With over 400 riders from all over the world the IXS European Cup in Pila was a 5 minute course with a starting altitude of around 2000 meters - a tough race for all competitors.

 

There was a great women's field at this race with riders from Australia and New Zealand getting in some practice for the World Championships in Champery in a few weeks time.

We headed over to Pila with the scottish lads that had been camping outside our house for the past week!!

Pila is a high altitude resort with some amazing tracks. For the IXS European Cup, they use the 2005 World Cup track - although this year they put in some new sections… and with the weather they have had, it was an awesome track to ride.

The course has everything rocks, drops, big jumps and pedalling sections its a track that even the best riders struggle to put a complete clean run together. Also with the 400 riders ruts and holes appeared all weekend making it even tougher!

Thanks for your support!

Next stop... Opening rider/Course clearing in Champery!!
