THIS is a hugely exciting year for mountain biking in the Tweed Valley, with TweedLove taking place 29th - 30th of April, and the UCI World Championships XC and XC Marathon races heading to Glentress in August – it’s also Endura’s 30th anniversary year.

To celebrate, Endura has partnered with TweedLove to invite schools from across the Tweed Valley to enter a Design-a-Jersey competition.

The winner will have their entry professionally designed by Endura’s custom graphics team and produced into a MTB jersey at the Scottish company’s Livingston headquarters which makes over 50,000 garments a year, and involves over 50 people in the production process.

Second and Third place will be rewarded with Endura kit while 10 runners up will receive awesome Endura goodie bags. Over 400 school children participated with awesome, creative entries inspired by the landscape of the Scottish Borders, the community’s love of MTB and even wider issues such as refugees and the environment.

Quote from Lucinda Beresford, Endura Shopper Marketing Executive and part of the jersey competition judging panel: “We were blown away by the creativity, care and attention the children put into their entries. There are certainly some talented designers in the Tweed Valley. After much deliberation, the winner was selected for its bold design and thought-provoking message which we felt Endura, the TweedLove festival organisers and the people of the Tweed Valley could unite behind.”

All the entries will be displayed over the weekend at the Endura stand in the TweedLove festival village on Tweed Green, Peebles where the Endura team will also have activities to entertain kids and adults alike.
