Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s a flying mountain biker! Two of Scotland’s young mountain biking hopefuls, Joe Barnes and Fergus Lamb, today descended on Aonach Mor sporting superhero costumes, as they prepare for the return of the Downhill Superheroes.
Nevis Range ski area, just outside Fort William will host the second round of the 2011 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Downhill and 4-Cross tour, which takes over the Highland town on 4th and 5th June. The sport’s Downhill Superheroes, from more than 25 different countries, will be joined by thousands of fans, as they return to the scenic Scottish Highlands for another adrenaline-packed weekend of world-class Downhill and 4-Cross action.
