Fort William, Scotland is gearing itself up for a return of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup on 6–8 June.
500 of the world’s top riders will battle each other on challenging courses in front of the usual large and enthusiastic Fort William crowd.
This year there will be added interest in the cross country races as the main Olympic contenders will be in their final preparation phase for Beijing.
New for this year's event is a move of the Four Cross race to Friday evening, a full programme of big screen action and some very unusual entertainment. Fort William will rock on Saturday evening with the biggest mountain bike party in the UK, the Party in the Fort.
