And with everything still to ride for Scottish motocross chairman Rab Duncan is looking forward to Sunday's round at Langtonlees: "It has been a very competitive championship so far, there's no one running

away with it," he said.

Owned and run by David Macvie, the Langton Lees track has a wide range of humps, bumps and jumps, all of which are man made; including doubles, table tops, plateau jumps, drop offs, step ups, speed jumps, rollers and a whoops section, and hosted a round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship in May.

"The Langtonlees track is absolutely superb," Rab insisted. "It's perhaps a bit short of water at the moment, David tells me there hasn't been any real rain there since about April! I'm hoping for a bit of rain over night as it saves a lot of work watering.

"But it's a first class track - probably the best in Scotland. David has worked very hard on it."

With the Scottish championship in town, Rab is hoping for a good turnout. "It's very colourful, very exciting, you're right next to the action and it's very competitive," he said. "I'm hoping to see a good crowd."
