SACU 2004 Championship ENDURO

Round 4 - Scottish Borders Enduro Club Little Clyde  Enduro

27th June 2004

A very hard event for the riders - with most retiring after one lap. Well done to those who did a lap and respect to those who did the full course. Machines suffered with blown gaskets and a lot boiling up in the very slippy ground with no traction.

Heavy rain over the previous week meant a soaked course with very little rapid tracks to cool the engines and clear the tires. But hills were passable with extreme effort - although only a few had machines that hadn't blown up or had the legs to walk the full length of a climb.

Richard Hay put in another awesome performance - coming in early every lap - and always smiling .  Closely followed by the rapid Crawford Carrick-Anderson ( just back from the World Mountain Bike Champs at Ft William where he was one of the top British riders). At  least there you get to go down the hills. A delay caused by a fallen rider in front of him costing him valuable seconds .

Murray Thomson kept his title hopes alive with a very determined ride - guts and big balls getting him through the day. Karl Dungait enjoyed his day - despite some new Nikasil for his barrel and a new piston.Jeff McCleary was tired as he went out for his last lap - but not as bad as his bike - which expired and left him a long walk back.

In the Clubman - only John Francis and Rab Moir managed the 4 laps - most riders or their bikes expiring on the long off camber hills.

Ian Paterson is making a charge for the Over 40 title this year and got his first win of the year. Only Adam Lynam was able to keep up for the full course. Most riders retiring after the second lap. Steve Potts from the North East ( Organiser of Otterburn) was up for a quick blast - but decided he likes his moors back home .

Finally - only 2 riders in the sportsman class made it home. They had a shorter course with some of the hills cut out. But it was still very tough. Well done to Owen Gourlay and Shaun Sinclair.  Congratulations to the rest who managed a lap.

Another wet Little Clyde - a shame due to all the hard work put in  by the SBEC club and friends. Hopefully we will get a long dry summer next year and give the course a chance to flow. Thanks for all the hard work to Duncan Braid - clerk of the course - who kept an eye on the course and cut out the worst hills .
