Welcome to Off Road Motorcycle Sport in Scotland (Enduros) 1999 - 2017

It's the 19th Anniversary of the enduro website - thanks to all my contributors - I can't do it without you !

Welcome to Scottish Enduros 2018.  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 CHILE in  2018) and there will be several training and fund raising days over the season.  
New to the site ? - check the site map first for what's here

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.

Final Full Results - Click Here

 

5th of November and lots of fireworks. A fantastic new championship venue set out by Steven Currie and his team for the 1st round of 2018 SACU H&H chanpionship. Adding on extra stubble fields for the existing wooded practice area produced a fast and flowing track - with some very rapid riders out racing today.

With electronic timing showing the positions as they day went out the leaders pushed hard. Andrew Bisset showed real grit when he ran out of fuel downhill from the pits - but pushed the bike in unassisted to refuel and then head off after the leaders.

With some new names on the results it looks like being a hard fought championship for 2018.

With sun all day the track stayed in perfect condition and was enjoyed by a large crowd of spectators.

Provisional results

Expert 1st place James Dent - 2nd Ryan Ireland  3rd Dean Reid

Over 40 James Harvey in 1st pushed hard by veteran rider Rickard McVicker with Ian Bisset in 3rd

Clubman 1st James Barrack 2nd Andrew Currie and David Scott in 3rd

Clubman B Car lHowes led them home followed by iain Henderson and Angus Bruce

Over 50 Andrew Maben looking to retain his title again this year . Duncan McCormick -always a threat in 2nd and Robbie Allan pushed hard for 3rd

Sportsman George McBeth pushed for the win with Carlton Timmins in 2nd and Matty Cameron in 3rd.

Many to thanks to the landwowner for such a fantastic venue - and well done to DirtBike Evolution on a great first championship event .

Over 50 Class

Due to the success of the Over 50 class with high interest shown at all rounds it has been awarded full Championship status for 2017. This means Clubman B will not have any Over 50 riders now. Caroline Thomson has generously offered to put up the trophy for the new Over 50 class.

 

 

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.

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 wheelspindle 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.

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.

Check the regs in the 2016 ACU Handbook - https://www.acu.org.uk/Uploaded/1/Documents/2016%20Handbook/ACU%20HANDBOOK_2016.pdf page 89.

 

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.

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
