Méribel to play host to final round of UCI MTB World Cup 2014


UCI included this French venue on the calendar for the 2014 World Cup, choosing it for the final round.

The French town of Méribel will feature – together with Cairns, Australia – for the first time on the UCI MTB World Cup calendar in 2014. It is a well-deserved recognition to Méribel as an unrivalled setting for this sport.

The UCI MTB World Cup will come to Méribel on 23 and 24 August. The events in France will be important because the XC and downhill championships will most probably be decided there, and also because they will take place only ten days before the MTB World Championships in Hafjell, Norway. So Méribel will be the place where the favourites will put their strength to the test.

At Méribel – as well as in the rest of the World Cup rounds – Orbea will be represented by the ladies of Luna Pro Team, who will be fighting hard for victory. Who knows? Maybe one of them becomes World Cup champion here…
