The Tweedlove sprint is fast and furious street racing for a summer evening. It will be held on 29 May in Peebles and it’s really three events in one.
First the family event (and anyone with a bike who wants to join in riding round the course for a ‘victory’ lap), then a full-on women’s race, before the headline men’s racing kicks off. The circuit is short and spectacular, with high speeds and tricky corners for the top riders with big crowds and a party atmosphere to shout them on. It’s run as a Belgian-style Kermesse event, with lots of local community involvement.
This year a women’s race is included, at 7pm. Open to all women aged over 16, the race will last 30 minutes plus three laps. The winner will take away a cash prize of £50, second place £30 and third place £20.
It will be a great intro to crit racing for all women!
