This year's Red Bull Foxhunt will see 550 riders compete against each other and three of the biggest names in the world of mountain biking, who are assuming the mantle of the Foxes: Gee Atherton (Multiple World Cup and Championship wins), Loic Bruni (UCI World Champion) and Greg Callaghan (Ranked No.3 in the world at the 2017 Enduro World Series).


A daunting task for anyone - but MountainBikeNI have spoken to the one man who has won the Foxhunt an amazing 3 times; Colin "Rosco" Ross.
