After the shock decision by the UCI to drop 4X from the Mountain Bike World Cup Series at the end of the 2011 season After what will be remembered as the finest year for 4X in 2011 since the sports creation, we were pleased to announce that a new 4X Series was been formed. We were extremely happy to announce the launch of the ‘4X Pro Tour’.
The 4X Alliance worked closely with the UCI and race organisers to create the new 4X ProTour. We were stoked that some of the existing World Cup events have continued with their belief that 4X should be on the World stage after all these years. Houffalize, Val Di Sole and Fort William all hosted rounds of the 2012 4X Pro Tour alongside World Cup XC and DH during those weekends. Since then 4X ProTour has cemented itself as the World 4X Race Series.
Series organiser, Scott Beaumont said:
‘4X is a fantastic sport and to see the UCI just wipe it out of the World Cup when so many organisers, riders and fans love the sport just seemed crazy to me. Together with Chris Roberts, we worked hard to put together a new ProTour for 4X riders and were extremely proud to launch the series in 2012.
Now in 2024, we are looking forward to a future where we can help to grow 4X around the World. There are exciting times ahead. I have plans to add new events and locations into the future of 4X ProTour to take 4X racing to the streets and the public in venues all around the World. We look forward to seeing you all trackside in 2024.’
