The Riders Cup was created to make the sport of Ice Cross Downhill more accessible to more athletes (male/female) worldwide. The races are open to all comers and give athletes an introduction to the sport under competitive conditions. The Riders Cup races are also open to the top athletes of the sport as well, who can earn valuable world championship points. The Riders Cup champion will be crowned at the end of the season, and all official Riders Cup races count.
