Grinduro gravel race comes to Scotland

Fabric and Giro Sport Design collaborate to bring all-terrain race to Isle of Arran

More gravel racing is coming to UK shores with the launch of Grinduro UK, a collaboration between Giro Sport Design and Fabric.

Taking place on the Isle of Arran, Scotland, on July 15 2017, 400 riders will take on the race, a blend of gravel road racing and an MTB-style endure – one loop of pavement, gravel and dirt with finishing times based on four timed segments.

Grinduro originally launched Stateside, in Quincy, California, and the race is the centre-piece of a festival, headlined by Scottish band The Van T’s.

Fabric’s global marketing manager Neil Cousins said: “We’re proud to be a presenting sponsor of Grinduro and to help bring this unique event to Scotland.

“Grinduro fits perfectly with the Fabric philosophy: riding is all about how much fun you have and what could be better than a festival weekend riding the best all-road adventure the UK has to offer and celebrating with a well-earned beer or a scotch at the end?”

Registration for Grinduro CA, which takes place in Quincy on October 7, opens in mid-April.
