Trail Description:

At the base of the Off Beat Downhill is the West Highland Wheelers 4X Course.

As the first ever venue for the 4 rider format on the World Cup, the course has special significance, and still stands up as on of the best courses ever used. Well known as a favourite with riders and spectators, the course is built and up-graded by the UCI 4X co-ordinator Phil Saxena and his Full Contact Racing boys.

It is a steep course, featuring whoops, doubles, step downs, big and small table tops, a 3/4 pack (called the 'lumpy bumpy'!), a floaty hip jump, and four huge bermed corners.

The size of everything can be intimidating initially, but once you get confident it is good fun and a real challenge. Anbody can ride it, but you need to be a confident jumper to get the best out of it. Hardtail or short travel jump bike recommended. Please don't ride up, or skid down. You will break the surface and cause water damage.
