TweedLove, the ten day Bike Festival set in the very bike-friendly Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders, has just announced a major new all-mountain enduro race to be staged at Forestry Commission Scotland’s Glentress on 27 May 2012.
In a new take on the gravity enduro format The King and Queen of the Hill, the first UK event to be sponsored by Swedish kit brand POC, will see riders compete to be crowned the ‘official ruler’ of Glentress, widely recognised as Britain’s best trail centre.
The course will take riders to near the very top of Glentress Forest’s big hill, and then right back down again, by way of a series of timed race and linking stages, with riders required to have at least one uphill stage included in their overall points score. The King and Queen of the Hill also features a massive final descent stage, running from near Spooky Wood all the way back down to Peebles, with a big proportion of natural trails along the route.
Entries for the race are now open on the TweedLove website - www.tweedlove.com - which has more info on the race and the whole TweedLove programme – ten days of good times on and off the bike.
