Event Overview

Boom!!! 2013 Ayrshire MTB Series is Go!!

Mini Downhill time at EVR Bikepark in Newmilns!!

What is MiniDH?

Downhill mountain biking is a fast and exciting sport, putting man (or mini person) and machine against the clock. Each rider has to ride a set course comprising of jumps, drops, roots, rocks, twists and turns. The aim is to complete the course as fast as you can.

Mini downhill is just like the real thing but miniature! Shorter courses, smaller bikes and younger riders but it has all of the passion, excitement and drama of racing! The Mini Downhill Series will provide a pathway for aspiring young downhill riders aged between 8 and 16 years of ages to get their first taste of downhill mountain bike racing.

What is Short Course XC?

XC mountain biking is fast paced circuit racing with a mass start, a number of laps with tracks containing roots, rocks, twists and turns.

Short course is just the same, but on a smaller loop course and 3 or 5 laps to suit the mini racers abilities!
