Please note the following guidelines for all filming media.

Any non-filming media who is asking for an accreditation must sign the non-filming declaration. Accreditation will be denied without a signed declaration. To speed up the accreditation process on site, we kindly ask you to bring the non-filming declaration already printed and signed to the accreditation. Thank you. 

It is forbidden to film/record and broadcast moving images from the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup (even if this is for just 10 seconds or less for social media only), and to conduct video/audio interviews in the accredited area, with the intention to broadcast these on any linear radio or TV channel, website, or any other non-linear media platform (audio and video). 

Thereby, without any approval of the UCI, media are not allowed to film:  

  • behind the scenes 
  • training 
  • warm-up 
  • XCC short track or DHI qualification, (all categories) 
  • XCO and DHI final race (all categories) 
  • interviews on the venue or in the mixed zone 
  • flower/award ceremonies 

All users must register their wireless devices in advance via webtool FreqCoord. Wireless devices may not be used if they have not been registered. For more information, please refer to the fact sheet.

There are various media bibs for photo and video media professionals, which will be handed out at the media centre during accreditation on site for a deposit of CHF/EUR 50.00. These authorize – depending on the bib – access to the tracks, b-zone, or finish line. Please note that the local organizing committee (LOC) can only issue yellow and a very limited number of red photo bibs, but no video bibs. Please tick the box on the accreditation form if you are interested in a photo bib. For video bibs, please contact Susanne Lenz (see filming permission). 

There is no room contingent provided by the organizer for media representatives. Media representatives can book accommodation that suits them on their own. 

Media centre

The media centre is in a two-storey container building next to the Rothorn valley station and can only be entered with a valid media accreditation. Accreditation is available at the media office in front of the media centre.

    Lenzerheide weiterhin auf dem Weltcup Kalender der Mountainbiker

    Nach langer Ungewissheit ist endlich klar: Die internationale Mountainbike Elite kehrt im Sommer 2019 und 2020 nach Lenzerheide zurück. Während die Bündner Ferienregion im UCI Weltcup Kalender 2019 sowohl Austragungsort von Cross Country und Downhill Rennen ist, gastiert ein Jahr später, im August 2020, nur der Cross Country Tross in Lenzerheide. Wie bei den diesjährigen Weltmeisterschaften wollen die Organisatoren auch in Zukunft mit attraktiven Side Events ein einzigartiges Bike Festival schaffen.

    Gold for Austria, Great Britain and France

    The final day of the 2018 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz once again saw twenty thousand spectators heading to Lenzerheide, raising the total number of fans attending the races to 65,000.

    First Cross-Country gold in 17 years for the USA, home-town hero defends title

    The fourth day of racing at the 2018 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz in Lenzerheide saw the Cross-Country Elite Men and Women battling it out for the title. Following a cloudy and cold day, the Women’s and Men’s races went ahead under the brilliant late summer sun of the Swiss Alps with nothing but rainbows in the forecast. The 24,000 Swiss fans who made the pilgrimage to the shore of picturesque Lake Heidsee in Lenzerheide, were hoping for another successful day after three days of racing that all saw Team Switzerland winning gold. In the end Kate Courtney took the first Cross-Country gold medal for the USA since 2001 and local hero Nino Schurter (SUI) made history by winning on home soil to take his 7th UCI World Championship individual title in a close fight with Italian Gerhard Kerschbaumer.
