Moseley, Winton and Buchanan make it happen in Scotland
The Tweed Valley is what many consider to be the heart of the Scottish mountain biking scene. Hosting events for numerous years, the area is home to the famed Tweedlove mountain biking festival. This year’s Tweedlove enduro event brought big names from the Enduro World Series, and stoked the competitive fires of Scottish riders who call the Tweed Valley home.
The women’s race was won by none other than MTB luminary Tracy Moseley, who took the top spot by 59 seconds over Katy Winton. The podium was rounded out by Andreana Nadeau. The race according to Katy Winton,
"Tweedlove is always a fun event bringing our bike mad community together! It's a hectic week for me and my prep wasn't quite on point and came into the weekend tired. Had a great time on my home trails but just didn't have the energy I wanted to. I put down everything I had and stoked to come away with 2nd after a close battle with Andréane Lanthier Nadeau."
The men’s race race saw an incredibly tight podium. Lewis Buchanan took third to race winner Callaghan by 15 seconds, and was a mere 2 seconds behind second place finisher Scott. From Lewis,
"Rounding out the podium in 3rd is a good step for me. I started of the day perfectly winning stage 1 & got a buffer of 6 seconds to be in the lead until stage 3. It was a pretty long and physical stage and I just don't think I had it in the legs on the day. Each race is a learning experience and I can take a lot of positives away from this race and apply for the next one. I feel like I'm riding really well this year so my confidence is high. Thanks to Ray for keeping the bike running great & the home town crowd for all the support."
