Bromont : Back on the UCI World Cup Scene
Bromont (Canada) will host the UCI Nissan Mountain Bike World Cup (XCO#7 and DHI/4X#5) from 1 Ë† 3 August 2008. The small Quebec town is far from new to the mountain bike scene, having already organised the UCI World Championships in 1992, UCI World Cup events in 1993, 1996, 1998 and 1999 as well as the UCI Masters World Championships in 1999 and 2006. For this occasion, three new circuits will be designed and set up. The downhill and 4X tracks will be permanent, adding a significant attraction to Bromontâ€šs National Cycling Centre.
Marathon : Ornans Replaces Innsbruck
The final of the UCI World Cup Mountain Bike Marathon will take place in Ornans (France) and not in Innsbruck as previously announced.
Finally, only two Marathon events are registered on the UCI World Cup calendar next year; the first will be held in Manavgat (Turkey) on March 16th, and the second in Ornans on October 4th.
