Mountain Bike Racing Returns to Windham NY! Top cyclists from around the world will return once again to Windham, N.Y. on August 6-9 for the 2015 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano. Windham will be the only United States World Cup race. Having hosted the event four of the past five years, the Windham World Cup has attracted tens of thousands of visitors (including nearly 5,000 professional and amateur athletes) from more than 40 countries and six continents to watch the best cyclists in the world challenge the Windham Mountain courses or to participate in the amateur races themselves. This year, Windham is one of only four sites to host both disciplines on the race circuit: Olympic Cross-Country (XCO), a loop of narrow, rocky paths through forests and streams and Downhill (DHI) where riders race the clock on a treacherous descent. The Windham World Cup courses epitomize the legendary aspects of “East Coast riding” in the U.S. The latest addition to the many new amenities at Windham Mountain Resort is the Windham Mountain Bike Park, which features half-dozen trails including a pump track and skills park that will allow the casual cyclist to ride alongside the elite athletes during the World Cup festival. In addition to the elite races, there is a full schedule of community events including an indoor/outdoor expo, a block party in downtown Windham, a concert, Race the World amateur cross-country and downhill races, a Kids’ Fun Race and more.
