RIDERS from across the world are racing towards the Tweed Valley this weekend for one of the biggest ever celebrations of everything two-wheels.

TweedLoves's Big Weekend promises to be another memorable notch in the progression of this remarkable festival.

More than 70 trade exhibitors and food vendors are setting up stall on Tweed Green.

Some of the biggest names in the sport are gearing up for a crack at the British Enduro Championships.

And hundreds more are looking forward to sampling the Tweed valley trails and roads with supporting events such as Love Cross, Skinny Tweed and Gritopia.

There's even time for the ever-popular Family Ride and an open air cinema on Tweed Green.

While much of the focus of this year's TweedLove is concentrated on the Big Weekend, it would be easy to forget about the build up over the past few weeks.

But coming hot on the heels of last month's Glentress Seven, Glentress Trail Run and Family Day came the G-Form Enjoyro last weekend.

After a hugely successful inaugural event last year, over 250 riders took part in the four-stage race.

The G-Form 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 designed as a taster event for both adults and younger riders, and this year around 70 youngsters under 16 took part.

Confined to Glentress' world-famous trails, the G-Form Enjoyro didn't disappoint.

After an initial climb up Janet's Brae to warm up the legs to the Buzzards Nest car park it was a short spin up to the start of stage one.

Taking in the swooping corners and pumping rollers of Berm Baby Berm and Electric Blue this was a fun yet, eye opening start to the day and saw the fastest riders completing the stage in under four minutes.

An ascent up the Spooky Climb took the riders to Stage Two which started off on the legendary Ho Chi Minh trail.

From the top there were stunning views across the Tweed Valley but riders didn’t have time to take them in as they reached the highest part of the course before dropping into the woods and picking up Zoom or Bust before cutting through the skills area and finishing on the Horse Trail.

Beginning next to the Fala Brae bombhole, freshly worn in by last week’s GT7, the riders picked up their pace on Stage Three along hard packed walkers trails onto Fala Brae proper.

The riders who decided to press on and take on the fourth stage endured the final climb before rolling down the Janet's Brae access road towards the green trails.

Stage Four took in Dave’s trail with tight singletrack, a bombhole, jumps, and step down drops all lying in wait.

Unfortunately one rider took a tumble.

But the attending Tweed Valley Mountain Rescue team were on site within minutes and did a sterling job as usual.

Downpours led to the remaining riders being diverted down a fire road and back to the event village.

Despite the early closure of Stage Four spirits remained high as the podiums were announced and the riders took their hard-earned trophies.

Local knowledge paid off with local riders taking most of the top places – notable results included the father/daughter pairing of Emily Carrick Anderson and dad Crawford, who both took top steps in their categories.

The McGorum sisters, Anna and Elena also both took first place in their age groups.

Cammy Brown, Ruaridh Johnson, Michael Simmonds and Pippa Tanner took the top steps in their categories, completing some superb racing and a great day out.

TweedLove Big Weekend runs from Friday to Sunday.
