Innerleithen MTB Racing Mini Downhill Series


Innerleithen MTB Racing Mini Downhill Series

Entries opened today for the 2010 Mini Downhill Series at Innerleithen.

Brought to you by the team who bought you the iXS Cup, this is a mini downhill race series for the Under 16s. Riders will push/ride their bikes up to the start, and timing is done manually with stopwatches. Riders have no stated start time, they will line up when they get to the top and leave at 30 second intervals. Riders will complete as many runs as they have the energy for ! This is a Go-Race, and a British Cycling licence is not required.

Mackay's Furniture in Edinburgh have come on board to sponsor these events, and are helping to make it a good day out for all the family, with food stalls and entertainment for the younger kids, and a BBQ for everyone.

Coaching sessions are available from Scottish Cycling. To book your place, contact David Winton. or 07908673219
