Nicolas Vouilloz, 10-time world downhill champion and winner of 16 World Cup races, is heading to Scotland for our Glentress Demo Day on Sunday 5 April.
The Mountain Biking UK crew will be there too, joining riders on the demo loop, answering questions and meeting their adoring fans (ahem).
After retiring from mountain biking competition in 2003, Nico started car rallying. He went on to win last year’s Intercontinental Rally challenge.
At the start of 2008 he joined suspension guru Olivier Bossard at Bos Engineering to help develop and test the company’s new fork and shock technology.
Nico has also been working closely with Lapierre on the design of their new bikes – a range which has proved popular at previous Demo Days.
At Glentress, he will help set the bikes up on the Lapierre stand and will be available for autographs, etc.
Head over to the Demo Day website now to book your demo rides from Trek, KHS, Cotic, Scott, Gary Fisher, Norco, Raleigh, Santa Cruz, Niner, Lapierre, Diamond Back, Pronghorn, Yeti, Ibis, Pace and Bionicon.
