Looks like only seven riders made the day on time. Dougie has 7 points for the trial, plus 8 penalty points. Not bad for the bikes first Scottish. Rain, sleet, and snow made fore a miserable day.

Good read on a U.S. Rider I know that did it "Gary Lawver". I believe he rides Expert Support. (Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong.)

We have several riders in our club that has finished it. A good sportsman rider that rides the Nationals could do it. But six days of riding, and each day is more riding than most have ever done. The weather, like yesterday would be brutal. You actually need a buddy that`s been there done that, to get you through to the end.

I watched some of the video. How do they score those sections?

While watching all I could think of was a Mike Rowe quote; "what fresh hell is this?"

Most of them wait all year and use there vacation time for the abuse. The Scottish is over 100 years plus.

Nice bike for sure. This was the goal. Dougie also won it on one of those POS unreliable GG's last year, so it MUST be the rider. I guess he prefers light bikes!

Seems Beta is the clear leader in the over all bike share. Lots of them! Must be a good bike or something. I haven't seen a TR34 yet though!

The only American this year is Dennis Sweeten on a Montesa of course. He`s currently in 146th place. That just shows how tough the Scottish is as Dennis is a very good rider.
