Top cyclists from around the world return once again to Windham, N.Y. for the 2015 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano.

Windham Mountain will host the eighth of nine UCI World Cup stops and is the only stop in the United States; other stops include Lourdes, France; Nove Mesto na Morave, Czech Republic; Albstadt, Germany; Fort William, Great Britain; Leogang, Austria; Lenzerheide, Switzerland; Mont Sainte-Anne, Canada; and Val di Sole, Italy.

Having hosted the event four of the past five years, the audience for the Windham World Cup continues to grow. Tens of thousands of visitors including professional and amateur athletes from more than 40 countries and six continents come to watch the best cyclists in the world take on the Windham Mountain courses and 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.

This event is organized by Windham Mountain along with the Windham Area Recreation Foundation and a team of hundreds of volunteers who come together to support this world-class event. This project is supported by a Market NY grant awarded to Windham Area Recreation Foundation by New York State’s Empire State Development and the I LOVE NY Division of Tourism under Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council Initiative.
