The UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships 2007 to tour the country

THE WORLDS ON TOUR

Organisers of the UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships 2007
– powered by Nissan Sports Adventure – being held at Fort William
from 3 to 9 September, will be taking the event on the road this
summer. The aim is to raise the profile of the first ever Mountain
Bike World Championships to be staged in the UK and promote interest
in the sport at all levels.

With a branded trailer pulled by the World Championships Nissan
Navara and an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team, organisers will be
visiting a number of events, mountain bike centres and city centre
venues throughout the country in June, July and August.

Bike and outdoor enthusiasts will be able to find out more about the
World Championships; watch extreme race footage from UCI Mountain
Bike World Cup events at Fort William; buy exclusive Worlds
merchandise (at selected venues only); enquire about travel and
accommodation; find out how to ride the World Championships courses;
pick up some on the spot giveaways; or just hang out and have a chat
about mountain biking in Scotland over a coffee or a can of Red Bull.

Visitors to the trailer can also enter a competition to win holidays
from cottages4you and a Carrera Banshee X mountain bike supplied by
Halfords Bikehut, the UK's biggest bike retailer.

Although the trailer was previewed at the Bike Show in Birmingham in
April, the summer tour will kick off with a visit to the '10 Under
The Ben' mountain bike event at Fort William on 9 June. This
endurance event will see six hundred solo and team riders take on the
challenge of a 10 hour race, riding a 10-mile mountain bike cross
country course at the foot of Ben Nevis, sections of which will be
raced on the World Championships cross country course.

Other events the promotional trailer will be visiting include the SDA
Series Downhill Event, Fort William (16 &17 June), Mountain Mayhem,
Ledbury (22 – 24 June), The Edinburgh Rat Race (14 & 15 July),
Tulloch Inverness Highland Games (21 & 22 July) and the Merida
Marathon, Selkirk (4 & 5 August). The Worlds team will also be
visiting Glasgow and Aberdeen city centres and selected Halfords
Bikehut stores in Scotland.
