In 2008 MTN joined Mazda as a co-sponsor of the 12-event series, which had been sponsored solely by Mazda for six years since its inception.

"MTN is proud to build upon its commitment to cycling in South Africa and the sport of mountain biking through the acquisition of the full title rights for the Mazda MTN National Mountain Bike Series," said Anthony Garstang, senior manager: MTN SA sponsorships. - Sapa
