Nearly 60 members of the International Mountain Bike Teams, Tech Support and Race Organizers Organization (IMTTO) voted to award the "Event of the Year" trophy to Rare Management for the third consecutive year.

In 2007, Rare Management organized the UCI Mountain Bike and Trials World Championships in Fort William, Scotland. The winner beat out 25 events with Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup finishing as the second best event and the top World Cup for the second consecutive year. Houffalize World Cup finished a close third and the top-ranking non-World Cup, non-World Championships event was the Roc d'Azur held in Southern France.

"The IMTTO aims to assist the events in their growth and therefore further secure the future of mountain bike racing as a viable sport for our members," according to IMTTO President Martin Whiteley.
