Photo ID 37 – Fort William MTB World Cup 2010, Saturday practice_, originally uploaded by mattmuir.co.uk.
Just to get you all warmed up for this year’s World Cup Downhill and 4X rounds in Fort William at the beginning of June (4th, 5th and 6th) Here’s some more photos from last year’s event that I didn’t get round to editing.
This year marks the 10th Birthday of the Fort William MTB World Cup Event. Following on from last year’s successful theme of ‘downhill rock’n’roll’ this year’s event is entitled ‘Downhill Superheroes’ and looks to be another massive success.
For many fellow togs (including myself) the annual procession up to the highlands will turn into an extended road trip this year as the Halo British Downhill Series Rolls into Glencoe Mountain Resort the weekend before. With a number of international riders such as former world champions and multiple world cup winners Greg Minnaar, Steve Peat, Sabrina Jonnier and Tracey Moseley down to ride, this looks to be one of the best rounds yet of this massively successful series.
Needless to say I’ll be up there with my assistant photographer, Gillian (yes, we’re going up in the world!) for both events so if you can’t make it to the highlands then look out for photo updates here.
Hope to see you all there!
