WMBC 2015 has been rudely cancelled by Forestry Commission in favour of an Altura sponsored race series. We were only informed of this cancellation when we contacted FC with regard to the 2015 event. The reason we have been refused permission is simply due to a ‘clash’ of sponsorship between the event and the trail in Whinlatter. Forestry Commission have not offered us an alternative date.
We would like to thank all our competitors for your enthusiasm and support over the years. Some of you have been riding our events since 2001 in Grizedale. Please accept our apologies for 2015, as we feel we have failed you and certainly didn’t want to end our involvement in MTB events in this way.
