It's the 20th Anniversary of the Enduro website - 1999 - 2019.

Welcome to Scottish Enduros 2019.  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 Portugal in 2019) and there will be several training and fund raising days over the season.  

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.

Starting Enduros ? Click here for info on starting. Rules and regs for the sport are available on the SACU website www.sacu.co.uk

Reminder to all competitors throughout the season - all clubs have noise meters and will be testing . So keep it quiet .

SACU HARE AND HOUNDS CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 ROUND 1 31st March 2019

The first round of the SACU H&H Championship was run by Ecosse XC at Tyninghame and included a round of the Youth Championship as well ( This was also part of the Northern Youth Enduro Championship)

It was a great start to the season and was greeted with sunshine and a dry course - unlike the first round of the Enduro Champ. Hope fully this will be the same for the next rounds.

Won By Fraser Flockhart ahead of Andrew Bisset and Fergus Lamb - great to see out top riders getting out and fighting for the title.

New rounds added for the SACU Enduro Championship for 2019.

Melville MC have managed to get permission from the landowner to add their Heriot event to the Enduro calendar. The new dates will be 27th and 28th of July. The Enduro committee have approved the dates and also added on an extra dropped round in case some riders can't make it.

If there are more than 3 rounds and up to 9 rounds take place riders drop a round if they scored points in all rounds. If there are 10 or more rounds take place riders drop 2 rounds if they score points in all the rounds. (ie if there are 11 completed rounds a rider will get their best 9 scores.)

For 2019 there will also be a Youth Hare and Hounds Championship over 5 rounds - Ecosse XC + EEC Birkenhill.

Following yesterdays snow the ground was a bit damp in places but the course held up with some work from the club. A tough start to the year and a good one to get your fitness sorted. A lot of tired riders - but a lot of smiles.

There was a short euology by Campbell Chatham before the race in memory of Jim Ballantine  - Jim would have approved of the event - thats what Enduros are about !.

Thanks to Stevie Currie and his hard working crew for getting the season started .

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 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.

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

Check the regs in the 2019 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. 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.
