Scottish Borders Enduro Club that they are unable to run the planned 1st round of the 2013 Scottish Enduro Championship this weekend, we felt that you the riders need to get out on your bikes somehow. As such we plan to hold a 3 hour H&H this coming Sunday 19 of May at Birkenhill for those of you who wish to get out for a race. We had planned to run this as our previously postponed Championship H&H but as we are limited for space and unable to have the usual mass start for each class, as well as that a couple of riders have got in touch to say they think it's far too short notice so this event will just be a club H&H. As I'm sure you'll appreciate to provide the medical cover and to cover insurance costs etc' etc' we will have to reach a certain amount of riders otherwise it wont be possible, so it's entirely up to you guys.
We just want to get everyone back out on your bikes before you all turn to golf or drink, if you wish to attend please complete the form below and I'll be in touch to confirm rider numbers.
Price will be £40 per rider,
Scrutineering & Signing On 09.00am -10.30am Sharp.
Start time TBC
Many thanks as always go to Mr & Mrs Simon Jackson for continuing to allow us to use their land.

Know your regs
This weeks question - You get a puncture - can you change a spare wheel ?
Answer. If the wheel has not been marked then you could change a wheel (not really the intention of the rules and definitely not in a British or World round) - but you must use the original tire. You are not allowed to change a tire during the days competition.
ESR 8 - page 165 Tyre Change: Inner tubes/mousses may be replaced at any time during the event but not whilst the bike is in the parc ferme. Tyres may only be changed at the day’s final time check between the white and yellow flag, or in the morning in the work area.
It's finally here - the first Scottish Enduro of 2013. Straiton Enduro on 19th May. !! Scottish Borders Enduro Club

No E1 classes this year. The new Expert class is to help riders move up and has a couple of laps at clubman pace and a couple at Expert pace. The Experts are in Championship running their normal faster times and extra lap.

ENDURO PRACTICE DAY
Bon Accord Training and Practice Weekend. Training on Saturday 1st June, practice Sunday 2nd June at Lumsden farm, near Rhynie.
After success of first practice day at Craiglash, the Bon Accord club are holding their second practice weekend at Lumsden near Rhynie. The format will be training day on Saturday with Scottish ISDE team members Ricky Mair and Frazer Norrie. A portion of the proceeds will go to this years ISDE fund. On the Sunday there will be open practice. The ground is a mixture of open forest and grass land. The club will setup an easy loop which everyone can get round with hard lines branching off it. This worked well at the last event and gives riders the choice to make it as easy or hard as you wish from lap to lap. It will suit all ability levels from complete novice to expert so dont feel intimidated to come along and give it a go. Both days start with signing on at 10.00am. More details to follow on www.scottishenduros.co.uk or the club webpage www.bamcc.co.uk

Regs changes for 2013 - following the recent dates meeting and feedback from riders, clubs and the Enduro Committee the attached changes to the Enduro regs will take place for the 2013 season. Click here for the 2013 Enduro Standing Regs
These only apply to Enduros and no change has been made to Hare and Hounds regulations
1. Expert Class to be split into Championship and Expert to allow riders to gain experience once promoted from Clubman class.
Championship class – Red plates. 5 laps (where suitable) at Championship pace
Expert Class – Green plates. 4 laps (where suitable) Lap 1 at Clubman pace. Lap 2 and 3 at Championship pace. Lap 4 at Clubman pace.
This is designed to introduce the riders to the increased speed of the Expert class. Existing Expert riders will be classed as Championship – but may apply to the Enduro Committee before the start of the season if they wish to ride Expert.
2. All Championship rounds to count.
3. Clubman E Classes to be removed – due to the decreased number of riders in Clubman. Can be reviewed in future years.
4. Riders may continue to ride in a class after they have won a Championship for a further 2 years. If the rider wishes to remain in the class after that they can ride for no points.
5. Over 50 award. This has been suggested to be awarded on the basis of riders in the Over 40 and Clubman classes as they have the same laps and times. It is not a championship but will be an award at each event with a summary at the end of the season.
6. Rider nos.
Riders will be issued a number at their first event of the year and then retain that number for the rest of the year. These will be based on classes –eg 1 -50 Champ. 51-100 Exp etc.
The numbers for Hare and Hounds may be requested by riders when they enter.
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
