Hundreds tackle 75km route

Elliot Baxter completed the Bikestyle End2End Mountain Bike Challenge in under three hours to claim victory.

He finished around eight minutes ahead of nearest rival, Simon Skillicorn, with junior Will Corkill rounding off the top three.

The 75km route incorporated 1,500m of climbing and saw competitors negotiate sweeping moorland paths, country lanes and forest singletrack from the Point of Ayre to Port Erin.

In the women's event, Fay Holland took the plaudits with a fantastic performance in 3 hours 55 minutes and 17 seconds.

Sascha Horsthuis and Emma Atkinson were second and third respectively.
