UCI Mountain Bike World Cup

6 - 7 June

Staged in Fort William, the 2015 UCI World Cup served up an amazing weekend of mountain biking action. Our Jeep®
ambassadors made a big impact with Rachel Atherton winning the woman’s race, while Gee came fourth in his field. Check out
the action in our gallery.


Red Bull Hardline

12 - 13 September

Dan Atherton has used the Mid Wales countryside to build one of the fastest, toughest downhill mountain bike runs ever
created. Gnarly rock gardens, giant slab rolls, tight woods sections, technical natural features and a giant man-made road gap –
all designed to push the world's best to their limits. Watch last years course below.


Red Bull Foxhunt

26 - 27 September

The Red Bull Foxhunt returned to the Pentlands Hills in Edinburgh for its female-only, mass start downhill race. Traditional roles are
reversed as 150 competitors, playing the part of the hounds, try to outride the best downhill racer in the world, and the “fox”,
Rachel Atherton as she races to pass them by. The hunters become the hunted.
