Tourism not turning its back on End2End bike race says MHK

MHK Geoff Corkish has told 3FM that the removal of funding to film the End-2-End bike race does not mean Tourism is turning its back on the event.

The decision to cut the £8000 was down to the event reaching its maximum potential with regards to entrant numbers.

He told us it was an expenditure that was no longer deemed necessary due to the events huge popularity, that’s been achieved in a relative short space of time.
