The Battle of Sky Hill XC MTB Race

– Saturday 13th May 2017

Isle of Man Cyclefest’s cross country mountain bike race will start and finish at Milntown Estate and boasts a leg-breaking ascent of nearby Sky Hill, site of the bloody battle between the Manx and the invading Vikings in 1079.

Competitors wind their way around the hill’s contours before descending through its challenging forest-lined single-track network before another lung-busting ascent over the heather-clad moorland.

With hazards and obstacles at every turn, the Battle of Sky Hill will ensure a worthy victor stands on the Cyclefest podium at the end of the day!
