13th Annual Onabike Cup slated for this weekend

Britain's longest established downhill race, the Onabike Cup happens again on December 17th in Ashcombe. It was established in 1994. Over the years, the course and the bikes have evolved. At the 1994 edition, only four racers rode full suspension, including the winner Steve Kitchen.

The race has been held at Ashcombe every year and was originally a one-off downhill race. It now wraps up the South West downhill series, with its regular near-Christmas, season-ending date.

Ashley Mullane won the even the last two editions in 2004 and 2005.
