Tweedlove Stories No.1 Crawford Carrik Anderson

Here’s the first of a few films for this year’s TweedLoveBike Festival.

Crawfy is way fast around here, so no wonder he’s one of the favourites to podium at the enduros this year, especially the POC King & Queen of the Hill – Glentress, 27 May.

Crawford Carrick-Anderson, Team Ibis

Some career highlights?
7th in World DH cup in Canada in 1999, 9th in World Championships in Sweden in 1999, 13th in World Championships in Kaprun in 2002.

How long riding in the Tweed valley?
I first rode in the Tweed Valley in 1996, and I now ride there several times a week!

Favourite places to ride here?
My favourite place is the wood above Innerleithen golf course. They are very technical tracks but I love riding everywhere, Glentress, Innerleithen, Gypsy Glen etc.

Any thoughts on Enduro racing?
I love it! It is getting bigger every year. Great to have a full day of racing over several hours.

A fav/memorable mountain bike moment?
1999 was my best year with results, it was amazing. I really remember one of my first ever DH races in France in 1998. It was pouring with rain and I loved it. I was 20th in the seeding and it felt amazing. Unfortunately I crashed in the final! It made me really confident for the rest of the years.
