Traquair XC (18km, Red)
A trail not for the faint-hearted! It starts with a leg-burning and lung-busting climb up to the top of Minch Moor and then leads into swooping singletrack with optional black-graded features. There are tight, technical sections, and the fast, steep final descent filled with berms and jumps guarantees you finish with a smile on your face.
Downhill (Various, Orange)
The Innerleithen hillside is a rabbit warren of trails. The main DH tracks are the fast Matador, the natural-feeling Gold and Cresta runs, and the aptly named Make or Brake, a track filled with doubles and drops. Innerleithen regularly hosts rounds of the British Downhill Series and the Scottish Downhill Series.
