Whether you’re a hard-core mountain biker or are just after an action-packed day out, join the huge crowds that’ll be making their way to Fort William for the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup.
For over a decade, professional mountain bikers have been returning to the Nevis Ski Range area in the Scottish Highlands for an adrenaline-packed weekend of world-class Downhill and 4-Cross action.
The Fort William event is one of a series of nine World Cups taking place across Europe and North America from April to August and has been voted the best event of its kind in the world by both riders - who absolutely love it here - and spectators alike.
The two day competition is a huge event in the mountain biking calendar and the World Cup Village at its heart creates a family-friendly festival atmosphere with loads of activities and entertainment to keep everyone captivated the whole weekend. The Downhill and 4-Cross finish in the heart of the village so you’re always close to the action and excitement.
