SRAM owned RockShox has announced that it will be an official event partner with the 2017 UCI World Mountain Bike Championships, which is being held in Cairns, Australia. The iconic suspension manufacturer will provide event support for volunteers and officials, as well as areas on and around the course.
The 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships starts on Thursday 24 August and finishes on Sunday 10 September.
“We are very proud to be an event partner for the Cairns World Championships,” said Rob Eva, Sales Manager for RockShox. “RockShox has played a big part in Cairns since the ’96 Worlds, when Thomas Frischknect took the XC gold medal on a special edition gold Judy, and Nicolas Vouilloz rode a BoXXer to his second of seven Elite Worlds wins.
“We look forward to playing an important role in bringing a successful event to Cairns this year.”
