Enduro Bon Accord on 23rd September at Drumtochty.
A proper forest Enduro with lost of tracks, trails and climbs and descents. Thanks to the club and Stuart Cooper for all the effort to make the event happen. We do need more riders to support events after all the work the clubs put it in to set the event up. Forestry charges and other costs have increased and we need more entries to make sure the events do not run at a loss. USE IT OR LOSE IT.
Final results- Won by Frazer Norrie ahead of Ben Thomson and Richard Hay in 3rd.

Watch out - thieves about again. There were attempts to steal bikes just after the Glendearg H&H. Luckily they were thwarted - but take care. Again check for trackers on your vehicles and bikes.
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.
At home use a ground or wall anchor and a quality chain. Remove rear wheel spindles and keep in the house. Use a baby monitor if your shed or garage is separate to the house so you can hear any activity.
Avoid having bike specific stickers on your vehicle if it is parked at your house.
The Scottish Borders Enduro Club ran a Charity Hare and Hounds on Sunday 2nd September in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of Craig Nixon.
It was a well supported event with 100 riders entered. The club put on a great course with an "extreme " section to test the riders. The event was dry for the event which allowed the newer riders to get round the course.
A great job by the club and thanks for all their hard work - it was worth it. The club also ran a raffle at the event with a lot of local and distant sponsors contributing a large number of prizes - from goodie bags to sets of tires - very generous . The insurer Sports Insure and the SACU waived the costs for the event so all the money raised goes to the charity.
Thanks to all the riders who turned out on the day to support the event . And as always a thank you to landowner for the use of the ground
Results - . Ben Thomson put in a great 12 laps for the win with Ben Mitchell pushing hard for 2nd with 11 laps - only Mark Ritchie (O 40) and Andrew Currie ( Clubman) also managed 11 laps.

Well done to Stuart Mack on becoming the ACU Clubman Extreme Enduro Champion. All his trials experience was needed in this very demanding sport. As with all British events there is a lot of travelling and effort needed - and also a supportive pit crew.
SACU Enduro Championship a two day event at Dirtbike Evolution's Woodheads track - 5/6th August.
Saturday was a great day out in sunshine on a dry track. Lots of new ground including tracks across the road. The special test was a flier with a lot of effort and tape put in to it. Some tricky off cambers -just it well it wasn't damp - ask Steven Currie about that !!
Fraser Flockhart was flying with Andrew Bisset in close pursuit with Ben Thomson charging hard in 3rd. And Fraser was on top form on Sunday to lead them home with Andrew and Ben chasing.
Thanks to Stevie and the crew at DBE for a fantastic weekend - shame more riders didn't turn up. Use it or lose it
Check out for full results for Saturday and Sunday.

SACU LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.
Congratulations to Jim and Linda Ballantyne on receiving their SACU Lifetime Achievement Award. Long overdue they were presented with their award at the recent Heriot Enduro.
After many years riding trials and ISDT's Jim also road in Enduros and has been a staunch supporter of the ISDE. Jim and Linda have been to many of these events supporting the riders in all conditions - hot and cold. Jim is also a great fund raiser for the ISDE Team providing support for the team out of his own expenses and selling T shirts and other items.
A regular at most events Jim and Linda (along with John Little and Eileen) man checks at far flung parts of the course - offering encouragement and advice to riders as they pass through.
Currently the Enduro Chairman (again) he speaks up on our behalf at management and other meetings to ensure the sport gets the recognition it deserves.
Thanks to Jim and Linda for their years of service.
Jim and Linda at the time check in Sardina in 2013 - very hot and very dusty.

A great event with perfect weather - hot and sunny with even a pool to cool down in. Well done to Clerk of the Course Jim Dodds and Mark Ritchie and Amanda and all the other helpers who put on a perfect days racing.
A big event benefitting from a Langdale event being cancelled - great job by the club to accommodate the late entries.
The sand quarry always sort them out to start - and then its a blast across the moors to a few wee bogs then a blast back and up the hills before another bit of sand and the beach - and do it all again.

Red Bull Erzberg Rodeo 2018
Congratulations to Graham Jarvis on winning the Red Bull Erzberg Rodeo - an amazing win to overhaul the leaders at Green Hell and literally push on for the win. With Jonny Walker in 3rd and Mathius Lettenbichler in 3rd. Real enduro spirt with riders helping each other at the toughest bit - even when it means losing places. See for the video replay.
ACU British Enduro Championship at Dirt Bike Evolution on 26/27 May 2018 at the Thirlestane course .
Report on and results
Danny McCanney wins both days of the new ACU Championship round at Lauder with Tom Sagar a consistent second.
A big thank you to Stevie Currie and his great team for a fantastic event and their first BEC round. With sun both days it was a hot day out but the riders had a chance to cool off in the river test and then have a nice mud bath to finish.
The course followed a route through the forest , across some brash then steep hills and descents before arriving at the out check. A quick run down another steep forest track to the first test - a cross country blast and back along and across a river to wash of the dust.
The second test started with a flat out blast up the hill followed by an MX style off camber descent down the hill - followed by a narrow gully and river crossing the a blast back to the finish. The back to the pits and do it all again.
Ceud Mille Failte - come back soon.
Championship Enduro 20th MAY at Bon Accord Craiglash
A great event with lots of new tracks and a new test. Thanks to Stewart Cooper and the team.
Some new faces at the event - good to see new young riders getting round so well.
The club marshals looked very efficient in their new red bibs - keeping the spectators and riders safe. The course was the usual mix of woods with off camber hills and the odd wee rock to catch out the unwary. Never an easy course but a rewarding one
The Experts was won by a flying Fraser Flockhart on the Yamaha - with Andrew Bisset close in 2nd. Fergus Lamb was looking good for 3rd but a big off put paid to his day.
Sean Mackay took the clubman class win closely followed by Jamie Black and Andrew Currie in 3rd
In the Over 50's Andrew Maben continues to excel but was only 6 seconds ahead of Neil McGregor with Davie Hill always a threat in 3rd
Max Hamilton lead the Sportsman home ahead of Alistair McGowan with Iain Henderson in 3rd
Sportsman was won by Sandy Milne with Neil G Alexander in 2nd and George Mcbeth in 3rd.

Dirt Bike Evolution Enduro on 22nd April at Woodheads near Lauder. Round 3 SACU Enduro Championship.
A dull but mostly dry day for the newest venue in the calendar. Clerk of the course Steven Currie and his team did a great job to get a 10 mile lap on farmland, forest and the odd wee muddy bit ready in time.
With over 100 riders it kept the check and timing crews busy all day. The tight and twisting woodland test providing a challenge with the constant change of direction.
A new feature was the "Lauder Car Wash" - a deep gully leading to a nice bog on exit. Great fun to watch .
Provisional results - . Expert Class won by a flying Fraser Flockhart hard pushed all day by Andrew Bisset.
SACU Enduro Championship EEC 2 day at Lossiemouth
Results Saturday .
Results Sunday .
Frazer Norrie was in fine form winning both days - with a close battle with Fraser Flockhart on his Yamaha.
In the Clubman B Angus Bruce finished his first Enduro winning both days to set up an exciting season.
Another great event from EEC and a big thank you to the club - with Kevin adding lots of new ground and Barry his usual efficient self (But he should really be resting !) And Francis running the checks and keeping everyone in order.
And a great big thank you to the new timing team of Mitch, Alan, John and Kirsty . No errors or missed times over both days - despite the riders best efforts. This year we saw a white front plate (vaguely pink) with white numbers and another rider with white numbers on a yellow plate - give us some help and make your numbers easy to read as you ride past.
