The slopes of Mount Vitranc above Kranjska Gora in Slovenia will again host an international mountain bike event. The European Masters Mountain Bike Championships - in cross country and downhill - will be held there in 2011, 2012 and 2014. This year's dates are June 24-26.
The Masters Championships were scheduled for Killarney, Ireland, but after they were cancelled, Slovenia stepped in. Kranjska Gora successfully hosted a similar event in 2009 - the European Downhill Championships for junior, elite and masters categories.
The downhill course will remain more or less the same as it was in 2009; however, a new cross country loop will be used - it was built in 2010 for a national-level event. It goes through sections of the bike park and also includes new purpouse-built forested sections.
Cross country races and downhill seeding will be run on Saturday while the downhill finals will happen on Sunday.
