When the event was launched in August, I said that I was certain that Red Bull Timelaps would sell out – and it has.
Here are the full details on the one-day, ’25 Hour’ cycling event.
Entries to the inaugural Red Bull Timelaps race have now sold out. In its first year of launching, the world’s longest one-day road cycling event will see 600 riders ride on as the clocks go back by racing against one another in a gruelling 25-hour race across Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th October 2017.
Hosting a mass participation road cycling event for the very first time, the race will take place on a 6.6km closed circuit on well-surfaced and traffic-free free roads within the stunning Windsor Great Park.
Competing in teams of four, comprising of Male, Female, Mixed and Junior categories, riders will battle it out to see who can complete the most laps within the time frame. With only one rider from each team allowed on the course at any point, participants will have to demonstrate a mixture of strategic nous, endurance and determination to overcome the challenge. At 2am an added twist will then come into play. Dubbed the ‘Power Hour’, riders will take on a new extended circuit where their laps over the following 60 minutes will count double.
Missed the chance to ride in this year’s event? Don’t despair as there is still plenty to do for those not taking part in the race. Spectators are encouraged to come and support the riders and help create the unique atmosphere found at all Red Bull events. There will be food and drink stalls to keep attendees well fuelled throughout the weekend, and a number of industry brands will be on site to entertain spectators and teams.
