Ballo Enduro; A new addition to the Coupar Angus Cycling Festival this year. Those that know the area will be well aware of the Mountain biking hidden gem in the area that is Ballo and the surrounding trails. If you don’t know about the trails, and have not ridden near Coupar Angus, before we suggest you get entered and come and find some of the amazing riding that is on offer.

There is an amazing matrix of trails to be ridden here.  The event will warm you up with a pedal out to the trails.  We start with some flat out first stages with whole new sections being added and epic scenery zooming past.  Then things get spiced up, testing your more technical abilities in the later stages of the race.  Expect fast flowy trails as well as some steeper techy stuff.

To be kept up to date with the trails at Ballo in the run up to the 17th follow us on Instagram HERE or check out the event page of facebook HERE

We will be using the SPORTident "Air+" timing system which allows the rider to ride through the start and finish gates with no need to dib in or out allowing for an accurate and instant course time. Along with the guys from SPORTident coming along to provide timings on a big screen for you on your return from the radical trails.

Rules and Regulations

-      Ballo Enduro is approximately a 20 mile loop in total and requires a decent level of fitness and is suitable for mountain bikers with some level of experience riding down technical single track routes with sections and features that may not be at your everyday riding spot or trail centre. This Enduro race is going to be a belter and we aim to please and put in the most fun flowy trails we possibly can.  We will cater for as many riders possible, but we do advise that the trails are not suitable for beginners. If you have any doubts about your ability, and whether this is the right event for you, then please get in touch and email Grant at


-      There will be 5 timed stages which you will find out on the day.  We have been working hard with the forestry commission to help preserve all these trails during felling and thinning work being done recently.  We are delighted to say that few trails have been affected and it will actually create new opportunities for the race that no one has seen before

-      The Ballo Enduro is run by the Coupar Angus Cycling Hub and its volunteers. Any money made from this Enduro will go straight back into making next years Festival (Free event on Saturday 16th, the day before) and Enduro even better.  By entering you are not only getting to race and discover some amazing new trails, you are supporting the Coupar Angus Cycling Hub and helping to secure a better future for cycling infrastructure in Coupar Angus and surrounding areas in years to come.

-      Riders aged under 16 on the 1st January 2016 must be accompanied by an adult rider on the course (there is no charge for the adult who is accompanying them)

-      We are always keen for more volunteers to help with trail maintenance and helping on the day of the event. If you or anyone you know would like to help please email Grant :
