POC Scottish Enduro
The POC Scottish Enduro Series Ambassadors are a key element in the continuation and development of Enduro in Scotland - giving participants across all of the categories an opportunity to contribute and discuss their experiences using this conduit between organisers and riders.
Frazer Coupland said “We were delighted that in 2016 the experienced Ambassadors, were able to make a meaningful and important contribution to the series and in turn the future development of racing in Scotland. By having ambassadors, all riders had access them, out on the course - to ride with, to discuss and share their thoughts on the way the event and the series was running and is evolving - individuals will have an opportunity to reflect on their interests and abilities, and we will get first hand feedback from the experts on the ground.”
Spook Munro from the series said “Whilst we think we know what the riders want, we need to listen and we constantly need to try and improve. The competition is not between the organizer and the rider, it between the riders.”
With this in mind it is hoped that all participants will take time to engage with Ambassadors, whether it be to ask for advice, give feedback or just for a bit of “craic and banter”. The Series Ambassadors will promote Scottish Enduro, and motivate and inspire other people to get involved in enduro whilst racing, riding and enjoying doing something that we love, riding our bikes.

My name is Louise Ferguson, I am 20 years old and live in Fort William. Mountain biking is what gets me through my studies and takes me to some amazing places. I love a good natural trail and hope to one day master being in the air. The steed of choice is an indestructible Trek remedy 8. I'm always up for a chat, usually seen from afar by my wild hair so please feel free to say hi next time I'm passing.
My name is Gary Forrest and Ive been riding bikes for 17 years. Started off just playing in the woods with my pals doing skids and turn bars, and just progressed from there to racing DH world cups and now EWS. I'm now eligible to race in the Master category which is crazy as I use to slag the old boys off. Can't wait to get stuck in to the SES this year.
