What is Downhill?

Downhill (DH) racing is a time trial event. Riders start at intervals that can vary from 30 seconds to three minutes-depending on the stage of the competition - and the rider with the lowest time wins. As the name of this discipline implies, DH races are held in steep, downhill terrain, resulting in higher speed than in cross-country racing. The terrain is also significantly rougher than in cross-country racing. The bike is designed with long travel suspension and hydraulic disc brakes.


Race Format

- Riders start off with ~2 Minutes interval, according to their respective categories and registration list.

- Both round's timing will consider for final result.

- Fastest timing will consider for the final result.

- Riders have 2 race runs, (optional to take only 1 run)
- Rider order will change after the first run, with slower riders going first.
- All obstacles are mandatory to clear.
- If a crash occurs and the rider takes longer then 3 minutes to return to the track it will be considered as a DNF.

BBCh Race Disclaimer:

Kindly Note: Bangalore Bicycle Championships is totally run by volunteers and we are extremely short of hands. In the event or pre-event or post-event there may be few human errors which are completely unintentional. To sort out those errors or issues we might take some time which may seem longer than usual but again that is because of the crunch of resources. We understand that these events are run by the registration fees collected from the participants and naturally the participants can expect the basic error free running of the event. But we sincerely request all to bear with us for any delay. Thank you for your understanding.
