Telecommunications company People Telecom has signed up as headline sponsor for the 2005 Urban Polaris mountain bike event in Canberra, Australia on December 4, 2005. People Telecom staff have taken part in the last several Urban Polaris events and the company is opening a new office in Canberra this year.
Huw Kingston of event organizer Wild Horizons said, "It is great to have the pink shirts of People Telecom on board. It certainly gives us some interesting options for perhaps text messaging control locations! In reality 2005 should be a great year for the Urban not only with this news but also that the Urban will be one of the key events in the Brindabella Challenge, a big weekend of all types of cycle riding (road, MTB, BMX, unicycle...), racing and entertainment being promoted by ACT Tourism."
Polaris mountain bike events involve locating and navigating between checkpoints scattered over a wide area, and therefore require map-reading and planning skills as well as sheer bike fitness.
