*** Fort William 4X ProTour 2021 : Press Release ***
It is with sadness but complete understanding that we have to announce there will not be a 4X ProTour event at Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup in 2021. Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic; travel restrictions to Fort William and problems with accommodation, restaurants, etc are likely to remain in place in the lead up to this event.
The organisers of Fort William 4X ProTour: Rare Management have announced that IF the event does take place in 2021, there will be no spectators and very restricted access for riders and team members. After talks with Rare Management, the decision has been made not to host a 4X ProTour race at Fort William so that clarity can be given to the 4X riders and teams who are already planning for the season ahead.
Whilst we are sad to announce this news, we are stoked to confirm that we will be back at Fort William in 2022 for 4X ProTour on May 21st. We wish the Fort William organisers – Rare Management all the very best in 2021 and we sincerely hope they are able to host the DH World Cup. We will be back in 2022.
