21st May 2024 1st round Scottish Youth Enduro Weekend. 25/26 May 2024

Cancelled - now a practice weekend

https://elrat.co.uk/bic-rally

Lack of entries means that we can't run a race so it has been changed to a practice for for both days.

The tracks all taped up, and the worst parts of the Mx track have been graded, there's rocks, logs & drainage pipes set up next to the big loop for hard/easy options and the auto track is by the pits, so something for everyone.

Another tough and excellent enduro from the Bon Accord Club. Ross Fisher and his team put together a great day out in the woods for 96 riders.

The journey was well worth it with the usual big climbs, rocks and a tight but flowing special test. A proper enduro and a good one to finish.

Starting dryish it then drizzled for the whole day making the course slippy and muddy as the day went on. The big bog and hill climb was cut.

With lots of marshalls on the course to help out the event kept going with a bit of heaving .

Thanks to Bon Accord for the effort and putting on another great event.

Andrew Bisset took the win by only 10 secs over 5 tests from Sam Boyd who continues to push hard. Ricky Mair continues to impress with 3rd.

Derek Little took the over 40 win ahead of Gavin Johnston with Lee Philip in 3rd.

Duncan Norrie on a classic Honda CR250 (narrow power band and stiff suspension)  took the Clubman class with an impressive ride after a 5 year layoff.

Felix Beavitt continues to improve after moving up a class and took 2nd ahead of Charles Millburn

Robbie Allan continues to enjoy himself in the over 50 class with a win ahead of experienced riders Neil Dawson and Andrew Flockhart.

Robert  Grahan lead the Clubman B class home with a fine ride to lead  Matthew Scott by only 1 second after 3 tests. Nat Leadbitter came in 3rd

John Telfer took the Sportsman win . With John Weir 2nd and Donald Mackenzie in 3rd

The Over 50 Vets is always competitive with John Hume coming in 1st ahead of Alan Strachan and Marco Martinelli who all remained  clean on time.

The next Enduro will be SBEC at Fala Hill on 1st June with a H&H on the 2nd . Another great weekend of sport.

Calum Hill gets the power down.

A great start to the new Enduro Championship with the season opener at Lossiemouth.

Rounds 1 and 2 were staged by the Highland Enduro Club at the popular Lossiemouth forest. In a change from previous years

there was no beach run with deep sand but this was made up for by a monster bog which claimed a few bikes.

The test was run in the trees and was a tight and testing challenge with some close racing .

Andrew Bisset claimed victory on both days followed home by Frazer Norrie in a rare appearance but showing all his normal

speed. Sam Boyd continues to impress with a fine pair of thirds.

Youngsters Robbie Davidson and Cai Hewitt moved up to the Expert class and put in some fast times over the extra lap .

Cai Hewitt suffered from the dreaded Lossie Foot ( a recognised medical term) and only completed the Saturday.

Thanks to Jim Mair and the hard working team for another memorable event under trying circumstances - including

lightning and hailstones on the Saturday.

The next round is at Craiglash with Bon Accord in 3 weeks on 21st April.

23rd January 2023

Watch out - thieves in action in Perthshire.  Apparently there is a gang doing the rounds breaking into garages.

This looks like a targeted theft so lock up your bikes - remove wheel spindles & keep them out of sight. Ground anchors are good as they are noisy to deal with.

This is a KTM 250 ECX -F that has been stolen - please pass any info on to the Police.

Advice for securing bikes

Chain them to the floor or a wall in a garage or secure shed.

Remove wheel spindles so the bike can't be pushed away.

If in an outside shed use a baby monitor so you can hear if anyone is in the shed.

Alarm your bike store.

Keep helmets separate so they cant use them to ride away.

Avoid having bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at your house.  

When selling a bike - before you show the buyer the bike photograph them and their vehicle. Take a photo of their driving licence.

Remove a wheel spindle and disconnect the spark plug before they arrive.

Do not give any documents until cheque or cash is paid into bank. If the buyer objects - say goodbye.

If possible ask your local police station if you could sell the bike at their premises - crooks will not want to be at a Police Station.

At events - Safety advice. 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.

 

NOTE ON HELMETS - IMPORTANT. Check before you turn up at an event

 

Helmets will only pass scrutineering for racing if they carry an ACU gold sticker attached. (All helmets sold as suitable for "ACU competition" will have the stamp affixed by the dealer.

If your helmet does not have an ACU sticker attached contact the dealer to ask for the sticker. Helmets can be assessed by the ACU or SACU by posting in the helmet and paying a 15 certification fee - which includes return postage.

Helmet or body mounted cameras are prohibited. Cameras may be mounted on the motorcycle.

 

If you want more riding - the North East of England Championship rounds are well worth doing . Enduro and XC. See http://www.enduro-neec.org.uk/ for more info and a calendar.

 

If you find the sport is interesting and would like to ride or assist then contact a club as we are keen to attract new members to the sport.  There is an over 40's class and a Ladies award, so everyone  can get out and ride.

Enduros in Scotland are organised from March to October with events from the Borders to Inverness . All classes of rider are catered for with Expert, Clubman, Sportsman and over 40's classes.

To compete you  need to be a member of a club and either hold an SACU or ACU  licence - or can get a one day licence at the event. You need to send in an entry form prior to the event, entries are available on this site or from the host club.

The aim of Enduro Competition is to complete the course via several checkpoints in a set time. You may not check in early or late without penalty. Generally the top riders go "clean" and the event is then decided on the result of special test times. There will be one or two tests per lap of a Moto-X or cross-country type. For the slower riders there is up to a one hour allowance over the set time for the course to achieve a finish.

Enduros are exactly what they say and even to finish is an achievement. So go on - try an event and get out on the hills. There is no other sport like it.
