Racing and training in Europe is hard to beat, but everyone has that one local trail that no matter where you have been, you look forward to returning home and getting out on. Gaining momentum through his race season and competing in the European round of the Enduro World Series, Scott Laughland returns home to ride his local trails after finishing in 6th place at the Ischgl European Open, Austria. Filmed by Dominic Simmons on a crisp autumn day, the trails were dry and the sun was shining, perfect conditions to ride flat out.

After completing a 5 year University degree in Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Scott now plans to switch his focus to Enduro racing for 2014 where the goal is to be competitive in the World Enduro Series.

Some of the hills around the Central Belt of Scotland and Stirling are pretty impressive Dumyat being one of them. It also happens to have to a great piece of single-track running right from the summit.

Scott dropping in on the last open section of trail before heading into the woods.

A quick shot of Scott as we take a breather at the reservoir half way through shooting.

Filmed and edited by Dominic Simmons at Dumyat near Stirling, Scotland this is a fantastic example of having a great little loop to ride straight from home!

Scott wishes to thanks his sponsors from the 2013 season; Cube Bikes, Troy Lee Designs, Mojo/Fox, SRAM, Renthal, Gamut, crankbrothers, Ryno Power and Robin Ruth UK.
