A 71-year-old man has died during the End to End Mountain Bike Race on the Isle of Man over the weekend.

Nigel Park came off of his bike while ‘traversing an obstacle’ on the course near Ballacraine.

The incident took place at approximately 12:30pm on Sunday 8th September.

Dad was a regular competitor and keen mountain biker, we are understandably devastated by his tragic passing but we take comfort in knowing he was doing something he loved alongside good friends.”
