Am I the only one who missed this news? Tracy Mosley with the Olympic Torch...
The racing itself was almost overshadowed for me by another event that really was a once in a life time opportunity. The Olympic Torch was passing through Fort William on the Saturday and I had the honour of being chosen to carry the torch down part of the downhill course. I didn’t however realise that it was going to be an official torch as I had been told it was just a mini one to take up the hill ! It was an absolutely incredible experience to have the Olympic flame in my hand, riding my bike in a location that has been so good to me and given me so much success over the years. It couldn’t have been a more fitting place for me that get this opportunity. It also I hope showcased our sport and even though not included in the Olympics, downhill mountain biking for a short moment was in the eye of the world’s Media as the Olympic flame travels around the UK.
