The British Downhill National Championships will be run this weekend, July 18-19, in Innerleithen, Scotland. A challenging track awaits the UK's finest downhill racers, and an impressive line-up, including some of the world's best, is slated to compete.

Downhill World Champion Gee Atherton will be under pressure from reigning national champion Steve Peat as well as brother Dan Atherton, past winner Marc Beaumont and the young Josh Bryceland. Scottish Champion Ben Cathro will also be leading the Clan army along with Joe Barnes and Chris Hutchens.

New for this year is the splitting of the Veterans and Masters categories, which means more total national champions to be awarded on Sunday.

The British Cross Country championships are also being run in Innerleithen this weekend. Both disciplines will hold finals on Sunday for a full weekend of top-notch racing.
