John Little Memorial Enduro  Highland Enduro Club - Lossiemouth 1/2 May 2021

Results - Saturday ver 2     Results - Sunday ver 2

 

    Photos of the event here - Lossie 2021

 

A great start to the new season with the first two days run by Highland Enduro Club.  Sunny on Saturday and dry on the Sunday

With this being the first event run under COVID 19 restrictions there were some extra safety measures and social distancing in place . All riders and crew were checked for temperature at the gate before entry.

The course was slightly eased as it was the first event most riders had been at for over a year. But this was Lossie and it lived up to it's reputation. First rider away at 10:00 and not finished till 4:30. Five laps of the sandy and twisty test in the trees to decide the winner.

With the first test not counting riders had a chance to get to grips with the course before pushing to the max from lap 2. Never an easy course it was as testing as ever. Due to running a month later due to COVID 19 restrictons there was no beach section due to nesting Arctic Terns - but there was still enough sand.

A new rider to the course Nieve Holmes from England was one of two ladies on the course. Riding expert class she got to grips with the sand and seemed to enjoy her days. Very stylish and aggressive as set some very quick times in the test.

 

Winner on day one was Fraser Flockhart with Frazer Norrie in 2nd and Fergus Lamb in 3rd .

On day 2 it was Frazer Norrie who took the honours with Fraser Flockhart in 2nd and a very consistent Kevin Murray in 3rd.

Our thanks to Jim Mair and the Highland Enduro Club for a great weekend and thanks to the Forestry Land Scotland for the use of the ground.

The next event is Bon Accord at Craiglash on the 16th May - regs available at www.bamcc.co.uk

Those of you who knew John Little were privileged, although personally at the time I never realised it. Many times, John would question my manhood if I moaned about being knackered, injured, the track too hard or too slippy.

John was himself a rider of considerable ability having ridden the SSDT many times and the ISDE three times once on a factory Laverda!

It was this wealth of experience that made him special, and although somewhat glad to be rude to myself he would encourage other riders not to give up.  Read more here

As a final Tribute - some of Johns ashes were scattered on the special test - a tribute to his efforts and love of the sport over many years.

 

 

 

With COVID restrictions on travel starting to be eased now is a good time to get some new experience.

Ride Off Road Scotland is a new venture set up by Scottish rider Kevin Murray to get riders off road and get them trained . Kevin is an ARMY ISDE rider and has ridden in the BEC for many years.

He has access to several training areas across Scotland where riders can learn to ride off road. From Novice to experienced rider you will all learn something.

Kevin is also looking to enter the 2023 DAKAR RALLY and hopefully continue our great record of Scottish finishers.

In Hare and Hounds there is also a Sportsman Vets class.

The updated SACU standing regs for 2020 are now available.

The change in the Enduro regs is that there will an Expert B class for 2020 to encourage riders to upgrade. This will run on the same laps as Expert but on a slightly longer lap time.

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.

Avoid having bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at your house.  

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 wheel spindle 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.

At events - Safety advice. 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.

 

NOTE ON HELMETS - IMPORTANT. Check before you turn up at an event

 

Helmets will only pass scrutineering for racing if they carry an ACU gold sticker attached. (Silver stickers are no longer valid 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.

Helmet or body mounted cameras are prohibited. Cameras may be mounted on the motorcycle.

Check the regs in the 2021 ACU Handbook - https://www.acu.org.uk/ridersmembers/acu-handbook.aspx

 

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.

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.
