The Tweedlove festival is taking place right now in and around the Tweed Valley in Scotland – it’s a 10 day celebration of cycling with a heavy slant towards mountain biking. The POC sponsored King and Queen of the Hill enduro race took place over the weekend with local pinner Gary Forrest taking the men’s and Emma Guy taking the women’s.
The men’s podium was rounded out by Enduro World Series organiser Chris Ball in the runners-up spot and ex=pro downhiller Crawford Carrick-Anderson in third (who happened to be celebrating his 43rd birthday – still going strong then). Katy Winton and Lesley Ingram both rode strongly to finish second and third respectively in the women’s race, with Katy only a few seconds down on Emma Guy’s winning time.
Full results can be found here.
Tweedlove is running right up to next Sunday 2nd June, so click over to the event website to find out about the many events taking place and just why you should make the trip for an event you won’t forget.
The British Downhill Series race next weekend promises to be packed with big name riders on their way to the Fort William World Cup event the following weekend – a great opportunity to see the world’s fastest racing first-hand and get some trail miles in yourself.
