- Enduro World series Tweed valley – which trails?
S4 this year was very difficult and a little beyond my skill level and confidence to ride quickly. More death grip braking 🙂 Think Alpine switchbacks but with the trees only a DH bar width apart.
Gary Forest, the eventually winner blitzed through S4 pretty quickly and he’s not in the top 10 of EWS (as far as I know).
I hope there will still be plenty of places for numpties like me to ride the event next year. Will there be separate Pro and Amateur groups? From what I remember a lot of the sponsored pro rideers went early this year i.e 9am start. Maybe earlier.Posted 4 years agoTazSubscriber
There is heaps of very challenging stuff in the area. Some of the trails on Caberston, which I think is where Moseley passed comment on, would challenge most riders to ride flat out, especially if wet (it’s Scotland!!). Lot of variety as well.
Throw in a couple of mid stage climbs / traverses and it will be plenty long enough.
My guess would be if you found last years event technically tough this year will be a step up again (total speculation on my part)Posted 4 years agophatstanleyMember
Steep at Gt isn’t as steep at Inners/Cademuir unless there are super secret trails that I haven’t seen
there’s bits n’ bobs that remain that are fairly steep…Posted 4 years ago
e.g. if you turn right on the forest road after the b!tch, there’s a couple that dip into the trees on the left (one a remnant of an older longer trail, before the last bit of logging…)
