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.
Then on October 26/27, the Fair City Enduro takes place in Perth, Scotland’s newest city. 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.
