THE ELIMINATOR MOUNTAIN BIKE FESTIVAL

31 August to 2nd September 2018 | Parkhill Farm, Cupar Road, Newburgh, Fife, KY14 6HR

“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 is our original family-friendly Mountain Bike Festival and it bookends the Summer holidays with sister festival Cream o’ the Croft.  Although both festivals share many of the same family 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.

An event described by Enduro Mountainbike Magazine as; “A highlight on the Scottish racing calendar” the main focus of the festival will once again be the most spectacular mountain bike racing and spectating known to man (or cow).

The eliminator

Our 2018 line-up is so jam-packed we can’t possibly fit it all in here!  We have everything from a Farmer’s Market to a Beer Festival and will be offering super-cool Hammock and luxury Bell Tent accommodation options for solos, groups and families looking to upgrade from a standard camping/campervan pitch.

When it comes to racing, we have it covered; on Friday night we have an XC (Cross-Country) Eliminator tournament and on Saturday we have an off-road Duathlon called The Muckathlon and the one and only “Eliminator Head2Head Race“.  As if all that wasn’t enough, we have a Mini Muckathlon and bike racing for kids aged 3+ and tons of non-biking attractions including a Mega Water Slide, Fire Performer, Funky Mountain Climb (just wait ’til you see that!) Live Music, Climbing Wall, Circus Workshops and all manner of other shenanigans.
