The iconic Tweed Valley raised more than a few eyebrows when it hosted its first Enduro World Series last year. With famous venues like Glentress and Innerleithen in the mix, riders thought they knew what to expect – but they hadn’t banked on the area’s best kept secret - a huge network of natural trails that criss-cross a vast area - pushing even the top riders to their limits. Expect more of the same this year – two days of racing with no lifts and lot of miles in the legs, not to mention some of the gnarliest locals you’ll ever meet.
