Mountain biking superstars to headline inaugural Dunoon Outdoor Festival and Expo ‘Summit to Sea’ in September

Greg Minnaar and Steve Peat will speak about their careers as part of the brand new event presented by Dunoon Presents  A three day festival celebrating the outdoors in and around Dunoon will be held for the first time in the town on Scotland’s Adventure Coast from 27 – 29 September 2019. Including the annual Dunoon Triathlon, the event, presented by the Dunoon Project, will be a weekend packed with activities for those who love the outdoors, including running, mountain biking, mountaineering talks and sea kayaking sessions.   An ambassador for the Dunoon Project, mountain bike legend, three time Downhill World Cup and World Champion Greg Minnaar will be speaking about his career on Saturday evening 28 September. Minnaar, hailing from Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, has achieved 21 Downhill World Cup victories and 75 podiums. He is no stranger to the Scottish audiences, having won the World Cup race in Fort William for an astonishing seven times, most recently in 2017. In ‘A truly Scotland audience with Greg Minnaar and Rob Warner’ he will be interviewed by another UK mountain bike legend, Rob Warner, who in 1996 became the first ever British rider to win a round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Over the weekend Greg Minnaar will also be promoting and endorsing the ongoing Dunoon Project, a major development currently at feasibility stage, which will involve the creation of a cable car uplift and hilltop visitor facility, cafe, zip wire and mountain biking trail infrastructure.
