The Fort William World Cup trophies have been created by Kenny Wilson using parts from Dirt editor Mike Rose's bike collection with slate from the local mine at Ballachullish and coloured resin for the thistle head. They can also be used as a weapon if a scuffle breaks out in the Cruachan Hotel, which usually happens.
