The National Mountain Bike Marathon Championships will return to the Isle of Man in 2018, British Cycling has said.

A spokesman said the decision was made after a “successful first year in 2017” and that the championships will again be run by the Manx Mountain Bike Club.

It will be held over one 100km loop with a variety of terrains and 3,500m of climbing in the Manx countryside.
