Trail Perfection along with the Trailfairies were busy building sections of the course for the first Glentress & endurance race and supporting Neil Dalgleish on the day of the event. Its fair to say the event was a great success and we're stoked here at Trail Perfection with the brilliant feedback from competitors on the course and the event itself. Here's some of the best.......
"I knew it would be good but I was completely blown away by the course. Steep and long climbs. Brilliant singletrack. And loads of uber techy off piste descents that had been built especially for the race. This was the best endurance course I’ve ever ridden in fact. It was never going to be a pure fitness fest and this is one of the main reasons I love coming over the border. Health and Safety doesn’t travel this far north. They build courses to test mountain bikers in Scotland. The main descent would have fitted well into a pure DH course in fact". (Rich Rothwell - Winner GT7 - 2011)
"I thought it was the best mtb enduro course I have ridden and that’s comparing it to Wiggle enduro 6, SITS, Mountain Mayhem and various others."
"It was the best mtb enduro course I have ridden in my view and I’ve ridden endurance at a range of races, Eastnor, Sandwell, Trentham, Catton Park, Kirroughtree and Nevis Range."
"Compared with10UTB the climbs were more interesting, the descents more varied and better built
It was a superb course indeed!"
"Great course, which stood up very well to the weather and the Trailfairies should be especially proud of themselves. Already looking forward to next year's course!"
"Well done everyone at TweedLove for organising such a great event yesterday. Very professional and friendly and great course too!"
We will be supporting Neil again next year and event and planning has already kicked off. Be sure to check out the TweedLove website for the latest news http://tweedlove.com
