For the second consecutive year, the promoters of the World Masters MTB Championship have chosen the Sun Peaks Resort in the Canadian Rockies. Held over Labour Day weekend (September 2-3) near Kamloops, British Colombia, more than 250 athletes, 30 years old and over, will vie for the titles of UCI Masters World Champions.
Both downhill and cross-country titles in various age categories will be awarded at the championships. The downhill course will follow Bromont's traditional downhill trail, famous for its length (last year's best time was almost five minutes) and its finish that offers a spectacular view of the Canadian Rockies. For the cross-country race, promoters have decided to bring back the 2004 course.
