Shimano backs Singletrack Classic Weekender

Components firm becomes head sponsor
Publish date:

Shimano has signed up to become official title sponsor of the Singletrack Classic Weekender.

Taking place on July 9th to 10th 2011 in Lee Quarry, Lancashire, the Weekender is a light-hearted competition to find the best all-round mountain biker. Pitched as the ultimate all-rounder weekend of trials, downhill and XC racing, socialising is also high on the weekend agenda.

One entry fee gets participants access to three disciplines: XC, Downhill and ‘Classic’ Trials, with every performance counting towards a final overall position.

Kellie Parsons, marketing manager for Madison – Shimano’s exclusive UK distributor, enthused: “Shimano is delighted to be title sponsor for the Classic Weekender bringing a fun event with something for all kinds of mountain bike riders. Shimano and Madison are dedicated to supporting UK sporting events, as well as sponsoring professional athletes.”
