In addition to races in Germany, Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland there will also be events in Great Britain and the Czech Republic. This makes the international series second in importance only to the World Cup. The website for registration to take part in the first race in Innerleithen has now been activated. The dates for Cup events are as follows:

The „iXS Swiss Downhill Cup” and its younger brother, the “iXS German Downhill Cup”, will both run over four races in the coming season.
