In 2002, Fort William hosted a downhill and 4X World Cup and this year a cross-country round is being added. This 2.5 hour event will take place in the Leanachan Forest that surrounds Nevis Range.
Mike Jardine, from event organisers Rare Management of Edinburgh, said:
"Everyone involved in putting on the event is excited about a bigger and better 2003 World Cup. The introduction of Cross Country will create new levels of interest and bring all of mountain biking together for a great festival in the Highlands. Our immediate challenge is to put in place levels of funding to ensure another event of the highest quality."
