On October 4th, over 400 riders will take on the Red Bull Foxhunt in Rostrevor, Co. Down. The aim of the race is for thse 400 riders to try and outfox two-time Downhill World Champion (2010 & 2014), Gee Atherton.
The course, combining sections of existing downhill track with additional mountain and multi-terrain sections, will begin atop Slieve Martin before descending through sections of trail, moorland and forest to the sprint finish in the grounds of Rostrevor’s Kilbroney Park.
The pack will tear down the three and a half miles of unforgiving downhill course encompassing wind bleached moorland, mud-spattered forests and hair-raising sprints, each adrenaline pumped biker tirelessly battling to cross the finish line before the advancing fox.
Downhill legend Claudio Caluori previewed the course.
