Believe it or not, there were a few naysayers that thought that the UCI might not award Fort William another downhill World Cup next year, perhaps due to the ‘weather’ issues in 2015. But no, the riders’ favourite race track, the fans’ favourite event and the the riders’ favourite fans are due to return for 2017. The dates and venues are still provisional, but are expected to be confirmed any day now by the UCI. So, here are the provisional dates so far as reported by Red Bull.
