Despite a slow start to the rider list 98 riders entered the Cose Motor Finance Metzeler Melville Scottish Enduro Championship at Broadmeadows farm near Selkirk on Sunday the 5th September. The riders were welcomed by a misty morning that cleared into perfect riding conditions. The course was shortened for the one day event with a new fast and flowing special test.

 You would never know what Richard Hay has been through over the past year or so when you a watch him ride, the only give away is that he tends to ride with his elbows down since his injury last year, although this has not stopped him leading the Scottish Championship since the end of the second round. Richard won ahead of Derek Little just six seconds behind over the five 18 mile laps with two stroke convert Allyn Scotland third just another four seconds behind on his Suzuki 250.

 Controversy plagued the Over 40 class once more as Gavin Johnston the current Championship leader was excluded for outside assistance during a puncture repair on his third lap. Gavin was down in seventh position before the penalty as he has ridden the third test with a rear flat tyre. Mark Ritchie won the class with a storming performance with his final two special tests right up with the Expert class. Davie Hill finished second with a steady and consistent ride and a delighted Robbie head finished third. The Over forty class is extremely competitive and there is great rivalry between the riders although Gavin Johnston still leads the class by a considerable margin.

 Fraser Flockhart marched ever closer to the Clubman Championship with another special test time quicker than any other rider on the day including the Experts. Steven Currie Jnr finished second with a strong performance and steady consistent test times, both Stevie and Hamish Patrick in third revelled in the excellent riding conditions. The Clubman B was won by Jorda Hayes with Stewart Gilchrist just four seconds behind in second spot with Chris Gallagher third.

 Newcomer to the sport this year Eric Schonwaler won the Sportsman class for the first time with Barry Mckie second and Robert Farrell just three seconds behind in third place.

 Harriet Forbes the Melville Club accountant had a trip of a lifetime when Colin Devenny appeared in his helicopter and give Harriet a birds eye view of the track, course cutters beware!

 This is the last Melville Enduro of the year and it would not be possible without the support of Alex Telfer of Broadmeadows farm and all the helpers on the day. Kenny Donaldson and his team worked hard to ensure an enjoyable day for everyone.
