About BMX Freestyle Park
Where ordinary cyclists see obstacles, BMX Freestylers see opportunities. They fly superhero-high off ramps, ride on walls and flip the script of what’s possible on a bike every time they ride.

About BMX Freestyle Flatland
Imagine parkour combined with breakdancing… on a bike. That’s BMX Flatland. Riders have nothing but their bike and the blank canvas of a smooth surface to style and spin their way to a mesmerising medal-worthy routine that you have to see to believe.

About BMX Racing
The goal of BMX Racing is simple: cross the finish line first. But that’s easier said than done with eight riders and a complex course of high speed curves, big bumps and even bigger jumps between the start gate and gold medal glory.

About Mountain Bike Cross-country
After a massive crowd of riders pours off the start line, rough terrain, steep slopes and mud-based mayhem is the order of the day as they jostle for position, biding their time to attack in sprint finishes that separate the wannabes from the medal winners.

About Mountain Bike Cross-country Marathon
Riders will be pushed to the limit of human capability as they chew through 100km of road, gravel, punishing climbs, long descents and inhuman levels of lactic acid.

About Mountain Bike Downhill
It’s all downhill in Fort William where riders take on jumps, bumps, berms and rock gardens against the clock at white-knuckle speeds of up to 80km/h. The most fearless will bomb their runs. Others will bail. Only the fastest will win the Rainbow Jersey.
03 - 05 August 2023
About Para-Cycling Road
This is where the rubber meets the road for the world’s fastest and most fearless para-cyclists.
Every mile matters in ruthless contests of speed, stamina and guts. Smart racing will win the day as riders battle for every tactical advantage that will take them to gold medal glory.

Eleven events will be contested at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, each of them a unique challenge of power, poise, strategy and stamina.
Riders have to give everything they’ve got for every advantage because fractions of a second will determine who gets to go home a hero.
