Enduro World Series hits Innerleithen & Peebles

Enduro World Series

The UK’s first ever Enduro World Series is one of the most hotly anticipated mountain bike races of 2014. With two days of trail racing on stages around Innerleithen & Peebles in the Scottish Borders’ Tweed Valley, this event aims to be tough, but a lot of fun, with the emphasis on great riding and quality trails.

Fresh from Stage 1 in Chile, the Enduro World Series sees riders compete in the hills around Innerleithen & Peebles in what is the biggest mountain bike competition in the world as part of the Tweedlove festival fortnight. Enduro is different from other mountain biking races in that it includes timed downhills and untimed uphills. Racing is over a series of special stages and whoever has the fastest combined time after those stages wins. Riders need to get between the stages, often for a set start time. This is where it’s novelty comes in as competitors have to be both Jedi downhill racers as well as uber fit to get to the top of the hills.
