At the World Championships in Mont-Sainte-Anne, Canada, the cross country, downhill and four cross racing is just part of the show. Many exhibitors, in and out of the cycling industry, come out to show their wares in a large expo area. At Mont-Sainte-Anne, there's also an atmosphere of fun and partying. Organizers are providing plenty of onsite entertainment in the form of concerts, pump tracks and rides with some top riders.
This photo gallery, by Dave McElwaine, captures some of the action, on and off bike, during the second day of competition.
