What a day! What a fortnight! The Tweedlove Festival is well & truly on the map of world cycling now.
For many, the highlight of the Festival is The Enduro World Series Race. Held over 2 days, some 600+ riders tackle downhill stages based around the Tweed Valley. Day 1 was in Innerleithen (Inners) and Day 2 was in Glentress. Day 1 was raced off in glorious sunshine but Day 2 was supposed to be a different scenario! The weather forecast indicated rain & very high winds. The organisers decided early on Sunday morning to shorten Day 2 to just 2 stages. Needless to say, the predicted weather didn't hit but its better to put the safety of the riders, the spectators and volunteers first!
The racing was excellent with some fantastic talent on show and the huge crowd that built up during the day were certainly entertained.
Roll on Tweedlove 2016. I just wonder what the organisers have up their sleeves...
