirtbike Action for another great event Thanks Lindsay Rae
Elgin Endurance Club - Loft Hare and Hounds. And Moray Firth Radio "Cash for Kids " appeal
A great day out and some new extreme elements to the course.

Rock Oil, first major sponsor for the SACU Scottish ISDE team
The SACU is delighted to announce that Rock Oil will supply the oils and fluids for the 100th Anniversary SACU ISDE team that is heading out to Sardinia in September this year.
The ISDE Team consisting of Ricky Mair, Neil Chatham, Frazer Norrie and Team manager Sam Davidson were all pleased to be supported by a quality oil supplier.
Russell Bower Marketing Manager of Rock Oil said I under stood that it was difficult for the team to pick up sponsorship as they were only informed they definitely had a team in April and most companies have allocated their budgets by now but we are very happy to support the team for the dual celebrations, the SACU 100th Anniversary and 100 years of the ISDE, a unique celebration and we wish the team the best of luck.

Regs changes for 2013 - following the recent dates meeting and feedback from riders, clubs and the Enduro Committee the attached changes to the Enduro regs will take place for the 2013 season. Click here for the 2013 Enduro Standing Regs
These only apply to Enduros and no change has been made to Hare and Hounds regulations
1. Expert Class to be split into Championship and Expert to allow riders to gain experience once promoted from Clubman class.
Championship class Red plates. 5 laps (where suitable) at Championship pace
Expert Class Green plates. 4 laps (where suitable) Lap 1 at Clubman pace. Lap 2 and 3 at Championship pace. Lap 4 at Clubman pace.
This is designed to introduce the riders to the increased speed of the Expert class. Existing Expert riders will be classed as Championship but may apply to the Enduro Committee before the start of the season if they wish to ride Expert.
2. All Championship rounds to count.
3. Clubman E Classes to be removed due to the decreased number of riders in Clubman. Can be reviewed in future years.
4. Riders may continue to ride in a class after they have won a Championship for a further 2 years. If the rider wishes to remain in the class after that they can ride for no points.
5. Over 50 award. This has been suggested to be awarded on the basis of riders in the Over 40 and Clubman classes as they have the same laps and times. It is not a championship but will be an award at each event with a summary at the end of the season.
6. Rider nos.
Riders will be issued a number at their first event of the year and then retain that number for the rest of the year. These will be based on classes eg 1 -50 Champ. 51-100 Exp etc.
The numbers for Hare and Hounds may be requested by riders when they enter.
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
