Tracy to hold Olympic Torch aloft at Fort William!
Five times Fort William winner, 2010 World Champion and helping to secure a British women’s spot at this summer’s Olympic XC event in deepest Essex (thanks to a great result in the first XC Eliminator race in Houffalize) – what better credentials to hold the Torch when the flame visits Fort William on Saturday 9 June?
Whilst the Olympic Torch Relay cavalcade cruises through the Highlands, it’s appearance at the World Cup will be at the downhill start just before qualifying on the Saturday. So if you want to catch a glimpse of Tracy Moseley flying the flag and fanning the flame, plan your gondola trip to the top station carefully. There may be bigger queues than usual for the gondola on Saturday morning, so be organised!
