Fort William goes East
In September, Guiyang in China held a Cross Country test event, with a view to applying for a future Mountain Bike World Cup. The UCI appointed Fort William organisers Rare Management as consultants to help the Chinese organisation prepare and run the event. This involved regular commutes to Guiyang and a team of 5 Fort William regulars working at the event, including a course team of 3 who created a weather-proof 4km course in 8 days – with the help of 50 hard working local labourers.
