Two new MTB events for Scotland

Written by Fiona May 06 2013
After the success of last year’s Muckmedden mountain biking event, 2013 will see two new events. On July 27/28, the Eliminator offers a head-to-head downhill race for up-for-it riders. Taking place in Fife, this race starts with a flat out slalom on open hillside, drops into a steep forest section and ends with a mad slalom through handlebar-high barley.

The stages are claimed to be “brilliant fun” and mostly downhill (except stage 1, which is a short, sharp and techy climb). Each stage will be different including a “gnarly, rooty singletrack” stage and a “flat out and drifty” stage.

The Fair City Enduro is just before Hallowe’en, so all marshalls will be in fancy dress, so if you fancy having a giggle why not ride in fancy dress, too?

Stagecoach are putting on a shuttle bus for the event, which will ferry spectators from the city up to the forest stages and back.
