Leading UK outdoor equipment manufacturer, Vango, has just been announced as an official sponsor for cyclist, adventurer and broadcaster Mark Beaumont’s Around the World in 80 Days talk tour. 

Mark Beaumont has become a household name through his documentaries about ultra-endurance and adventure.  Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds the 18,000-mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day.  His epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, into the Arctic, the high mountains and around the Commonwealth, having also survived capsizing in the mid-Atlantic.

As sponsor of Mark’s Around the World in 80 Days tour, Vango is proud to be able to offer its customers exclusive tickets to the tour events.

Mark Beaumont commented: “I first worked with the team at Vango when I was a student at Glasgow University, so it’s wonderful to see how the brand has grown and evolved since then.  I have often used Vango kit when attempting my record breaking expeditions, so I am delighted to have a new partnership in place for my upcoming UK talk tour. I look forward to continuing my love affair with the brand and on embarking on many more adventures with Vango.”
