No time to dither as event sells out in just one hour…
TweedLove sold out all 600 spaces for its round of the Enduro World Series in just one hour – breaking all previous EWS records.
The first ever UK round of the series has attracted entrants from as far afield as Japan, Samoa, Israel and New Zealand. And the unprecedented demand means there are already 120 names on the waiting list for the event.
Racers will compete on amazing new trails against legends of the sport such as Steve Peat, Dan Atherton, Fabien Barel and current EWS champions Tracy Moseley and Jerome Clementz
But TweedLove organiser Neil Dalgleish is encouraging those who missed out on a spot to still come and support the race.
“We can’t believe the response – it’s been overwhelming. We knew the race would be popular, but to sell out all 600 spots in an hour is amazing.
“It’s going to be a great race and even if people didn’t manage to get an entry they should still head up to watch this incredible race and sample some of the trails.”
Chris Ball, Managing Director of the Enduro World Series added: “We expected the UK to prove a popular venue, but we were blown away by the demand. There’s a really strong enduro community in the UK and that coupled with the amazing riding in the Tweed Valley should make for an unbelievable race.”
