Watch the Foxhunt pack of over 200 women try to outride the best female downhill racer in the world.
Red Bull Foxhunt with Jeep was back for 2016. The world’s only all female downhill MTB event headed to Melmerby Scar, in the Eden Valley, Cumbria with a pack of 200+ riders set to try and outride the best female downhill racer in the world – Rachel Atherton.
The event took place over a full weekend, in a festival of female downhill MTB action, with camping available from Friday night through to Sunday. For the first time, the Eden Valley hosted the chase, with a new course at Melmerby Scar that tested rider's technical ability and competitive edge, as they tried to stay ahead of Rachel over a challenging 2km course.
Speaking about the event, Rachel Atherton said, “It was absolutely amazing. I got a puncture right at the start, but I knew I had to carry on – this is Red Bull Foxhunt! It was so cool watching the women riding down– I was right in the middle of everybody. I had to really think and use my head to get past people."
