Video reveals the fun of Cream o’ the Croft Bike Fest
Check out this video for Scottish mountain biking’s new enduro, The Funduro, which is the flagship event of The Cream O’ The Croft Bike Festival. (There is also a 40% off weekend pass offer below.)
The festival takes place on June 26 to 28 at Comrie Croft Bike Trails in Perthshire. The Funduro is part of the event and features eight timed stages ranging from bike park skills and a cross-country sprint to dual slalom, a hill climb and red and black downhill sections. The event has classes for 14+ riders to 50+ riders.
The Funduro Timed Stages include:
Stage 1 – Red-Graded XC Hot Lap. Rocky, high-speed trail that points generally downhill. Requires stamina, efficient pedalling and good bike control.
Stage 2 – Blue Descent. Flowy, fast and superb fun! Keep off those brakes and use the rollers, jumps and berms to gain some free speed. Don’t overcook it though…
Stage 3 – Hill Climb. A short, sharp hill climb with some additional features just for a laugh. It won’t be too long or steep enough to spoil your day, but some significant places will be lost or gained here if you’re not careful.
Stage 4 – Red Descent. A fast and challenging natural descent. This has been extended especially for the Funduro to take you right back to the Croft. If you like roots, rocks, mud and rock slabs you’ll love this! Fortune favours the brave…..
Stage 5 – Pump & Jump. Exactly as the name suggests, you will be timed on a certain number of laps of the pumptrack jump line. It’s all roll-able and every time you pedal you’ll be hit with a significant time penalty, so you just have to pump it baby!
Stage 6 – Black Descent. Not to be taken lightly, this super-tough Black-graded trail is what Comrie Croft riding has always been about – serious gnarl! Again, this trail has had a few new sections added just for the Funduro. If you’re a demon descender this is where you claw back those valuable places.
Stages 7 & 8 – Dual Slalom. Yeehaa!! You can’t beat some head to head Dual Slalom racing to get that blood pumping! Line up at the start line with another rider, wait for the countdown and try to beat your opponent to the bottom. Once you get to the bottom, return to the start and do it all over again on the opposite lane.
