The MTB event created by 24-hour enduro specialist Pat Adams for Shimano will henceforth be known as the Kona Sleepless in the Saddle.

Kona signs three-year deal as title sponsor for Sleepless

The deal runs through until 2007.

1800+ competitors took part in the event this year.

Kona importer Paligap has sent staff teams to compete at the three annual stagings of the Shimano-sponsored event.

As well as Kona, Paligap plans to also feature other brands at the 05 Sleepless, including Ritchey components and CycleOps turbo trainers.
