It's that time of year again, when the future stars of UK downhill get the chance to develop their biking skills on the world famous trails of Innerleithen.

The first downhill races in the UK exclusively for younger riders, the three race series is organised by Innerleithen MTB Racing, the team who brought the first iXS European Cup to Britain in 2010.  The aim of the series is to introduce young riders to the sport in a relaxed and enjoyable way, in a safe environment.

The day is relaxed with plenty of time to stop for lunch from the catering van and as many runs as you can fit in!
