Client:Rare Management

Mountain Bike World Cup

Annual event incorporating downhill, 4X races, and trials events with over 300 competitors and thousands of spectators.

Client Requirements

Event Managers Rare Management asked Tents and Events to provide the correct marquee infrastructure for this prestigious event.

Marquee Hire Type

Various marquees in a variety of sizes are provided ranging from a 6m x 6m unit at the start of the 4X Event up to a 12m x 40m Food and Bar marquee. Marquees are also provided for Crew, Media, First Aid, TV Crews and a VIP Marquee. Internal finish ranges from frame and covers only up to fully finished marquees for the VIP areas.


Fort William


Large scale infrastructure requirement within a tight space at the Gondola Hall with a lot of underground services to be avoided. Operational issues such as installing the 4X marquee half way up the hill.

Additional health and safety features are in place with wind monitoring initiatives at strategic places on the mountain to ensure that the marquee wind loading limits are monitored throughout the event.


We have supplied marquees for this event since 2005 and as with all our regular clients we have built a partnership that benefits all. Each year brings new improvements that Rare Management wish to incorporate – from a marquee in the forest up the hill or new layouts at the village in the shadow of the Gondola (one day we will find the time to go up and enjoy the view!).

The Clearspan marquees always maximise the space available and great care is taken to avoid the many underground services located new the Gondola hall with special weights used at strategic places.
