When you're taking a break from watching your hero's shredding and shralping down the EWS trails, we have the UK's biggest Race Festival of 2021 for you and your family to enjoy. 

The Festival Village is the hub of all Race Festival activity and right next to the Pro Stage.  Check out the brands, have a shot on the air bag, then grab a beer and tuck into some street food. More on the Festival Village >>

Get behind the scenes with the EWS teams, meet the riders and see the pros' bikes up close in the Race Paddock. Find out which teams will be there >>

Film nights, ride outs, live music and much more - find out what else you can do around Innerleithen during the Race Festival through our Fringe Events >>
