Mountain cycling is challenging, epic and edgy. You can join some of the events yourself, but if you’re in the mood to just bet on the races online, you can still feel a bit of the rush while accompanying these top 4 events.
We have already covered some of the main track races. Now, let’s go to the hills.
UCI Mountain Bike World Championships
These are the worldwide games in the fields of downhill, four-cross and cross country. They are usually held towards the end of the cycling calendar and have been hosted around the world, from Andorra to New Zealand or Sweden to Canada. Luckily, almost every single betting platform lets you bet on the World Championships.
BC Bike Race, Canada
This event is known for the incredible surrounding scenery, including forests and islands. Over the course of seven days, participants get to experience some of the best track that can be found in the world for cycling.
Canada is certainly one of the top destinations when it comes to mountain biking, and the Crankworx event is arguably the number one factor. It mainly consists in slopestyle and downhill racing.
It’s the biggest gathering of the mountain cycling community of the year and has been known as the Super Bowl of the sport. The four-stop event premieres in Whistler, coincidentally the location where the BC Bike Race ends.
La Ruta de los Conquistadores, Costa Rica
This is one of the most feared and respected mountain biking events of the world. Why? It’s a coast-to-coast race across Costa Rica from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Over the course of three days, athletes take on one of the most challenging endurance races in mountain cycling. The climate and the topography are no friends, especially the elevations.
However, participants get the chance to experience some of the richest territory in terms of biodiversity. This multi-stage race is considered to be the first of its kind.
