The eyes of the mountain biking world will once again turn to Pocahontas County this September, when Snowshoe Mountain Resort plays host to the 2021 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Finals. The event will feature both downhill and cross-country racing, with UCI's season long titles up for grabs. Snowshoe will serve as the lone North American venue on the circuit this season.
West Virginia's Allegheny Mountains provided the perfect backdrop for what many have called "the greatest downhill race of all time" back in 2019. The event put mountain biking in "Almost Heaven" on a global stage, and Snowshoe Mountain Resort was rewarded Pinkbike's coveted "Event of the Year" title. Will this year's rendition be able to top the intense drama of the last go round? It's a tall order, but one thing is for certain - you won't want to miss it!
