Cycling - Mountain Bike
Thundering around an incredibly challenging off-road course, the mountain bike competition at Birmingham 2022 is a spectacle not to be missed.
An area of outstanding natural beauty will give way to high-octane, thrill-a-minute drama during our Mountain Biking competition.
Spectators will look on as finely tuned athletes combine their balance, athleticism and speed in this feat of endurance and bravery.
Athletes will plummet down steep sections, transition into smooth landings and push through uphill ascents.
Their mission is simple – cross the line first to claim the Gold.
Previous Commonwealth Games appearances
Mountain Biking has been contested at four previous Games. Manchester 2002, Melbourne 2006, Glasgow 2014, and Gold Coast 2018.
Mountain biking dates back to 1896 when the 25th Infantry U.S. Army Bicycle Corps rode from Fort Missoula, Montana to Yellowstone – a distance of 500 miles over rough terrain. Previously, such journeys were undertaken on horseback.
