It’s that time of year again, and that means only one thing!! You got it!! Race season kick’s off again, going back to The Bill again for the 15th year since Tracy Moseley won there in 2002 and Chris Kovarik having the biggest winning margin there to date 14.02 sec!!
Fort William World Cup only gets better and better each visit, masses of history at this venue and it’s one hell of a place to be!!.
Around 20,000 humans make way for the mountain’s of the Nevis range, that in its self is something else!! Sunday the floodgates open and it’s then the atmosphere really kicks in! the pro’s having selfies with fans etc interviews and so on, all the while the racers are getting in the race mode to attack that super GNAR track to try and take that top step. This year we will see a lot of new changes from over the years, we have been told there are some amazing new features along the way!!.
Gondola assisted unless you want to walk it to the top and then get a lift back to the bottom? Either way its just amazing to be on the mountain side.
Aonach Mor, the 9th highest mountain in the UK. The track is around 2.8KM long and descents 555m, Riders need physical strength and fitness, bike skills and most of all they want to WIN!!.
If you’re on the mountain it’s a wise choice to bring some very good walking boots if taking it to the top, rain jacket, midge nets and spray, a good comfy backpack, food, water, umbrellas, sunny’s and sunscreen!! ;-).
Not forgetting Rachel Atherton and many of the other fast ladies out there!! Last year Rachel took a hard slam and dislocating her shoulder, tough and ready to have revenge? Another lady shredder that’s a danger to the other’s, what could the outcome be?.
A little something to look forward to and think about, it’s around the corner, keep an eye out on Instagram over the weekend!.
See you on the Mountain people!!
