    The German Championship

The 26th Absolute Downhill awaits us! From 16 - 18 August, the legendary downhill race will be held on the Lindenberg in Ilmenau. The title of German champion is also at stake here!

The legend lives on

Every year, hundreds of riders and thousands of spectators are drawn to the picturesque town of Ilmenau in the Thuringian Forest. The race is known for its challenging course, which offers a mixture of steep descents, tight bends and challenging jumps.

The big problem

The track in Ilmenau once wound its way through the dense forest. As this has now been almost completely destroyed by the bark beetle, a solution has to be found by August. The local club is currently working flat out to make the track race-ready again as quickly as possible. Further information on the track construction in Ilmenau will be available in the near future.

iXS Trail Stories

We all love the excitement of the Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup. But to ride at the top, you need a strong base. With this video last year, iXS showed what it means to build that strong base. Watch the video here.
