Arai World Cup cancelled; Scottish site possible replacement

One of the most well-attended events on the mountain bike World Cup schedule that last few years won’t be around come 2002. Without outlining any reasons the UCI has informed VeloNews that the World Cup stop at Arai Mountain in Japan has been cancelled. The downhill/four-cross event was originally slated for July 13-14. And though the UCI would not confirm it, a British mountain biking Web site is reporting that Fort William in Scotland has been chosen as the replacement site. Check back to VeloNews.com for updates, as more information becomes available.
