Tribute to Manx World Champions 15 December 2005

    As 2005 draws to a close we are reflecting on a remarkable year for Manx sport which has seen us achieve not one but two world champions.

    On Friday 23 December at the Villa Marina we will be paying tribute to the magnificent achievement of Mark Cavendish who won gold in the cycling world championships in the Madison event and David Knight who is the F.I.M. World Enduro Champion.

    Minister for Sport, the Hon David Cretney MHK explained: “We are all enormously proud of what ‘Cav’ and ‘Knighter’ have achieved and hope that the Manx sporting public and others will come along to congratulate them and start the Christmas celebrations in fine style with a great evening.

    “I am delighted that Chief Minister, Donald Gelling MLC, has agreed to make presentations on behalf of Government to these Manx born heroes who have brought great credit to the Isle of Man at the highest levels of their chosen sports.”

    Admission to the Villa Marina is by ticket only. Tickets are available, free of charge, from either the Villa Marina Box Office or the Tourist Information Centre in the Sea Terminal. Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8.00pm start to the tribute evening.
