Entries open this week for the UK's biggest enduro race, the Tweedlove World Enduro.
Public entries for the race, which is the second in the Enduro World Series calendar, open this Wednesday. Despite 600 public places being up for grabs, the event is expected to sell out in minutes.
Taking place over the weekend of 31 May, the race forms part of the TweedLove bike festival. Riders will follow a course that visits both Glentress and Innerleithen among many natural highlights around the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders.
Racers will be divided into two categories – enduro 1 and enduro 2. The former is subject to testing transitions/linking stage times, designed to provide a challenge for even the best riders. Participants in the enduro 2 category will have a little more margin for transitions but will still face a tough schedule.
Entries open at 5pm GMT on Wednesday, February 19, through the Enduro World Series website.
