Whyte British Enduro Championships heads to the Tweed Valley in 2018

Organisers of TweedLove bike festival have today announced they will be hosting the British Enduro Championship's up in the Tweed Valley, Scotland in 2018!
It has been pretty hard to keep a lid on this news recently... But the 2018 British Enduro Championships will be held, right here, in the Tweed Valley, with UK success story Whyte Bikes as the title sponsors.
The British Enduro Mountain Bike Association (BEMBA) organisers have agreed that the British Champs will move around the ‘home nations’ annually, giving different venues and organisers the opportunity to showcase their trails and race production. We’re proud to announce that Scotland and TweedLove will be hosts for 2018, and we’re already working with forestry officials and landowners on a course which we hope will showcase the best riding in the valley, with stages befitting of a classic British Champs race.
The race will be held over the weekend 9-10 June and is timed to coincide with the big TweedLove bike festival weekend, so it’s going to be a real celebration of trail riding in what we believe is the spiritual home of UK enduro.
A British brand supporting a huge British event!
Whyte Bikes were “our natural choice” to be headline sponsors. Whyte Bikes’ success over the last few years has been incredibly impressive and we’ve enjoyed working positively with them in the past. Their bikes demonstrate how well they understand riders’ needs in this country - we’re proud to have such an awesome British brand as title sponsor.
Guy Farrant, managing director of Whyte Bikes said: “Whyte are delighted to support the 2018 BEMBA British Enduro Championships as title partner. Having worked with Neil on TweedLove we know his events are always well organised with a great vibe. We enjoy supporting enduro racing as it’s both competitive and fun - as well as a perfect showcase for our UK developed bikes. This Championship event will see the weekend warrior rubbing shoulders with pro-elite sponsored riders and is set to be the highlight of the UK season.”
Tweed Valley enduro races are already amongst the most popular in the country, with TweedLove’s Triple Crown series the best attended enduro series in the UK for the last two years. We already have bags full of useful experience of creating and managing some of the country’s biggest mountain bike events, including hosting the UK’s only two visits of the Enduro World Series - we’ll be pulling out all the stops to make sure it’s worthy of becoming the most significant Championship in British mountain bike racing.
Entry details coming soon - Keep your eyes peeled on the TweedLove website.
