What is Downhill?

Downhill (DH) racing is a time trial event. Riders start at intervals that can vary from 30 seconds to three minutes-depending on the stage of the competition - and the rider with the lowest time wins. As the name of this discipline implies, DH races are held in steep, downhill terrain, resulting in higher speed than in cross-country racing. The terrain is also significantly rougher than in cross-country racing. The bike is designed with long travel suspension and hydraulic disc brakes.

Race Format

Best of Two:

- Riders start off with ~2 Minutes interval, according to their respective categories and registration list.
- Both round's timing will consider for final result.
- Fastest timing will consider for the final result.
- Riders have 2 race runs, (optional to take only 1 run)
- Rider order will change after the first run. Slower riders starts first.
- All obstacles are mandatory to clear.
- If a crash occurs and the rider takes longer then 3 minutes to return to the track it will be considered as a DNF.
- If a rider is blocked behind another rider, cows or public and their is evidence (Gopro feed, photo or video proof, eye witness), that rider can take an additional run.

Note: - No practice round on race day
