Chance to compete to ride with Lopes at UCI MTB CC World Cup

2pure and Ibis offer chance to ride with Brian Lopes

2pure is offering the chance for seven riders to cycle with Brian Lopes at this weekend’s Dalby Forest-set UCI Mountain Bike Cross-Country World Cup.

To enter, cycle fans have to join the Ibis UK Facebook page and write why they should take part in the ride, which will occur at 2.30pm on Saturday May 19th.

The four time Mountain Bike World Champion has had more UCI World Cup career wins that any other male mountain biker in the history of the sport, so the competition is likely to be popular.

The UK leg of the MTB World Cup takes place on Sunday May 22nd. A free-to-watch urban street race – the Pro Sprint Eliminator – starts the World Cup weekend off in Pickering on Friday May 20th before amateurs get chance to try the official MTB course out at the Dalby Dare on Saturday May 21st.
