Mercedes-Benz X-Class links with outdoor pursuits specialists  

In a demonstration of support for the wide range of events promoted by outdoor pursuits specialists, Boardsports Ireland, the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles division in Ireland has placed a Mercedes-Benz X-Class X220d pickup at the disposal of the organisation for the year ahead.

Within the range of all-action activities falling under the Boardsports Ireland umbrella are surfing, water sports, BMX cycling and mountain biking.

Viewing the linkage as one that ‘perfectly positions the X-Class in front of that generation of sports-active motorists for whom it was designed’, Fergus Conheady, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles said: “through this new partnership, the X-Class will bring added glamour and prestige to the numerous sports event with which Boardsports Ireland is associated”.

Dressed in specially-designed bespoke livery, the X-Class will be in use at a comprehensive programme of events that includes surf schools planned for Brittas Bay, Bundoran, Tramore, Dingle and Lahinch and mountain bike events scheduled for Wexford, Roscrea, Carlow, Wicklow and Sligo.
