About the Glentress Seven
The Glentress Seven is TweedLove’s flagship endurance mountain bike event. As Glentress is generally recognised as Britain’s best trail centre, this event aims to provide a great day’s riding and racing for everyone, with the emphasis on great trails and a friendly atmosphere.
Expect some nice climbs, fantastic singletrack, great descents and a whole lot of fun – you can go as hard, or easy, as you like.
TweedLove is a week of bike-related events in the Tweed Valley, with many miles of great riding to be done and some cracking social events all week.
A seven hour race - how it works
The aim is to complete as many laps as you can in the seven hour time limit. Teams ride in relay – there’s only one team member on the course at any one time. Timing is via an electronic chip which is worn round the ankle. When a rider crosses the timing mat at the end of a lap their time is recorded, and they then pass the chip onto the next team member and so on.
Riders can do as many laps as they want/can manage in the time. The transition/timing/ team change-over area is in the event village. The course is marked out all the way round and there are marshals at all key positions.
Riders can go as hard or easy as they like, and there’s always the lure of a nice cake and a bit of a social down at the event village.
The race starts at 10am on Saturday 24 May. You must register beforehand (or the evening before) to collect your race number and course information. Full info available on event website a few weeks before race day, and all details will also be sent to entrants as a pdf download.
