iXS European Downhill Cup Innerleithen

Story posted March 16; Event: 28th-30th May 2010

2010 sees the long anticipated return of open to all international racing to Scotland with the first round of the iXS European Cup. With racing taking place at the legendary venue of Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders, close times and great competition are guaranteed. So for the first time since 2000 you can pit yourself against the world’s best riders as they descend upon Scotland for the famous World Cup just one week later in Fort William. With many great riders already on the cards to race this event it promises to be a fantastic action packed weekend for both riders and spectators alike. 
The May Bank holiday weekend kicks off with a course inspection from midday on Friday and an afternoon of practice followed by a free pre-race party. From then on, it’s down to business with practice on Saturday in which every competitor must complete at least two full runs followed by a seeding run in the afternoon which will dictate the running order for Sunday. And once Sunday dawns, it’s down to racing, with final timed runs following on from a short period of morning free practice to get riders up to speed after a night spent enjoying the local hospitality.

iXS Cup Innerleithen is brought to you by Innerleithen MTB Racing, with the support of Vattenfall, Scottish Borders Council, Macdonalds Hotel Cardrona and i-Cycles of Innerleithen. Entries are now live so book in early to avoid disappointment.
