UK Mountain Biking Hall Of Fame Launches With Help From Glass Frog Marketing
Patrick Adams & Jill Greenfield of Pacific Edge Events who came up with the whole idea explained:
Pacific Edge Events wanted to create the UK MTB Hall of Fame in order to show recognition of mountain bikers of all disciplines and also key figures in the mountain bike industry.
Over a period of time, these figures will have all made a significant contribution towards making mountain biking in the UK what it is today through sport, passion and sheer hard work.
When we first spoke to James McRoy about our plans he immediately offered the support of his company, Glass Frog, with social media. Glass Frog have been a great help in getting that side of the Hall of Fame up and running. Jim’s support was swiftly followed by what we call our Founder Supporters, a fantastic group of companies from the cycle industry who have completely got behind our Hall of Fame project. We thank them all.
Of the 12 inductees, Patrick said:
“These guys are all at the top of the tree in the UK mountain biking world. They are legends, not only here, but in some cases around the world. We felt it was time they were recognised for everything they have done that has shaped UK mountain biking into what it is today. They have built a sport on which an entire industry has grown. We are proud of each and every one of them”.
Here is the list of those special 12 that will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a special ceremony to be held tonight (Friday 22nd) at the Wiggle Mountain Mayhem event at Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire. The website address for the Hall of Fame is http://www.ukmtbhalloffame.com.
