Beware of Mathieu Van De Poel who he had declared that he wanted to take part in both the road world championships and the MTB world championships: let's see if he'll keep his word.

The Fort William route is one of the most historic: there will be a lot to relaunch given that the track is not as steep as other tracks but we find it so natural and guided. It extends for 2,8 km in length with a vertical drop of 550m.

The Marathon is a specialty that can reserve surprises: the details of the route are not yet known but we understand that it could be a route suitable for powerful athletes as there are no very high peaks in Scotland.

Written by I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
