Transcend Epic 2019

Two big days racing on sweet Tweed Valley dirt, with uplift and shuttles all day and a proper bike festival to come back to at night.

A two day trans-valley enduro adventure. Registration and rider briefing Friday 7 June 2019. Shuttles and riding start Saturday morning.

The UK’s first two day, multi venue, uplift-served enduro adventure. Over two days you’ll ride thousands of metres of descent on some of the best enduro terrain in the country, on a trip taking you the length of the Tweed Valley forest park, and back again.

A mixture of Adrenalin Uplift vehicle transport and pedalling will allow for way more, like waaaay more, distance and vertical than you would normally do in an enduro format, and race stages will include some ‘adventure’ stages as well as the sweet, fully taped race stages our events are renowned for.

There’s no practice, just two days of full-on quality shredding and adventure with a bunch of like-minded riders. With the distances and travel involved into some more remote spots, some emphasis on the enduro spirits of independence and looking out for each other is encouraged as you travel through the valley forests and hills.

Trancend Epic – how it works

As a minimum there will be stages in Glentress, Caberston (the Golfie), Traquair, and Yair.

All stages are timed, but our biggest focus for the first Trans Valley event is to create the best enduro-format weekend of MTB riding ever in the UK. Kick-off is from 0800 on Saturday morning and the event runs through until Sunday afternoon, with uplift all day, both days. You’ll be returned to Transcend Festival HQ on Saturday evening to join all the bikefest vibes and good times at the event village, so you can relive the day over beer and top nosh from the food village.
