Danny MacAskill, a bike and a Highland Cow: it must be MTB World Cup time

Danny MacAskill, a bike and a Highland Cow: it must be MTB World Cup time

It was a first for trials cyclist Danny MacAskill – and a first for us too –  manoeuvring a Highland Cow into a photo shoot for a bike stunt with a difference.

Fortunately we had stocksman Matt Auld on hand to help us with Una Dubh who was on loan for the day from the Highland Cattle Pollok Fold.

Why? It was all to launch ticket sales for the Fort William leg of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and BUFF® 4X Pro Tour – the multi-award winning event in the Scottish Highlands which takes place on 6-7 June 2015.

The Fort William World Cup will host 300 of the world’s best riders from across 26 nations as they do battle on the steep slopes of Aonach Mor.

We can’t promise Highland Cows at the event but it will certainly be action-packed – tickets available at www.fortwilliamworldcup.co.uk.
