@JCU 2017 Mountain Bike World Championships
JCU is hosting the 2017 Mountain Bike World Championship at our Smithfield campus in Cairns from 5 – 10 September 2017.
The Mountain Bike World Championship builds on the two World Cup’s that were held in 2014 and 2016. It is anticipated that the World Championship will attract increased athlete participation with many more competitors, support teams, media and sponsor delegations. Spectator numbers are estimated at over 35,000 people, compared with 14,000 spectators at the 2016 World Cup.
In addition to providing a unique opportunity for JCU students, staff and our local community to get involved in an international event, the World Championships also provides strong economic benefits to our region through the thousands of fans and spectators visiting from around the world.
