“Delightfully Unique and Riotous Fun!” – Enduro Mountainbike Magazine

It’s that time again, where Farmer Roger sends the cows off on their holidays and removes all the fences, so we can transform Parkhill Farm into a stunning race venue!

The Eliminator Mountain Bike Festival finishes off the Summer holidays in the same way our other festival Cream o’ the Croft kicks it off….with a bang!  Although both festivals share many of the same traits such as; family-friendly camping and glamping, beer festival, MTB racing for all ages, delicious food, live music and super-fun festival activities, there is nothing quite like The Eliminator.  Described by Enduro Mountainbike Magazine as; “A highlight on the Scottish racing calendar” The Eliminator is undoubtedly the most spectacularly bonkers mountain bike event known to man (or cow).

The eliminator

Our 2018 line-up is so packed we can’t fit it all in here but you can be assured there’s something for everyone!  When it comes to Mountain Bike racing we have all bases covered with a Cross-Country Eliminator tournament for the short-course whippets, an off-road Duathlon (The Muckathlon) for the more endurance oriented (plus a mini version for the kids) and the one and only “Eliminator Head2Head MTB Race” for anyone who loves riding Mountain Bikes down hills!

For non-racers we have tons of non-biking activities, from Yoga taster sessions to a Mega Water Slide and live music and we even have pre-pitched Hammock and Bell Tent accommodation if you don’t fancy the on-site camping!  Scroll down to order your tickets and follow our news and social media pages for regular updates!
