Pirelli TweedLove ProAm – British Champs 2022

Chain Reaction TweedLove Festival's big enduro - the Pirelli TweedLove ProAm. Undoubtedly one of the biggest and most sought after enduros in the UK calendar, this year it is also Round Six (the final, deciding round) of the British National Enduro Series and the British Enduro Championships 2022.

Pirelli TweedLove ProAm  – British Enduro Championships 2022: three days of riding (practice Friday/Saturday, race day Sunday). The course will be kept under wraps until the event but, as always, you can expect a top-notch mix of great Tweed Valley trails – a pro-level race course and event. You definitely don’t have to be a pro rider to take part, but this is a high standard race for experienced riders, so you can expect appropriate levels of physical and technical challenge.

(Please Note that there is no E3 category youth class. The Pirelli TweedLove ProAm – Amateur 2022 is its replacement.)

Depending on how you want to enjoy your race day, you can choose to be seeded or not…

Seeded (Full Course) 

If you opt to be seeded you will be given start times for every stage of the race. You must complete all the race stages, and stick to the stage start schedule you’re given at registration. If seeded riders miss their start time they will be slotted in at the start marshals discretion. There are no time penalties for missing your stage start times BUT there is an overall course completion time and penalties apply if you don’t make this.

Choose this if you’re fast and if you want to minimise chance of encountering traffic while on the race course, with no uncertain queuing at stage starts, but be aware you might not be able to spend race day riding with your mates. You will need to select the seeded option if you wish to be included in the BNES series.

Non-Seeded (Full Course) 

Choose to be non-seeded if your priority is to ride with your mates. You’ll need to sign up with the same group name so you all get the same start waves. You are still given guide times to start each stage, and there’s an overall course completion time – penalties apply if you don’t make it. There’s more chance of being before or after a rider who is considerably faster or slower than you, but with less stress on the transition times, it’s a more sociable choice for many.

Short Course – E3

There will not be a short course version of this event — we have decided to give you your own race. If you would normally enter the E3 category please enter the Pirelli TweedLove ProAm – Amateur. This course will incorporate some of the stages from the British Championship course as well as some other stages.

eMTB Info

Battery Rules

For both ProAm races we’ll now have two different categories regarding battery choice:

  • B1 means you complete the whole course on just one battery, so for some riders battery management will be a consideration
  • B2 means you can use extra batteries but you have to carry them with you. Due to the course routes involved, there is no mid-course return to base possible.

The full BEMBA British Enduro Champs course. The race categories are as follows:

  • Male B1 (one battery)
  • Male B2 (two or more batteries)
  • Female B1 (one battery)
  • Female B2 (two or more batteries)
  • Seeded (E1) and non-seeded (E2) starts are available.  All riders will ride the same enduro course, so there are no additional stages for eMTB riders.

Please note, as things currently stand eMTB category winners will not be recognised as BEMBA British Champions. These categories are included to allow eMTB riders to race the full British Champs enduro, but there is currently no recognised BEMBA eMTB Enduro National Championships Race. (Stay tuned though!)

The majority of eMTB riders will be able to complete the course on one battery.

Please note, if there are less than five riders in one of the battery categories, it may be combined with the other. Likewise if there are a significant number of EMTB entries, we may add separate age categories.
