Olympic torch to visit mountain bike world cup
“It seems fitting that the torch will help celebrate one of the biggest and best sporting events in the Highlands, showcasing a great weekend of mountain biking, with riders from 35 nations and spectators from all over the UK.”
More Olympic torchbearer news
Today, I also noticed on Facebook that one of my favourite young GB skiers, the fab freestyle moguls skier Ellie Koyander, also has the honour of being an Olympic torch bearer.
See an interview I did with Ellie for Simply Piste website.
The Olympic torch is to go on a 70-day tour of the UK in the run-up to the London 2012 Games. It will arrive in Britain on May 18, 2012, before being carried the length of the country by 8,000 torch-bearers.
