The 31st UCI Mountain Bike World Championships took place from 5 to 9 September 2018 in Lenzerheide. This is the fourth time that Switzerland has hosted the major international event. The event was a complete success – both the audience watching at home and those at the event could experience the action up close thanks to the latest technology.
The organisers of the Mountain Bike World Championships contracted Swisscom Event & Media Solutions to handle the event’s technical project management. Our Event Kit provided the organisers with a bandwidth of over one gigabit. We installed over 25 access points so that the organising committee, UCI and the teams could connect to the WiFi throughout the site. And last but not least, our Visio LAN solution ensured that the journalists and VIPs in the hospitality tent could follow events live from the racetrack and in top quality on several monitors.
