Run on an endurance format, individuals and teams of two, three or four will compete over four hours to see who can complete the most laps of a top-class eight mile (approx) course around Rothiemurchus. The course will include a mixture of forestry roads and singletrack.
The OutRider 4 will cater for the full spectrum of fitness and skill levels giving recreational riders, racers, off road riders and weekend warriors.
Neil Dalgleish, the Outsider Festival biking organiser, said: “We think that the festival’s biking will be even better this year. We’ve got a brilliant course, and the four-hour format makes it really accessible to all levels of riders. The transition area will be right in the festival arena so it should be a lot of fun for all the teams and spectators too. Four hours also means people should have some energy left to have a really good time and soak up the fantastic atmosphere of the packed festival programme.
“With Dave Keegan of Bothy Bikes, the undisputed expert of the trail network in the Cairngorms National Park, setting another superb course and Frazer Coupland and the team from No Fuss Events directing things on the ground I know we have the perfect team for a fantastic biking event.”
The Outsider is the only festival in the UK that offers a range of outdoor activities both inside and outside the arena – Outsider Active – making The Outsider Britain’s most innovative outdoor festival. The Outsider Active programme also includes the OutRunner, a 12k run around Loch An Eilein and the Rothie Relay, a new team running event on 6k lap course, both on Saturday 27 June.
