iXS European Downhill Cup #5

Register now for Pila

Four exciting rounds have already been held, and registration is now open for the decisive one. The grand finale of this year's EDC will be held in the north of Italy from 09 to 11 September. The demanding course in Pila is once again worthy of a grand finale to the season.


Pila has been on the race calendar of the iXS European Downhill Cup for several years and is more than well-known and popular within the mountain bike community. The unique view of the Monterosa and the Matterhorn alone is worth it. This year, the finals of the European Cup will take place in the small town above the city of Aosta.

Pila is located at 1,800 metres in the beautiful Aosta Valley. The challenging downhill track covers a length of 2.7 kilometres at an altitude of over 460 metres. The athletes can look forward to a lot of variety: high-speed passages, steep sections with rocky edges, rutted root sections, playful berms and natural jumps make the track varied and the field of riders has to call up different skills on the bike. So not only technical skills and endurance are required, but also mental strength. That is why this track is very popular with many professional riders and is always a favourite venue in the World Cup.

So it's worth registering!
