There’s so much happening in the two weeks of TweedLove 2014 (most notably the first UK round of the Enduro World Series) we’re adding this as an extra weekend of summer enduro race action on August 23-24.

The race will use some of the valley’s finest trails, with stages likely to include parts of the Enduro World Series course, we’re aiming to make this Scotland’s finest, most enjoyable and best value homegrown enduro. This is a big, one-off belter of a race to decide who will wear the crowns as Scottish Open Champions for 2014. The course makes the most of the massive variety of trail riding here, with the sweetest descents on man-made trails, through to steeper technical trails on the valley’s finest natural dirt, roots and rock.

There’s no doubt that Enduro is the most talked-about thing in mountain biking right now. With the bikes getting better, lighter and more capable every year, this is what riding is all about for a lot of people: pedal up a nice trail with your mates and then hammer back down as fast as you can. In 2013, the King and Queen was Scotland’s most popular enduro and one of the biggest in the UK . For 2014 it’ll have the same buzzing Peebles town centre event HQ and we’re planning to have even better riding than we had this year – the number one course priority is quality trail riding, and the overall ethos for the event is to provide a physically challenging, fun race with good times and safety the key factors.

PLEASE NOTE: THE TWEEDLOVE ENDURO WORLD SERIES RACE WILL OPEN FOR ENTRIES IN FEBRUARY. SIGN UP FOR TWEEDLOVE EMAIL UPDATES TO RECEIVE ALL THE INFO.

The King & Queen of the Hill is held on Forestry Commission Scotland’s Forest trails. Start and finish in the centre of Peebles.
