  The Highland Enduro Club Championship October 3rd Hare and Hounds.

Another excellent event with some new ground added to the course. The stubble field was a flat out 5th gear blast to clear any cobwebs away. Then back across the moor and back into the strength sapping sandy special test - where lots of rides were getting some big air time.

Thanks to HEC for another great event - always worth the travelling to get there (one rider was setting back off to Berwick. )

With the final Enduro of the year worth double points in the Championship there was a good turnout of riders to fight for the last points of the season.

Due to issues at Drumtochty the final round was back at Craiglash where the Bon Accord club put on a great round with a testing and fast cross country test.

The event was won by Expert Ben Thomson putting in a very smooth ride to finish his season. Euan McConnel turned out for a quick run round the forest and finished 2nd - ahead of Kagen McKenzie who has been improving all year.

The Expert B class has proved popular this year - hopefully we will have more riders joining next year. The Event was won by Andrew Currie in his first outing of the year. Richard Hay consistent as ever in 2nd with Owen Gourlay in 3rd.

The Over 40's was lead home by Kenny Thomson closely followed by Gavin Thomson and James Harvey. Richie Finnie and Alan Davidson continued their rivalry with Richie taking the honours.

Jamie Black produced a spirited ride to take Clubman honours ahead of Angus Bruce and Ben McLuskey

In the Over 50's Neil Dawson pushed hard to take the win from Steven Currie Snr with Peter Shaun in 3rd

Clubman B was won by Calum Hill with another win to add this tally this year, Stevie Durrand took 2nd with Matty Cameron in 3rd.

In the Sportsman class Callum Davidson finished the year with another win . Gregorz Nowak close behind in 2nd and David MacGillivray claiming more points in 3rd

A fine conclusion to a hard season after all the troubles of the COVID Pandemic. Many thanks to all the clubs and many officials and volunteers for their efforts during the season.

And finally - thanks to "What the Fork " for excellent food during the day. Well worth the trip up for.

Lauder  on 30th May

Results now available.   https://my.raceresult.com/170754/results . Please note these are provisional results only.

A fantastic day at Woodheads Farm Lauder with DirtBike Evolution. Glorious sunshine welcomed a full entry of riders.

Although the weather was dry and the course in perfect condition there were a few damp patches - particularly the muddy hole in the  middle of the test  and the small swamp at the end of the lap.

With riders keen to get some bike time before the summer break the club put on another superb event with thumbs up all round

Fergus Lamb continued his wining way with a fast final test to take the lead  with Fraser Flockhart in 2nd and Ben Thompson in 3rd.

A great timing result with times available online . COVID 19 still causing problems for the organisers with time cards not being used meaning time penalties take a bit longer to work out.

Another great forest Enduro from Stuart Cooper and the team at Bon Accord. Bill Mcgregor and Di Stuart welcomed the 90 riders to a sunny course set out to test the riders.

Several new faces were present - trials riders Joe and Neil Dawson who know the forest well and decided to try on Enduro bikes. And John Kerwin from South of the border back up for a shot at a Scottish event ( after organising many  events such as Keilder) .

 

The course was the usual mixture of tight trees , rocks, hill climbs  and a few damp patches thrown in for good measure. With times perfect on the day - tight enough to keep the top riders in the class pushing.

 

Winner on the day was Fergus Lamb who was inch perfect in the test with super consistent times. Kevin Murray doing a great job in 2nd with ben Thomson flying round for 3rd.

 

In the over 40's Kenny Thomson kept it clean all day for the win with evergreen Gavin Johnston in 2nd and Nicky Beavitt as fast as ever in 3rd

 

Angus Bruce kept his winning ways with 1st in the Clubman followed home by Alastair Millar with Graham Mechan in 3rd

 

In the over 50's Robbie Allan turned up on the smart looking Beta for the win with Duncan McCormick returning to competition with 2nd and Shaun Sinclair bring up 3d.

 

Callum Hill took the win in the Clubman B with Stephen Durrand in 2nd and Alasdair Duncan 3rd.

 

Sportsman were led home by Callun Davidson with David Macgillvray in 2nd and Gregorz Nowak 3rd

 

John Kerwin made his long trip worthwhile with a win in the Sportsman Vets . Gerry Day on his wee Montesa coming in 2nd to keep his points up. Steven Clark finished in 3rd - clean on time.

 

And Sammi Filsell finished the event with a big smile on her face ( " not as hard as Lossie ")

 

Looking forward to Lauder in two weeks.

 

Fergus Lamb at speed in the test.

    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.

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.
