The Road to Fort William

Last week I made the long drive North to Fort William for the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. It’s an event that attracts over 20,000 downhill fans to the sides of Aonach Mòr every year and one that I was again commissioned to photograph for a mountain bike magazine. It’s always one of my favourite events of the year, the crowds, the riding, the location, all add up to a week long buzz!2013 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Fort William June 9thSpending three days running up and down the sides of the mile long downhill track meant I didn’t get my long runs in. Although that being said, with 25kg of kit on my back and working 14 hour days probably makes for quite good ultra training.

I took the Monday to recover a little with a short run on the way home and finally a wash fitting for a king!
