The 26TRIX dirt jump contest will unite 50 riders from 15 countries to battle for a prize money fund of 8.000 euros. And the last tour stop of the iXS European Downhill Cup 2008 will showcase pure racing action.Back in the beginning of June, the 26TRIX contest had to be postponed because of bad weather conditions.

Be prepared to watch fifty riders battling for their way into the finals. On Saturday, the best 15 dirt jumpers will show their sickest tricks to win the 26TRIX 2008. You have seen the list of riders, so be sure that the contest will be packed full of mad action. On top, the rider with the best skills and most props will be crowned with the Oakley Sick O Award.

But as said, not only the dirt jump maniacs will be served in Leogang during this weekend. The racers competing in the last tour stop of the iXS European Downhill Cup 2008 will face a course with a length of 2.3 kilometers and a vertical drop of 480 meters. Bikepark Leogang’s downhill track called “Speedster” is known as a technically very challenging one. But not only pro riders are meant to take part. Also amateurs are welcome to register on: http://www.ixsdownhillcup.com/.

The iXS European Downhill Cup seeding runs are scheduled for Saturday 20th from 02:00 pm on, the finals for Sunday 21st from 12:30 pm.

 this is crazy, why isn't Cam on there, he's way better than most of those other Aptos guys. I'd say that Greg Watts has more big tricks, but Cam definitely has a bigger bag o' tricks than his bro, or Ryan Howard.
