Red Bull Foxhunt returns to Rostrevor in County Down this October for the 7th edition of the downhill mountain bike event.
Over 550 riders will take to the summit of Slieve Martin on the 6th and 7th October in an attempt to outrun three cunning foxes in the shape of some of the world’s leading mountain bike riders.
This year’s exclusive ‘pack’ of foxes will be current UCI Downhill World Champion, Loic Bruni, making his second appearance at Red Bull Foxhunt; two-time World Champion and veteran fox, Gee Atherton as well as Irish rider and Red Bull athlete, Greg Callaghan.
The three riders get a short head start and then the challenge for the riders behind is to catch them and prove their mettle in one of the most visually exciting sporting events of the year here.
The event normally sells out in minutes so if you fancy your chances in 2018 take note that registration will open up at 12 noon on August 1st.
The event is broadcast via Red Bulls multiple global channels and presents one of the widest reaching and visually stunning presentations of Ireland as an adventure sports venue as you could possibly imagine.
