In a change to the original announcement by the UCI, the Fort William round of the 2021 Downhill World Cup will now take place on 22-23 May.
The 22-23 May 2021 is a date change from the original UCI announcement of 12-13 June. The date has moved to May to accommodate other events and enable a more efficient travel plan for the teams following the circuit.
There’ll be added excitement this year – as if more was needed – with Scotsman Reece Wilson racing in the rainbow jersey. Will he take the win at Fort William? Will it be a mud and midge fest, or will the earlier May date catch that weather window of perfection that we so often see in May?
2020 tickets are valid for 2021 although full refunds will be available until 30 November. Ticket holders will be contacted with more details in November. 2021 tickets will go on public sale in early 2021.
