WINNERS RIDING HIGH



Eight of the 80 Nevis Range gondolas will feature riders who have won
the UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cups at Fort William since 2002
in both the Men's and Women's Elite categories. British riders and
current Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup Champions Steve Peat (3
times UCI Downhill World Cup Champion) and Tracy Moseley (3 times
winner of downhill World Cups at Fort William), are two of the riders
to have their own branded gondola.

At the recent Scottish Downhill Association race (15-16 June 2007) at
Fort William (a test event for the newly upgraded downhill track at
Nevis Range) Tracy Moseley and Steve Peat - both of whom won their
races - unveiled their own gondolas in preparation for the upcoming
UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships. (please contact

Marian Austin of the Nevis Range Development Company said: 'Visitors
are surprised to find their gondola decorated with an oversized star
of mountain biking. The stickers are done in such a way that once
inside you can still see the fantastic view through them. We have
already seen some of our regular mountain bikers hanging back,
waiting for the 'Steve Peat' or 'Tracy Moseley' gondola to come around.'

The Nevis Range mountain gondola system, the only one of its kind in
Britain, was originally constructed on the mountain of Aonach Mor as
a way to transport skiers to the slopes. The six-person mountain
gondola makes Nevis Range the ideal Downhill venue, easily and
rapidly transporting riders and their bikes 550m up on to Aonach Mor
in 15 minutes.

Throughout the UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships,
spectators and riders will be able to take their seats on one of the
branded gondolas, possibly even next to the riders themselves, as
they ascend Aonach Mor to watch the best international riders start
their runs on the gruelling 2.82km track, one of the toughest and
most demanding courses on the competitive circuit. During the short
journey they will also have a bird's eye view of the downhill course
as riders hurtle down at breakneck speed.
