Ride Mountain Bike Day is coming! On July 20th, we will join mountain bikers around the world by blowing off all other obligations and simply riding our mountain bikes. We encourage riders everywhere - in all regions and skill levels - to join in on the fun.
The first annual International Ride Mountain Bike Day will take place July 20th and continue annually thereafter. Otherwise known as Ride MTB Day, this yearly movement is composed of community-based events that will take place around the globe with mountain bike brands, media, professionals, retailers, parks and local riders everywhere - each showing their love and support for the sport of mountain biking by holding group rides, fundraisers, races and demos.
“The sport of Mountain Biking has an incredible culture and Ride MTB Day is a great way to celebrate it. Ride MTB Day is not a Fox-owned event, but our goal is to have the concept adopted by the entire industry and raise mountain bike awareness and participation. We look forward to more and more brands and retailers supporting Ride MTB Day year after year.” - Dave Ahumada, Global Marketing Manager, Fox MTB.
On this day, each year, mountain bikers will gather together at local trails, bike parks, and bike shops and even enjoy solitary rides, helping to bring riders all over the world together.

World Cup DH#4, Val di Sole: This is a beast of the track. It's among the hardest and most technical courses on the DH MTB World Cup. Add heavy rainfall in the into the mix and then you have a course that's even more unpredictable than usual.
Tahnee Seagrave took the win in the women's downhill World Cup! She won by a hair at a tenth of a second to claim her second win of the year and re-ignite her title challenge. She had this to say following her win, “It’s been the best win so far because it was so tight and you have to work really hard for it, and that’s exactly what I had to do.”
Laurie Greenland is on fire! Back to back podiums for the Brit. He put in a fast and direct run where he took all the risks, nearly going over the bars at the start. He finished second.
You don’t have to wait long for the next DH World Cup Race. We’re back racing this weekend, July 14-15 in Vallnord, Andorra.
