Innerleithen MTB Racing have just announced their Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series, with dates and venues as follows:
Weekend 2nd/3rd February Alpine Bikes Innerduro Race 1 - Multi-Stage Enduro
Saturday 2nd March Alpine Bikes Innerduro Race 2 - Multi-Stage Day/Night Enduro
Weekend 30th/31st March Alpine Bikes Innerduro Race 3 - Multi-Stage Enduro
All events will be held within Traquair Forest, Innerleithen.
This is what they have to say about the series:
Following the success of last year's partnership, Innerleithen MTB Racing and Alpine Bikes are delighted to again be working together to bring you the 2013 Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series. This year’s series focuses on multi-stage races in recognition of feedback from riders. The Series consists of three races through February and March with prizes in various categories for individual races as well as the overall series.
The first Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series race on the first weekend of February is a Multi-Stage Enduro comprised of a number of special timed stages on the Sunday, with practice allowed on the Saturday afternoon. This is a relaxed event where competitors ride between stages with their mates, swapping stories of the stage just completed and those yet to come. Special stages are mainly downhill XC routes, with some climbing included.
Winter in Innerleithen could give us anything from glorious sunshine to drifting snow, so good tyre choice will be essential.
Early March sees race two in the Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series – a Multi-Stage Day/Night Enduro. A similar relaxed atmosphere to Race One is expected, but this time the special stages will be raced at night, as well as by day.
The final race in the Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series will be a similar format to Race One, but will use completely different trails. Practice on the Saturday will be followed by race runs on Sunday. This prize giving will include the award of the overall Alpine Bikes Innerduro Series Champion.
