Faster - riding a mountain bike down the hill, we'd better be confident and focused. But sometimes it seems for outsider not understandble, how somebody can ride down so fast and attacking the trail so hard. Alexandre Fayolle is everything else but not a slow rider. He is very chilled, very calm and focused. But see him at the Greenland Downhill Race, how fast he rides down the trail, how he can drop the road gap without even putting his fingers on his brake levers, although just after the drop there is a big right hand berm. Going faster must be just in his mind, don’t touch the brakes, don’t touch me. Read all about the second edition of the Enping Downhill Race.
Murphy from Beijing wants to go also faster and faster. She has only been riding mountain bike downhill about one year. She comes from motorbike riding, so she knows for sure how to go fast. And she must know, because out of 3 downhill races she won 2, and at one race she crashed. Come along with her, and see what she feels about going fast on a bike.
Matej Charvat was after a race in Indonesia traveling to the island of Java. It was sure not a race but he sure went fast down Mount Bromo which is still a active volcano. We show you the beautiful landscape and tell you about his video project there. Winter is coming, which means, don’t ride with shorts anymore, but - ride on!

In addition, there will be some structural changes within the iXS Downhill Cup. What have been the iXS Swiss and iXS German Downhill Cup will merge to form the new iXS Downhill Cup, while both EDC and Specialized Rookies Cup remain exactly as they were.
(Read more about the reasons for and the details of this change here.)
The iXS Downhill Cup will include all the races with a rather national character and will crown both a German champion in Thale and a Swiss Champion in Bellwald. The riders are allowed to include 5 different races of their own choosing into their rankings.
Specialized Rookies Cup
After the Specialized Rookies Cup presented by iXS increased the number of races to 6 in 2017, there will be again 6 races this upcoming season. In addition to 4 well-known venues, we added another 2 new ones to the mix, including one race in Italy and one in Schöneck, to keep challenging our rookies and helping them improve their skills!

Himalayan Summer - after the big monsoon, in September, the Himalayas are ready for their „summer“. During our summer, it's raining too much, and so it doesn't happen much there then. In Manali, there were just two races, the Himalayan Mountain Bike Festival, and the Junior Downhill Championship. Both happened between just two weekends. Our team riders went there, and will tell you about it.
Yakru, the world's highest Enduro race was also held in Nepal, in the Manang district of the Annapurna Ranges. We take you there, so you can enjoy the landscape without losing a drop of sweat. There will be a lot of races now during the „winter“ in India and Nepal, and we will keep you informed.
Not quite Himalayan or Indian Summer was the RedBull Foxhunt in Machynlleth, where the girls attacked the muddy trail. The boys in Rostrevor, Northern Ireland, had a bit better conditions, but with 500 riders it was also very slippery. Gill and Marshy, two riders in the Foxhunt, give you an impression of how it feels to get hunted.
Chinese Summer is hot, specially in middle China, but at the Qinghai plateau, which is over 2000 meter above sea level, the weather is perfect for riding a bike. Bella Chen was there in August for a race, the TDRY International Downhill Race. She tells you how she did at her first time riding in China.
