2018 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships to Varese (Italy);
2019 UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Championships to Grächen (Switzerland);
2020 UCI Mountain Bike Cross-country Olympic World Championships to Albstadt (Germany);
2020 UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Championships to Leogang (Austria)."

Awesome! Said no one...

Maybe Aaron will finally shake the World Champ monkey off that year with a chainless run in which he also gets a flat, but still rides flat out.

I'll concede this: If they cut a new track, IN THE WOODS, not in cow pasture with fireroad traverses, that race would be sick. The woods off to the rider's left are mad steep and so sick; it could potentially remove the #notschaldming stigma.

I'm not the biggest critic of the UCI,but DH is in much need of a new life.

So they've decided 2020 champs before 2019? Makes sense...

XCO and DHI should be in the same place. Splitting it up does not help.

Fort William, one of the best MTB events of the year hasn't seen a World Champs since 2007.
