ISDE Fund raising for the team . A really big thank you to Elgin Endurance club for all their efforts . The training and coaching days raised £1400 and the club has donated £1000 to the team fund. A fantastic effort to give our riders  the best start to their campaign.

Thanks must also go to Towergate insurance for waiving their charges on the practice day.

 The SACU is pleased to announce that they are once again backing Scottish motorcycle sport by donating £1000 towards the costs of sending the Scottish enduro team to compete in the prestigious International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) which this year is being hosted by the city of Kosice in Slovakia. The directors are confident that a rejuvenated union will be in a position to satisfy similar requests from all disciplines going forward. In the meantime may we take this opportunity to wish the team the best of luck and here’s hoping that their hard work will bring the rewards that are deserved.”

  And great news for the team - we have a new sponsor for the team - BPEC

BPEC are delighted to support The Scottish Auto Cycle Union (SACU) – Team Scotland in this year’s International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) taking place in Slovakia during September 2015.

Financial assistance has been provided to SACU through the BPEC Sport Award to support a team of 3 riders competing in this year’s International Six Day Enduro taking place in Kosice, Slovakia. The ISDE competition will see teams compete from all over the world and is often referred to as the Olympics of motorcycling sport. Riders compete for individual Gold, Silver or Bronze medals as well several team competitions. Team Scotland are once again entered in the National Club Team competition. In 2013 they achieved a top 5 result with all 3 riders picking up a gold medal. Read more . . . .

 

We are also very pleased to announce that Rock Oil are supplying the team with lubricants and all lubricants for the event. A very generous and essential part of the team

The sale of tee shirts and caps is going well - still available.

Colin Hume has donated an engraved malt whisky bottle from Ballantynes of Selirk- a very rare item and a great memento of the event .

We are still looking for sponsors who would like to assist the team - eg with fuel costs.

The team has also now got it's bike graphics sorted for the event - thanks to Derek Little for sorting out the design

A big thanks to our sponsors for the graphics .

Updated Results for Saturday

Updated Results for Sunday

Thanks to Atholl and Caroline for the results production and to all the members who set up the course over many months - and manned the Tests. And thanks to the riders who took part in what seems to have been a bit of a wet one.

                   

              

Note to all riders from the timekeepers and club secretaries

Please keep your time card in good condition - do not stick to your mudguard and make sure you put your name and number on it.

Very important - fill it in with a pen or pencil - do not use a felt pen or Sharpie. It needs to mark the carbon paper underneath the plastic. The harder cards are to read the longer it takes to work out results.

Thank you - and have a great Season.

  Enduro Regs for 2014 - up date

Changes to Enduro regs for 2014. (No changes to Hare and Hound Regs)

Return to one class for Experts . Sportsman class remains points scoring for 2015. There was a lot of discussion about the class with some newcomers worried about starting in a Championship class and some discussion on very fast times in the class. The top riders still get moved up to Clubman B at the end of the season.

In Enduros - The Expert class - all rounds count for Championship. In all other classes no change - one round can be dropped if all rounds completed and there are more than 3 rounds.

I would also remind all riders that the Enduro Committee is a voluntary position and members are voted on at the AGM in February. New members are always welcome and there will be vacancies - so put your hand up.

Get your club forms for 2014 and then get your competition licence so you are ready for the new season.

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
