Fetish Bike DH Series Rd1 Innerleithen

The first Fetish Bike winter downhill race run by Mike Marsden’s Borderline Events took place at the weekend in Innerleithen.  Being a winter race the weather is always a risk, don’t know if that was the reason for the small entry of a 130 odd riders but anybody that decided not to race missed out on a great weekends racing.  Track was a straight forward old school Inners classic taped by Joe Connell, pretty much the Gold run but just after the middle fire road you kept left down the fire break and took a left into the old xc track then a right down into one of the old tracks onto the motorway, down into the arena out the bomb-hole round the berms and into the finish in around 3.30 – 4 minutes for a good time.
