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

Angus Bruce - learning the
Glendevon Enduro 2018 Cancelled.
Press Release from the SACU - "It
is with some sadness and much annoyance that we have to
announce the cancellation of this years ELRAT Enduro at the
Glendevon Forest Complex on the 3rd
of June. This
cancellation is specifically due to illegal riders in and
around the forest creating additional work for the
forresters preventing the club getting access to prepare the
ground for the enduro.
The SACU are deeply disappointed
that this event cannot take place this year due to the
blatantly irresponsible and selfish behaviour of a few
riders who feel they can ride anywhere with no detriment to
our sports. Losing this event is simple proof of how wrong
they are. "
