Fort Bill and Dalby Forest World Cup events were voted best in a poll of teams, media, sponsors and UCI officials

Brit MTB comps top UCI poll

At the end of each season, a trophy is awarded by the UCI to one of the organisers in each of the three disciplines: Olympic cross-country, downhill and four-cross.

The 2010 edition of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Presented by Shimano included six rounds for each discipline for a total of nine events. Of these events, three made their début on the calendar: Dalby Forest; Leogang of Austria and Windham of New York State in the US.

Winner of the poll for Olympic cross-country was Dalby Forest, an event organised by British Cycling.

"The British event convinced all connected with the event," said a statement from the UCI. "The riders praised the very technical course, the teams the perfect organisation and the short track event and the media the quality of the infrastructure at their disposal."

Winner of the poll for the downhill event was Fort William, an event organised by Rare Management.

The UCI statement said the win was because of "the smooth organisation carried out by Rare Management and the thousands of spectators that regularly turn out for this Scottish event."

In the Four-Cross, Windham of the US took top spot.
