THE ELIMINATOR

23-25 June 2017 | 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.  It runs on alternating years to it’s twin sister Cream o’ the Croft and 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.

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 2017 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 Giant Water Slide, Funky Mountain Climb (just wait ’til you see that!) Live Music, Climbing Wall and all manner of other shenanigans.

Hey Dude, Get With The Programme!

FRIDAY 23RD JUNE

It’s Summer, we have the most beautiful views in Scotland, a well-stocked bar and acres of our very own countryside for the kids (and adults) to mess around in.  Let the good times roll!

Gates open at 4pm giving you time to set up camp, chill with friends in the bar, grab something delicious at the food tent or head out for a cheeky bike ride before the XC Eliminator kicks off!  Once the those crazy Muckers have thrashed each other into submission, we’ll probably have some classic Muckmedden silliness with an Extreme Adult Balance Bike Dual Slalom (or something along those lines) and then we’ll put the bikes away and cap the night off with live music by the campfire and a Silent Disco in the big tent.

What a way to kick of our 2017 season!  Let’s hope we haven’t peaked too early…….

SATURDAY 24TH JUNE

Oops, after such an amazing first night, did we peak too early after all?  Of course not!  Today is the day of the one and only Eliminator Head2Head MTB Race! 

Unbelievably we also have the Muckathlon (off-road Duathlon), kid’s bike racing and a bunch of non-biking attractions to keep everyone beside themselves with joy.  Whether you’re getting your race-face on today, watching the action from the bar, or kicking-back at camp, here are some of the treats you can expect today:  The Eliminator Head2Head MTB Race – Toddler Bike Racing – Bouncy Castle – Climbing Wall – Farmer’s Market – Pumptrack – Beer Festival – Adventure Circus – Delicious Local Food – Giant Waterslide – Funky Mountain Climb – Face Painting – Barley Dual Slalom – Kids Mini Muckathlon – Live Music – Camp Fires – Silent Disco.

SUNDAY 25TH JUNE

What- a- weekend.  After an amazing two days, The Eliminator is over for another couple of years and it’s time to pack up a ship out. 

One, two, three, awwww…….

Well, not quite.  Our fabby food stalls are on-hand to serve up hearty morning-after breakfasts, fresh coffees and other treats.  You have all day to get yourself together as we’ll be on-site clearing up anyway, so feel free to have a soft start, have a wander/bike along the Fife Coastal path and soak up those breath-taking views before you pack up and head home. 

Eliminator, you have been Eliminaaated!  See you in 2019.
