The first race event of the three day long TweedLove on the Green Festival.
A brand new, fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious.
(Or those with not enough time for a full on enduro weekend.)
Welcome to our new introductory-level enduro race (introduro anyone?), designed to provide a sweet way in to the joy of enduro racing. This is the all-new G-Form Enjoyro.
Enjoyro is for have-a-go enduro riders who might feel slightly intimidated by the perceived commitment, technical difficulty or length of normal enduro races. It's intended as a taster event for both adults and younger riders (age 12 and older*).
The course has been carefully chosen with this in mind, using enjoyable, flowy sections of blue and red trails in Glentress and a few natural sections too.
It's a good bit shorter than our Triple Crown enduro courses, and technically straightforward so no official practice is scheduled. All the trails are readily accessible and will generally be familiar to those who have ridden at Glentress before. The course will be published in advance too, so riders will have a good idea of what to expect.
But the fun factor will still be turned up to full volume, with the start and finish in the heart of the TweedLove on the Green event village - right in the heart of all the Bike Festival action. The race also uses TweedLove's enduro SI Entries timing system, with stages all fully taped, timed, marshalled and set up to our full enduro quality control.
It's a proper enduro race course, just a bit and shorter and easier than usual. Prizes for various categories will be detailed in the riders notes, but spot prizes and a sense of enduro brother-and-sister-hood will be the order of the day.
The course starts at the TweedLove Event Village and will give the legs a suitable warm-up going up Janet's Brae into Glentress, where it climbs a bit further (but not too far!) for three race stages, which are all descents. Riders will finish the course near the Glentress Peel Cafe, and then ride back to Peebles via the multi-use Tweed Railway path. Overall the course will be under 20km with under 400m of up and down to pedal.

A brand new way to race - for children age 12 or 13 riding with a responsible adult. Racing one after the other, both riders will have a timing chip and receive their own race times. Combined times will be available, but the final race results are for individual riders just like a normal enduro. The entry fee covers both riders.
