TweedLove’s final race of the season saw many of the country’s fastest riders on a course which would have worked well in a one day EWS (should it return!
), with some classic Tweed Valley steep and slippy tracks around Innerleithen mixed in with the best of Glentress. The weather played it right too, with torrential overnight rain clearing to give a warm day of wall to wall sunshine.
It was always going to be tight in the men’s race, with Greg Callaghan beating Mark Scott by just one second over the four stages, in a start list including Scott Laughland, Stuart Wilcox and Chris Ross, who pulled out a top performance to knock last year’s overall winner Chris Ball off the top step in Masters.
Katy Winton dominated every stage in the Senior Women’s race and joined her other half on top of the podium – so cool to see enduro’s mega couple crowned King & Queen of the Hill in front of a big crowd at prize-giving.
The event sold out 500 places in less than two days and is now Scotland’s biggest home-grown enduro race. TweedLove have also promised a big new enduro next May – more news soon.
