The final SACU Championship Hare and Hound of the
season was on 21st October at Birkenhill near Elgin -
organised by Elgin Endurance Club .
Won by Andrew
Bisset - the new 2018 SACU Expert Hare and Hound Champion.
A great event
with a new feature - a spiral in the field course -
apparently easy to ride but very confusing for
spectators trying to see who is going where. Apparently an
idea picked up from the French at the ISDE - all set out by
Mitchell Brown. As always EEC are an innovating club.
- Thanks to James Dodds and the parents who turned up to
help run the race - and to Vica for the scoring.

Thank you to all the Riders who entered the event it was a
great turnout & to all the Marshals for helping out

Watch out - thieves about again.
There were attempts to steal bikes just after the Glendearg
H&H. Luckily they were thwarted - but take care. Again check
for trackers on your vehicles and bikes.
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.
At home use a
ground or wall anchor and a quality chain. Remove rear wheel
spindles and keep in the house. Use a baby monitor if your
shed or garage is separate to the house so you can hear any
bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at
Scottish Borders Enduro Club ran a Charity Hare and
Hounds on Sunday 2nd September in aid of the
Teenage Cancer Trust
in memory of Craig Nixon.
It was a well
supported event with 100 riders entered. The club put on a
great course with an "extreme " section to test the riders.
The event was dry for the event which allowed the newer
riders to get round the course.
A great job by
the club and thanks for all their hard work - it was worth
it. The club also ran a raffle at the event with a lot
of local and distant sponsors contributing a large number of
prizes - from goodie bags to sets of tires - very generous .
The insurer Sports Insure and the SACU waived the costs for
the event so all the money raised goes to the charity.
to all the riders who turned out on the day to support the
event . And as always a thank you to landowner for the use
of the ground

SACU Enduro Championship a
two day event at Dirtbike Evolution's Woodheads track - 5/6th August.
Saturday was a great day out in
sunshine on a dry track. Lots of new ground including tracks
across the road. The special test was a flier with a lot of
effort and tape put in to it. Some tricky off cambers -just
it well it wasn't damp - ask Steven Currie about that !!
Fraser Flockhart was flying with
Andrew Bisset in close pursuit with Ben Thomson charging
hard in 3rd. And Fraser was on top form on Sunday to lead
them home with Andrew and Ben chasing.
Thanks to Stevie and the crew at DBE
for a fantastic weekend - shame more riders didn't turn up.

Championship Enduro 20th MAY at Bon Accord Craiglash
A great event
with lots of new tracks and a new test. Thanks to Stewart
Cooper and the team.
Some new faces
at the event - good to see new young riders getting round so
marshals looked very efficient in their new red bibs -
keeping the spectators and riders safe. The course was the
usual mix of woods with off camber hills and the odd wee
rock to catch out the unwary. Never an easy course but a

Evolution Enduro on 22nd April at Woodheads near
Lauder. Round 3 SACU Enduro Championship.
A dull but mostly
dry day for the newest venue in the calendar. Clerk of the
course Steven Currie and his team did a great job to get a
10 mile lap on farmland, forest and the odd wee muddy bit
ready in time.
With over 100
riders it kept the check and timing crews busy all day. The
tight and twisting woodland test providing a challenge with
the constant change of direction.
A new feature was
the "Lauder Car Wash" - a deep gully leading to a nice bog
on exit. Great fun to watch .
