British Cycling Announce MTB Teams for UCI World Champs

Find out who will be racing in Cairns this September for the World Championships

It’s what the race year builds up to, the UCI  Mountain Bike World Championships. After racing the rounds of the UCI World Cup, the final blow-out event this year will take place in Cairns where riders will race for their country on some of Austrailia’s most relentless tracks.

This year has been anything but predictable so far. The reigning queen of downhill, Rachel Atherton took a heavy hit at Fort Bill that ultimately broke her winning streak and left the competition wind open for four different winners to take the top spot.
