[part title=”Red Bull Fox Hunt – UK”]
When: October 2014
Where: Rostrevor, Northern Ireland
The Red Bull Fox Hunt gives you the chance to pit your skills against a downhill world champion as you and 400 others try and beat Gee Atherton down an Northern Irish hillside. The public takes on the role of the hounds but with Atherton giving chase as the fox in a reversal of the country pursuit.
Riders range from first timers to seasoned pro’s all aiming to take a famous scalp. The race begins with a mass start from the hounds with Gee Atherton released a short time after. Anyone who makes it down before Atherton wins. Last year 13 riders did so and the year before that just one rider crossed the line first.
