Photo Gallery: 2019 Fort William World Cup Slip ‘N’ Slide

by 1

Fort William provided the goods again for this year’s round of the UCI Downhill World Cup, but before we move on to the next leg, let’s check out some the images we caught at the Nevis Range.

With a grueling track, extreme weather and crowds not seen at any other DH World Cup rounds on the calendar, there are plenty of opportunities to snap away and gather quite a collection of photographs. This year I spent a fair few hours over 4 days, prowling the pits and climbing the track to grab some photos. What I’ve curated below are a few photos that I feel give you an idea of what we all experienced at the 2019 Fort William DH World Cup, and I’d even go as far as saying there are a couple of “bangers” thrown in too.

If you’ve enjoyed our 2019 downhill WC coverage so far, and you would like to see us at more UCI World Cup rounds please let us know in the comments below.

What photography kit did I use?

I’m not a professional photographer by any stretch so you’ll see that my camera equipment isn’t Sven Martin level. Still, I do enjoy photography and I think a couple of the images go to show that you don’t necessarily need to spend £1000’s to get a good photo.

My kit included;
