Fort William World Cup Downhill 2014 Gallery

Fort William World Cup Downhill is done. A weekend of sunshine and awesome racing, here’s a selection of our Dan’s favorite shots.

Ah the fancy dressers, each year they come out rain or shine to entertain and brighten up our day. And I think a few may get massively drunk as well. I bet you can’t guess who?

We saw these guys Sunday morning all with two litre bottles of water, I think they may have been a tad hungover.

Now for some riding shots.

There you have it, Fort William has once again produced an amazing weekend. It was the first time anyone has taken their first World Cup win of their career, at Fort William. Straight from Fort William, the World Cup moves onto round four in Leogang. Stevie Smith and Emmeline Ragot were victorious last year, will they be triumphant once more?
