There are hills. There are munros. Then there’s Nevis Range.
Standing extremely tall as one of the sport’s most legendary mountain runs, it can’t be beat for its sheer spectacle and downhill drama. A course that’s as technically challenging as it is terrifying, only the courageous have any hope of conquering it.
Make sure you’re part of the huge crowd that gives every rider a hero’s welcome as they fly across the finish line at full pelt.

The course was first created in 2002 by a grassroots group of enthusiasts and since then has hosted every annual UCI Downhill World Cup.
Thanks to its storied history, no downhill career is complete without a win at Fort William.
Nothing comes easy on this course. One of the longest on the circuit, it’s notorious for deep holes, big drops, mud and punishing sprint finish.
Riders can reach speeds of up to 55km/h as they dash their way down. The only thing higher than the 20m jumps will be heart rates. One rider recorded a max effort of 195bpm on a qualifying run.
