7000+ spectators at Fort William DH event

Steve Peat injured his ankle in yesterday's 4-Cross event but still finished a respectable 19th today. Of more direct interest to the trade, though, the Scottish weather turned out to be as glorious as could be expected and 7000+ MTB fans went home sunburnt and happy..

Mike Jardine from event organisers Rare Management said:

"The World Cup Downhill proved to be a spectacular climax to the most amazing weekend of

mountain bike racing. The 7000 plus crowds flocked to the Nevis Range, lining the 2.6km course from top to bottom, creating a unique atmosphere for riders and visitors alike.

"With glorious weather all weekend this has been a truly fantastic world class event for the Scottish Highlands and for the UK."
