Innerleithen Mountain Bike Racing has announced the following events over the next couple of months.
Sunday 30 October: Innerleithen MTB Series - Spooky Downhill (Under 18 only)
Saturday 19 November: Innerleithen Day/Night Enduro
Both events will be held within Traquair Forest, Innerleithen.
The Spooky Downhill is the final round in the Under 18 Series that has been running over the last few months. It takes the form of a short course “push up” downhill event where competitors push/ride their bikes to the start line. Following a practice session, competitors can do as many race runs as they like within the timed session – it all depends on how many times they are willing to push/ride back to the top. Sticking with the Halloween theme, there will be special prizes for costumes and any other Spooky happenings!
The Day/Night Enduro is an exciting new format for mountain biking and involves four special stages throughout the day and into the evening. With a maximum time allowed of four hours to complete the course, only the special stages are timed. The first two stages involve some excellent single-track, well away from the way marked routes. These stages are then repeated once darkness falls, so good lights are highly recommended.
