The Manx Telecom End to End Challenge 2016
Welcome to the home of Europe's biggest and best single day mountain bike event, The Manx Telecom Isle of Man End to End Challenge.
This year sees the 20th edition of this unique event and consildates some exciting new changes, the gridded start used last year will see riders roll out in organized waves, the route through Ballaugh Plantation lifts the riders dramatically onto the heather-clad moors then it's the regular journey along dedicated forest trails, sweeping single track and grippy sharp climbs.
This year will again use the seaside finish in the picturesque resort of Port Erin. This will involve a sweeping descent from the cliff tops of Mount Bradda and finish amongst the crowds along the Promenade.
Over 1000 cyclists will travel from one end of our beautiful island to the other, don't be the one to miss out. For full details, go to the event web site at http://www.end2end.im/
