It's the 18th Anniversary of the enduro website - thanks to all my contributors - I can't do it without you !

Welcome to Scottish Enduros 2017.  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 FRANCE in  2017) and there will be several training and fund raising days over the season.

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.

 

NEWS - Elgin Endurance Club Monaughty Enduro has been cancelled. The course setter Kevin Gauld is unavoidably away and not able to set out the course. Our support goes to Kevin and thanks for all his efforts.

The TEAM ENDURO at the ELRAT enduro at Glendevon.

The joint winners for 2017 are Scottish Borders Enduro Club and Ecosse XC - both on 12 points with ELRAT in 3rd on 25 points.

Good to see competition for the Team event - and riders pushing for a finish for the club.

The rules are changed slightly so that a DNF now attracts more points . ie there were  6 clubs entered that is a max of 12 riders in a class so DNF now gets 12 points - ensuring riders kept going.

Team of 8 riders best 6 finishers to score points. No more than 2 riders per class.  Any doubt over club affiliation - club name on licence to count.

SACU Scottish Enduro Championship 2017  - Round 5 ELRAT Glen Devon 23rd JulyELRAT LOGO - web.jpg (8255 bytes)

ELRAT has a great new Forest for 2017 not far from Yetts o Muckart . Different to Griffin but proper forest, some roads and hopefully a fast test.

Results for Sunday 23rd July Click here . Due to the severe ground conditions and loss of a lap in all classes - all tests have been counted.

A new forest which proved very testing for the riders and Marshalls who kept it all going. Thank you to Ian Little and his team for all the work over the previous months and on the day.

Heavy rain all Saturday and during the event forcing changes to the course and dropping a lap for all riders ( a welcome relief).

Andrew Bisset pushed again in the Experts to win just ahead of Euan McConnell and Fergus Lamb

In the Over 40's Murray Thomson won the day just ahead of Mark Ritchie and Steven Currie.

Ben McCluskey rode a great race for win in Clubman aged of Roddy Clarke and Ross Hamilon

Andrew Maben continues to lead in the Over 50's bring them home ahead of Russell Thomson and Andrew Dean

Andrew Currie took Club B honours ahead of Niall McCallum and fast improving Graeme Paxton

In the Sportsman Max Hamilton took first place leading home james Dodds and Bill Taylor.

Left at the event - a set of blue goggles, a large oily bolt and a large round combination lock and cable.

SACU Scottish Enduro Championship 2017  

Round 1 -Scottish Borders Enduro Club - at Thirlestane - 26th March.

Fantastic start to the Scottish Enduro Season - over 100 riders on a classic forest course. Ground in great condition. Lots of new ground and a lot of hard work put in by the SBEC club. Blue skies and happy faces - and a lot of very tired riders.  This is what Enduro is all about.

One note from the timing teams - make sure your numbers are readable - use the correct colour background and numbers - white numbers on yellow or black numbers on green are almost invisible.

ELRAT LOGO - web.jpg (8255 bytes)ELRAT Practice Day.19th March at Pitmeadow Farm, Muckhart Road Dunning

33 riders turned up for the Dunning practice day. A chance to get out in the trees and woods and a wee bit of soft ground before the start of the season.

Thanks to Lindsay for setting up the course and adding on the extra mileage. With a damp start it dried out as the day went on and riders were getting some good lap times in the forest. The open hillside proved a bit of a challenge to start but the course settled in well and gave the riders a chance to test their fitness

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
