The third round of the Scottish Cross Country Series, to be held May 19 - 20 in Leanachan Forest, Fort William, will be the official test event for the new course built specifically for the upcoming 2007 UCI World Mountain Bike Championships scheduled for September 3 - 9.

A one lap time trial will be held Saturday, May 19, and a cross country race with a C2 classification will let Worlds hopefuls not only preview the course under race conditions, but also earn some UCI points at the same time.

The course features 4km of new singletrack, built by the Forestry Commission Scotland as part of the Witch's Trail network.
