UCI Mountain Bike World Championships 2023 – Fort William
August 5 @ 10:30 am - August 6 @ 5:00 pm€25
It’s all downhill in Fort William where riders take on jumps, bumps, berms and rock gardens against the clock at white-knuckle speeds of up to 80km/h.
The most fearless will bomb their runs. Others will bail. Only the fastest will win the Rainbow Jersey.
HOW IT WORKS
The course at Fort William is one of the most mentally and technically challenging there is.
Stretching to 2.8 km long, it drops 550m and every single rock on the way down could potentially end a rider’s run… and there are a lot of rocks.
Riders need to be strong, fit and fearless just to make it through the qualifying rounds. For the finals, the drama keeps rising as they make their way down in reverse order of qualifying quickness and fractions of a second determine their fates.
You definitely don’t want to miss the legendary Fort William finish, where a huge crowd waits to welcome each and every rider that masters the mountain.
