UCI World Cup Round 3 - Fort William

UCI World Cup Round 3 - Fort William

This weekend sees racers take their personal battle to the slopes of Aonach Mor, high above the Scottish highland town of Fort William, for the 3rd round of the UCI World Cup.
Fort William has become almost a hallowed name on the circuit. For the downhillers, it's one of the most physical DH tracks on the circuit and the new top section warms riders up straight out of the gondola station.

It's set to be an action packed weekend - for more details on the event, timings and tickets, they are all on fortwilliamworldcup.co.uk.

Photography

James Porteous, long time contributor to gravity-slaves and recently celebrated photographer is on site pointing his Nikon D3 at the riders, strobes at the ready. Keep an eye on his Flickr photostream through the weekend for some cracking images.

T'Interweb streaming video

For the live action, freecaster.tv is the place to be. Will we see an Atherton domination like Andorra? Will the commentary be as blinding? Tune in to see the 4X highlights below or wait till Sunday to catch the live DH feed.



C'mon the Brits!
