It's official: Scotland's World Cup races are the best on the planet
As Fort William gears up to host the first triple discipline round of the 2006 World Cup in May, the 2005 downhill and 4X events in the Scottish Highlands have been voted the best of last year...Again.
It is the fourth successive year that Fort Bill has won this award. The 05 event was watched by more than 18,000 spectators over two days of awesome competition with Brit riders Steve Peat and Tracy Moselely winning the downhills.
The award is based on the votes of competitors, officials and media from all over the world.
Mike Jardine from event organizers Rare Management said: "Four awards in four years is an amazing endorsement for Fort William and everyone involved. It's going to be tough to build on the 2005 weekend with the dream British double win in the downhill. But every year the Fort William World Cup has got bigger and better, so in 2006 we'll have to keep pushing forward."
The 06 World Cup hits Fort Bill on 26-28 May. Go to www.fortwilliamworldcup.co.uk
