As we move into the final races of this, the first season of the UCI Mountain Bike World Series, the new UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Overall Trophy has been revealed.
Made from Scottish Beech, pyrite crystal and polished brass, the Trophy encapsulates the history and heritage of world cup racing. The metal pyrite globe - a nod to the original glass trophy of the 1990’s - is clasped between the endurance and gravity arrows of the UCI Mountain Bike World Series, uniting the formats together.
The curved brass body not only creates the visual of a flowing trail, but immortalises each and every historic winner of the overall UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and Enduro World Series, etched by hand onto its matt brass exterior. History meets the future on the solid wooden base, where new winners' names will be inscribed. The beech wood - a symbol of the forest and our sports connection to nature. A connection to where we race.
Enduro is the first of the formats in the UCI Mountain Bike World Series to award the Trophy, when the enduro and e-enduro season draws to a close amongst Chatel’s iconic mountain ranges on Sunday September 17.
Next to lift the Trophy will be the marathon overall winners in Snowshoe, USA, followed by the cross-country Olympic, short track and downhill stars in Mont Sainte Anne, Canada on October 8.
The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Overall Trophy awaits. Who will be the first to see their name inscribed onto this iconic new symbol of the sport?
