Mountain Bike World Champs Preview

Mountain Bike World Champs Preview - For immediate release.

With less than a month to go before the 2006 UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships are held in Rotorua the Vorb cycling website is proud to present an online preview of the event.

The venue for the Worlds is on the slopes of Mount Ngongotaha which saw a very successful dress rehearsal in March with the Oceania Mountain Bike Champs. The Oceanias was attended by some of the top riders in the world preparing for the Worlds, and we were there to capture the action.

The preview contains over 400 photos of the downhill, cross country and 4X courses featuring top riders such as Fabien Barel, Cedric Garcia, Sam Hill, Rosara Joseph, Sabrina Jonnier, Geoff Kabush, Kashi Leuchs, Vanessa Quin and many more. We also have some stylish videos from Dystopia Media and Styled Airtime showcasing racers, thrills, and spills on the downhill and 4X courses.

There’s links to import stuff like the official timetable, where to buy tickets and a guide to the local Rotorua trails. Over the next few weeks handy spectator guides will be added to help people find the best spots for maximum carnage, er… action.

For the Worlds themselves Vorb will be keeping a steady stream of up to the minute coverage flowing using mobile technology.
