This will be this year’s second-to-last race for bikers in the cross-country and downhill divisions of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup, following events in France, Germany, Switzerland and other locations. It will also mark Windham's fifth year as a host - a run that has been so successful, it has prompted the creation of a permanent bike park on the slopes of Windham Mountain.
Windham Mountain is less than a 5 minute drive from the Hotel Vienna, which enables our visitors to also attend the DJ laser light show and kids race that will be taking place on Saturday the 8th of August 2015. The days leading up to this will also feature a "Ride the Plank" challenge and Friday Night Block Party with a mechanical bull, magic show and outdoor bike movie. From Friday through Sunday you can also check out an extensive expo of mountain biking products.
