SACU 2000 ENDURO CHAMPIONSHIP
Round  7 SBEC Ian Goodall Memorial Enduro Cardrona Forest

A damp start greeted the riders in Cardrona Forest with the possibility another tough and rutted course to contend with. But the sun came out and the course held up very well to,the passage of 63 riders. Well up to the standard of previous events it was a hard and tiring course but always passable and with some good fast blasts across the moors and forest roads. The mixture of long hills - up and down - and slippy brashed tracks meant that riders rarely had a chance to rest. There were very few riders with course penalties so the timings were spot on.

The cross country test had a fast, tight start through the trees followed by  an off camber section in trees , then onto a road and a long climb up a slippy path to a tight section at the end cards. No room for mistakes but one of the best tests this year.

Mel Hume and his team of workers are to be congratulated on another excellent event - same again next year -please.

Murray Thompson continued his winning run with another excellent performance. Derek Little posted the fastest time of the day but a mistake on the first test costing him dear.

Dougal Walker produced a blistering first test and a consistent ride to win the Over 40 class for 20 valuable points. This class producing some very exciting riding this year with the class still wide open.

In the clubman class Scot Girvan took the Gold with a healthy margin og 16 seconds from Stephen Lafferty. Scott being one of the few riders to post a faster second test time - well done considering the test was starting to cut up. Duncan McCormick on the 4 stroke Yam still sounding good in the forest and getting 6th - well done on a tight course. This was the year of the exhausting course. See Photos for proof. Stan Peterson and Rab Moir both cracked their exhausts at the same weld. I managed to put a football sized ding into the front of my own exhaust (must remember - drive round - not through trees) and Billy Mcgregor almost cut his exhaust in half then completed the whole of the next lap with a flat tire held on with cable ties. Still good enough for a Silver. Respect is due. As usual Cardrona is a great course but long and tough on machinery.

Alan Ritchie and Spike Donald in the Sportsman Class had a close battle swopping test times but with Alan the eventual victor.

Jim Goodall the father of Ian - in whose honour the event was named - finished on Gold. A fine tribute.

Bruce Frew of Scottish Youth Motorcycle and friend of the Goodall family donated a 20 Voucher (courtesy of Mickey Oates Motorcycles ) which will be presented to Stuart McDonald - the final Sportsman Finisher. A thoughtful gesture and much appreciated.
