After the summer break we hit the loam of Kirroughtree. What the venues lacks in elevation it makes up for in deep luscious loam. Each year we return to find that the team from the break pad bike shop have built us new stages with virgin loam. We still reuse some classics, mixing trail and off piste sections for a selection that can be enjoyed by all, the stoke meter is always on high here.
A grass roots round that the fastest also enjoy, it has everything an enduro should have and has become an unmissable round of the PMBA Enduro series with many calling it their favourite.
Often racers will bring the whole family, as the idyllic camping area and permanent brick shower/toilet block gives a holiday vibe; enhanced by the smells from many BBQ’s in the evening.
Late in the year, September is not overly problematic with the midges either – but still come prepared!
