East Lothian Road/Trail Blairadam Enduro 3rd October 1999

SACU National Championship

A closely fought event with Richard Hay returning to Scottish action after British and World Rounds. With course times fairly relaxed for all classes due to the threat of rain the deciding battles were always going to be over the special test.  A combination of a fast blast through a wooped section followed by a short road section then into a tight taped woodland area. Any mistakes would be punished and a flowing test would win. 

The course was run in Blairadam Forest at Kelty in Fife over Forest Enterprise land and had some forest road work combined with a downhill mountainbike section and slippy climbs . Rain for the previous two weeks meant the course was very slippy on the first lap but seemed to improve as the day went on. Sportsman avoided the only bog , which was meshed to give grip but still caught a few riders unawares - usually when there were spectators

Richard Hay won the expert class by ten seconds from Derek Little who showed rising star Euan McConnell the way home also by ten seconds.  Euan finished above Richard and Derek at the recent ISDE but still needs to practice on his home turf to beat the established riders.

Stewart Livingston finished ahead of Keith Baird and Geoff Pennycook . With only a few points separating them at the top of the points table there is all to play for at the Melville enduro at Yair. Test times were very close with only a second separating 3rd 4th and 5th.

Hugh Richards won the Sportsman class with some very fast times and must be looking to compete in the clubman class next year. Pauline Hay was the only lady out on the course and  will hopefully be going for the new ladies award next year .
