Volunteer for Crew
The World Cup only happens thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of the World Cup Crew – the volunteers who congregate in Fort William every year to deliver the best mountain bike event on the planet. There are a range of roles – from keeping the site tidy to marshalling, from checking VIP access to being a Doping chaperone. Every single crew member plays a vital part in the overall success of the event.
Applications for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup: Fort William are not yet open. Please consider following us on Facebook for updates regarding volunteering with us in 2020.
Any questions, drop an email to Amanda: firstname.lastname@example.org
