Marking another achievement in ICARUS Sports’ ongoing expansion in the world of outdoor sports, the company has signed a European distribution and broadcast agreement with the BIKE Channel.
The BIKE Channel is the first television channel totally dedicated to the world of cycling, featuring sport, adventure, legends and insights from the world of bikes. In partnership with ICARUS Sports, the BIKE Channel will broadcast the XTERRA World Championship, XTERRA Pan-American Tour, XTERRA Adventure Series, as well as extended highlights of the XTERRA European Tour across the UK and Italy.
The XTERRA events feature swimming, mountain biking and trail running, giving endurance athletes around the world a chance to race in some of the most diverse, spectacular, and challenging natural environments on the planet – from tropical jungles to snow-covered alps.
ICARUS Sports has been awarded the contract for distributing each of these high profile cycling events in European broadcast markets, and is also the production and distribution partner for the XTERRA European Tour.
“We are really ramping up our production and distribution of cycling events,” said Jason Georgaris, ICARUS Sports' Chief Executive Officer, “and our partnership with The BIKE Channel links in to our appointment as a distribution partner for these XTERRA events, as well as being the production and distribution partner for the XTERRA European Tour. ICARUS Sports has proven we deliver to our commitments, usually exceeding our goals, so it makes perfect commercial sense for events and broadcasters to partner with us.
