World Cup returns to Dalby in 2011

UCI Cross Country MTB event set for slightly later date next year
Publish date:

The UCI has revealed that Yorkshire's Dalby Forest will once again host a round of the UCI Cross Country Mountain Bike World Cup next year.

The event will have a slightly later slot in 2011, taking place May 21st to 22nd.

Planning for the event is already underway, with the Pro Sprint Eliminator and Dalby Dare are both set to make a return in 2011.

"For this year's Dalby World Cup we brought together vast expertise from within the sport, the Yorkshire region and from partners such as the Forestry Commission but the event was very much new territory to us all," revealed Jonny Clay, British Cycling's Cycle Sport and Membership director (and event director of the World Cup). 

"UCI's decision to award the event to us again is the ultimate endorsement of the great joint effort of British Cycling and its partners that went into staging the event and also cements Dalby Forest's and Yorkshire's growing reputation as one of the best mountain biking destinations in the world.

"We are delighted that we have been given the opportunity to continue the long term legacy projects that this year's World Cup began and we look forward to seeing the world's best riders here in the UK once again."

Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: "I am delighted to be able to welcome the World Cup back to Dalby Forest. We had a fantastic family weekend this year and I am sure next year will be even bigger and even better. We look forward to welcoming people from around the world for another world class weekend in Yorkshire."
