British Sprint Enduro Championship
Black Dog Wood
The penultimate round of the 2014 British Sprint Enduro Championship  got off to a slow start at the ambulance was held up in traffic but the weather was glorious and everyone made the most of the Summer sun. The lap consisted of a stubble field and long woodland stage through Black Dog Woods. Most of the riders walked the course through the trees which is a popular pastime with the locals - if fact the area has quite a doggy reputation. The field were given 2 sighting laps to pass the time although most of the test pilots should have been given a cooling glass of camomile tea before they started. At noon the ambulance arrived and the racing began. The planned schedule of 10 laps was cut to 6 with a back to back final for the Elites. Danny McCanney (Beta 300) was in great form and he won the first 6 test before he coasted home on the last heat in 3rd to win with a 30 second margin. Jamie McCanney was clearly his brother's time keeper and Jamie pushed Danny hard over the first 4 heats but he crashed on the 5th lap and dropped 30 seconds. Despite a bruised thigh he made up time on the last 2 test but he had to settle for 2nd. Steve Holcombe improved all day and he finished 3rd. Jamie Lewis stayed with Steve and he managed a 4th on a course that really did not suit him. Tom Sagar was riding a KTM 300 2T. Whether or not the bike suited him is difficult to say. He finished 5th. Birthday Boy Josh Gotts (TM) took home a nicely wrapped parcel of maximum points in the Under 23 class. Joe Wootton was the best Under 19. 
Day 2.
After an uncertain start Steve Holcombe earned his first BESC overall win. Danny McCanney crashed on his 4th lap but he carried on to take 2nd and secure the Championship. Tom Sagar returned to his KTM 450 and he finished 3rd. Daryl Bolter was 4th. Jamie Lewis's reservations about Black Dog Wood proved to be well founded as he crashed on his 4th lap and injured his leg. A tough season for Jamie McCanney continued with a dislocated shoulder on the last lap. Rob Johnson (MPS Racing) was the best Under 23,
Fraser Flockart was the runner up and Josh Gotts (TM) was 3rd. Robin Wiss aggravated an existing knee injury and he was forced to retire. Brad Freeman (Colwyn Bay KTM) won the Under 19 class ahead of Joe Wootton and Lee Sealey  Charlie Frost and Aaron Edwards retired. Jack Staines was the best 125 Youth rider. 15 year old Alex Walton was 2nd and Robbie Wallace was 3rd. Carl Brogden (TM) won the Expert  2nd Charlie Evans and 3rd Sean Eckersley, Andrew Reeves was the best Expert Vet, Simon Ellway Club Vet. Tom Ellwood won the Clubman class. Greg Hurley snapped his bars. Jane Daniels was the best woman and Katie Walker was runner up Results  Round 9 Round 10

SEEC Hare n Hounds 
Embley Wood 
Hosted by Carshalton MCC

Report Rich Troth

It’s been a long time since Embley Wood was used for an Enduro, a pure forest event in perfect conditions albeit a tad small in length hence why only 80 riders but what Carshalton did do was make a cracking loop with no stoppers or hazards that was enjoyed by all.

Championship Class
Was great to see James Jackman riding in the SEEC again and it was not long before we realised he has not lost any of his magic, despite a few early bar to bar duelling with Phil Wiffen it wasn’t long before Jacko took control and took victory by over a lap with 26 laps completed, runner up Phil Wiffen did all he could to keep Jacko in his sights but credit to Phil he is still carrying an injury, Si Beken 3rd on a track he seemed very at home on, 4th on equal laps as Beken was Jason Bowen who had to work so hard on the little 2T to get momentum to pass slower riders on the single track areas.
