Although we may still be a few months away from World Cup racing that doesn't mean we can't see some of the World's fastest riders hit the track together.
To help fill the void of no racing Wyn Masters, Markus Pekoll, Uwe Buchholzand and Racement have come together to create the iXS Cup Test Session which will see around 30 riders come to Schladming for two days of timed testing.
Although riders are going to be against the clock this won't come in the form of a direct race with riders instead having "timed test sessions" similar to timed training at World Cups, this means riders have a period of time where they can make as many runs as they want. Due to the current circumstances, the organisers are ensuring all necessary hygiene measures are followed with social distancing fully enforced.
It's great to finally see some of the World's best hit the slopes and stay tuned on Pinkbike for all the news from Schladming.
