After two MTB World Cups which were all about cross country, we’re back to the downhill – and one spectacular course, Fort William, in Scotland. Here’s the UCI trailer (weirdly light on Rachel Atherton! We ALWAYS want more Rach!)
Of course the women’s and men’s finals will be streamed live on Red Bull tv – here’s the stream, it goes live on Sunday 8th June, at 2:15pm BST (15:15 Euro CEST; 9:15am USA EST; 6:15am USA PST; 1:15am Aus AEST) and if you click through you’ll see the count-down to work out timings in other countries.
If you want to see what riders think about the course, here’s an interview with Madison Saracen‘s superstar Manon Carpenter talking about what the race means to her. (Want more Manon? Here’s a video following a day in her life training)
and I always always always love Claudio Calouri’s helmetcam course previews – here’s his Fort William video, on Red Bull bike.
