Video and media from the 2016 Fort William MTB World Cup

Round 3 of the 2016 Downhill MTB World Cup was in the uncharacteristically sunny Fort William, Scotland – an emotional day, the first World Cup since legend Steve Smith died, but riders racing their hearts out in his memory.  If you missed any of it, here’s my collection of media I’ve found, focusing on the women’s racing – and as always, if there’s anything I’ve missed, please do tell me in the comments, or on twitter, and I’ll add it in.

Let’s start with the full race replay, thanks to Red Bull Bike – and their 5 min race highlights video too.  More short highlights from the UCI:
