Isle of Man to host National Mountain Bike Marathon Championships

Fri, 10 Feb 2017

The Isle of Man will host the British Cycling National Mountain Bike Marathon Championships later this year.

The event will take place on July 30th, with competitors taking on a 100km lap of the Manx countryside.

The course will also include over 3,000m of climbing, with the fastest riders expected to need over five hours to complete the race.

Three times End to End winner Ben Thomas is the current men's champion, while former British road and time trial champion Sharon Laws holds the women's title.

The race will take place just a few weeks after the Island holds the British Road Championships.
