WHOOP UCI MOUNTAIN BIKE WORLD SERIES AVAILABLE TO VIEW ON FLOSPORTS IN CANADA

Streaming platform set to bring the year’s best two-wheeled action into the homes of millions.





The WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series will be available to Canadian viewers via the FloSports cycling streaming platform - FloBikes. The move is great news for race fans in one of mountain biking’s spiritual homes.


Canadian Elite athletes had a superb season last year, particularly amongst the Gravity rounds. Jackson Goldstone (Santa Cruz Syndicate) was the only Elite male to score two wins in the UCI Downhill World Cup, Finn Iles (Specialized Gravity) held the overall leaders jersey in the same competition and Gracey Hemstreet (Norco Factory Racing) had a breakthrough Elite season.


In the UCI Enduro World Cup, Squamish’s Rhys Verner (Forbidden Synthesis) scored his debut win whilst Jesse Melamed (Canyon CLLCTV) was narrowly pipped to the overall title by Yeti Fox Racing Shox’ Richie Rude.
