do: dirty scoundrel
downhill all the way
Widely recognised as probably the best downhill event in the world, Nevis Range is home of the 2011 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Downhill once again this year.
You'll find reigning World Cup winner Gee Atherton and World Champion Tracy Moseley alongside Steve Peat, Rachel Atherton and a string of great riders all battling it out at this year's World Cup to prove once again that Britain is the top nation in men's and women's downhill.
The reason why? Nevis Range is the only World Cup venue and the only course with gondola access in the UK - and it's right on our doorstep!
The downhill is one of the most challenging in the world, with a drop of 555m and 2.8km long. Rock gardens, rock slabs, big jumps and technical natural sections will provide plenty of challenges all the way to the final wall drop and into the finish. As an expert level track, it is best tackled on downhill bikes, which are available to rent if you’d like to give it a go!
The new Nevis Red is described as a tough singletrack downhill, and is easily one of the best trails in the country! At 5.5km long, it winds its way across steep, rugged & tough wide single track, a mixture of timber boardwalk, bedrock, gravel, rock gardens with berms, rock steps, jumps, drops, and gap jumps.
There are many more trails in the area and nearby. The chairlift-serviced downhill at Glencoe is fast developing a following and the downhill at Laggan Wolftrax now has a van uplift service.
