End2End MTB challenge gets further MT support

Company signs up for another two years

The End2End Mountain Bike Challenge is to receive another two years of sponsorship from Manx Telecom, it's been confirmed.

MT became the title sponsor in 2013, starting a three-year deal.

That original one ran out this year, meaning the new one covers the races in 2016 and 2017.

This year's event saw around 1,100 riders tackle the 46-mile course, which ran from the Point of Ayre to Port Erin.

Kate Evans, chairperson of the End2End organising committee says they are delighted to have MT on board for a further two years.

She says the company's support has been tremendous so far, and the event has developed quite considerably since MT came on board.
