This edition of the Adventure Show heads to Fort William for the 2015 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Plus there is a look ahead to the 2015 World Orienteering Championships.

The Adventure Show returns to the spiritual home of Scottish mountain biking, Fort William, for the 2015 World Cup and, with high winds and driving rain, there's no shortage of action. First there's the fast and furious 4X.

Then we head to the top of Nevis Range for the downhill, where the racers plummet 555 metres down one of the longest and toughest courses on the World Cup circuit. Also on this month's programme we find out what it takes to get to the top of this sport, as we catch up with British favourites Rachel and Gee Atherton.

We're celebrating the newly created John Muir Way with someone who's planning to run the whole 134 miles in under 24 hours and we're looking ahead to the World Orienteering Championships which Scotland is hosting this year.
