Scottish Cycling Mini DH
How do future World Champions get into Downhill? One way is through the Scottish Cycling Mini DH series. In 2017 there is a calendar of regional events throughout Scotland where 8-16 year olds can show off their downhill skills and earn a qualification slot for the Mini DH Final at the World Cup weekend. These events have been chosen to cover Scotland as best as possible to provide a variety of different courses and experiences.
At the Fort William World Cup the world’s best riders come to Britain’s only international level competition track to race in front of huge crowds of cheering fans, and therefore it only seems fitting to host the final of the Mini Downhill Series at the event.
Downhill mountain bike is a fast and exciting sport pitting rider and machine against the clock. Each rider rides a set course comprising of jumps, drops, roots, rocks, twists and turns. They aim to complete the course in the fastest time possible.
Mini Downhill (Mini DH) is just like the real thing but smaller. Shorter courses, smaller bikes and younger riders but it has all of the passion, excitement and drama of racing!
The Mini Downhill Series provides a pathway for aspiring young downhill riders to get their first taste of downhill racing;
