Despite the odds, there will be UCI MTB World Championships events this year and they are in fact upon us! The UCI Road World Champs went off successfully and now its time for the kings and queens of dirt to take to the mountains of Leogang, Austria, in the epic battle for the rainbow stripes! There are lots of events and plenty of South Africans who will be repping the flag and taking on the best in the world! Have a look below for the week's lineup of events and who's entered to race for the green and gold. It looks like South Africa will not be getting Red Bull TV live streams this year, for live coverage you will have to go to Super Sport.
