PRESS RELEASE: Muckmedden
Muckmedden is inviting Enduro-heads from all corners of the UK (and further afield) to take part in Clans @ The Croft, a new epic Enduro battle in Highland Perthshire in April, which is inspired by the Enduro World Series’ (EWS) Trophy of Nations.Clans @ The Croft
will give Enduro riders an exciting opportunity not only to race solo but also to join forces with other riders to race as a ‘Clan’ in the event’s special team category and we're ecstatic to be bringing the Team Enduro format to Scotland's award-winning trail centre and campsite, Comrie Croft!

. The Croft’s legendary network of trails and excellent facilities combine to make the perfect venue for this event and it promises to be one heck of a weekend!
What's the point of having teams? Racing as a team adds a whole new level of strategy to an Enduro race, as riders have to use their combined strengths to their advantage on each stage. The best thing about it? Not only do riders get to represent their Clan in the team category, but they also get their individual solo times too. What’s not to like!
The second Enduro on the Muckmedden roster next year is the renowned Fair City Enduro
, staged in Perth on Saturday 31st October. The annual Halloween mountain bike race has been selected as Scotland’s only Enduro World Series Qualifier event for a third year in succession and is now widely regarded as one of the top Mountain Bike Enduros staged annually in the UK.
Combining world-class Enduro racing with outlandish Halloween fancy-dress, Fair City Enduro was first elevated to EWS Qualifier status in 2018 and entries are guaranteed to sell out months ahead of race day. With a record 460 sign-ups, last year's event attracted riders from as far afield as Hungary and is set to be more popular than ever in 2020.
It’s such a privilege knowing that Fair City Enduro has been chosen as Scotland’s only EWS Qualifier again, but as always the event will stay true to its fun-focused ethos. Whilst we now welcome some very high calibre Enduro riders competing for valuable EWS points, it is also great to see the number of riders in fancy dress, out to have as much fun as possible, increasing every year. Last year we had Mr Happy, a couple of Mermaids, some Deliveroo riders and even a giant Seagull shredding the trails! It’s just hilarious to watch! Who will be on the start line in 2020?Earlybird discounts, offering 15% off race entries to Clans @ The Croft and Fair City Enduro, are available from 7 am on 14 December 2019 until 14 January 2020 (subject to availability).
