At the Dekra Lausitzring in Germany, Sub7Sub8 is now finally for real and you can follow every second of it live on

We’ll bring you live updates, colour and analysis as Kat Matthews and Nicola Spirig bid to go under 8 hours for the iron distance while Kristian Blummenfelt and Joe Skipper aim to dip under 7 hours.

The much-hyped event has created plenty of debate already within the sport, particularly around the draft-legal element and the use of pacers.

What it does mean is huge crossover with other sports – some of the world’s finest time trial cyclists will be a big part of Sunday’s show. This is not just a time trial, it’s also two races and four elite teams all battling for glory.

When does Sub7Sub8 start?

The women’s race will start first, at 0700 local German time – that’s 0600 in the UK and 0100 on the East Coast of the United States.

The men’s race will commence one hour later at 0800 local German time – that’s 0700 UK and 0200 Eastern Time.


How can I watch Sub7Sub8 live?

There will be an official live stream of the event on YouTube and Facebook, and we’ll embed it right here at the top of this page before the start on Sunday morning.

That means you can watch all the action and enjoy our live blog on the same page. The official broadcast begins at 0630 local time, 0530 in the UK, 0030 Eastern Time.


What are the rules for Sub7Sub8?

Very simply put, the event is draft-legal but teams cannot draft off each other. Each team is allowed 10 pacers and these pacers can be used on multiple legs of the race.
