The Bosch eMTB Challenge supported by Trek

Europe’s most exciting e-bike adventure comes to the UK for the first time. Top trail riding and uphill flow climbing stages combine with enduro style on a big e-xploration of the Tweed Valley trails. Along the way you’ll navigate your way through local landmarks, classic trails and a specially prepared lunch stop. E-bike adventure has arrived in the Tweed Valley – big style.

 

The Bosch eMTB Challenge supported by Trek is an event of impressive variety. You’ll cover around 30 kilometres, and have around 1,000 metres of climbing to contend with. The course, a mix of uphill and downhill timed (enduro style) stages with orienteering transfer liaisons in between. It’s a real voyage of discovery – uphill racing, riding techniques, orientation skills, fitness and smart battery management* are key to your success.  The enemy? Time itself.

On the individual stages you’re against the clock, without any prior practice (it’s all ‘blind’ racing), and during the transfer stages emphasis is on finding your way around the route. You’ll need to check-in at various orientation points along the route, using the map we provide. Miss one and you’ll earn a 10-second time penalty.  Don’t rack up too many because the winner is the fastest overall time on the day. Look out for the Schwalbe Eddy Current climbing stage, a techy climb that will have you working hard even on the e-bike. The climbing stages will also feature a “no feet” zone, keep those feet up and don’t dab and you’ll avoid a 10 second penalty.

The trails are designed for all levels of experience, whether you are a high-end professional or an e-bike newbie.  Just choose from the three different categories; Advanced, Amateur and Explorer. The Explorer category doesn’t even have to do the race stages – you can just enjoy the journey round the valley.

And once you’ve navigated your way back to base at Transcend Festival you can enjoy a cold beer and soak up the festival vibes all evening long.

*you should comfortably be able to complete the course with 1 fully charged battery – used wisely!

Transcenduro Boost

A slightly lighter helping of enduro, but still with all the flavour. You should get round the whole thing in 3-4 hours so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the Transcend Festival. If you’ve had a bigger day or night on Saturday you can still race on Sunday without worrying you’ll be biting down on a full scale Tweed Valley enduro.

Enjoyro

A fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious, younger riders – or just those with not enough time for a full on enduro weekend. Or even if you just fancy a good day of enduro fun.

Welcome to the third year of our introductory-level enduro race, designed to provide a sweet way in to the joy of enduro racing. This is Enjoyro!

This year we’re moving to Innerleithen as part of the Transcend Bike Festival.  – more bikes + more activities = more fun.

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 also intended as a taster event for both adults and younger riders (age 12 and older*). Don’t worry if you spot people taking part who looks like they’re very experienced enduro types – chances are they’re accompanying one of the kids or a less experienced enduropal™. They’re not there to hunt you down (unless they’re your own off-spring perhaps).

End: June 9, 2019 5:00 pm
Venue: Innerleithen
