SACU Enduro Championship a
two day event at Dirtbike Evolution's Woodheads track - 5/6th August.
Saturday was a great day out in
sunshine on a dry track. Lots of new ground including tracks
across the road. The special test was a flier with a lot of
effort and tape put in to it. Some tricky off cambers -just
it well it wasn't damp - ask Steven Currie about that !!
Fraser Flockhart was flying with
Andrew Bisset in close pursuit with Ben Thomson charging
hard in 3rd. And Fraser was on top form on Sunday to lead
them home with Andrew and Ben chasing.
Thanks to Stevie and the crew at DBE
for a fantastic weekend - shame more riders didn't turn up.

many years riding trials and ISDT's Jim also road in Enduros
and has been a staunch supporter of the ISDE. Jim and Linda
have been to many of these events supporting the riders in
all conditions - hot and cold. Jim is also a great
fund raiser for the ISDE Team providing support for the team

Watch out - thieves about again.
Scott Winton had his new Husky and a second bike from his
garage not long after the Heriot enduro. It seems a tracker
was used to locate the bikes. Any info about them pass on to
the police or Scott. He has a post on Faceook .
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.
At home use a
ground or wall anchor and a quality chain. Remove rear wheel
spindles and keep in the house. Use a baby monitor if your
shed or garage is separate to the house so you can hear any
bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at

Championship Enduro 20th MAY at Bon Accord Craiglash
A great event
with lots of new tracks and a new test. Thanks to Stewart
Cooper and the team.
Some new faces
at the event - good to see new young riders getting round so
marshals looked very efficient in their new red bibs -
keeping the spectators and riders safe. The course was the
usual mix of woods with off camber hills and the odd wee
rock to catch out the unwary. Never an easy course but a

Evolution Enduro on 22nd April at Woodheads near
Lauder. Round 3 SACU Enduro Championship.
A dull but mostly
dry day for the newest venue in the calendar. Clerk of the
course Steven Currie and his team did a great job to get a
10 mile lap on farmland, forest and the odd wee muddy bit
ready in time.
With over 100
riders it kept the check and timing crews busy all day. The
tight and twisting woodland test providing a challenge with
the constant change of direction.
A new feature was
the "Lauder Car Wash" - a deep gully leading to a nice bog
on exit. Great fun to watch .

help and make your numbers easy to read as you ride past.
