The barley fields and rolling hills of Parkhill Farm, Newburgh, Fife, will host The Eliminator, one of Scotland’s most fun-packed mountain bike events from 23 to 25 June.

The feature event is the Head2Head downhill race on Saturday that pitches XC whippets against Enduro specialists, downhillers and weekend warriors on a course suitable for any bike.

This year the festival boasts a new cross country mountain bike eliminator tournament on the Friday night, an off-road duathlon and a host of non-biking attractions ranging from live music to a farmers market and mega water slide.

Aaron Gray from Muckmedden Events, organisers of weekender, said: “The Eliminator has always been a firm favourite with mountain bikers and spectators thanks to some really exciting racing, yet it has always had the potential to attract a wider audience.

The Eliminator Weekender will be a fun-packed three days for racers and non-racers alike, with new attractions for every age, such as a mega water slide, Adventure Circus workshops, climbing wall, family friendly camping, “Funky Mountain” uphill scramble, Round Three of The Scottish Bike Trial Championship, live music, local food stalls, smoothie bikes, silent disco and bouncy castle.

There will also be a licenced craft drinks bar.
