We name the four riders who'll compete at 'the world's longest day race' as part of team road.cc including free entry and a dhb kit bundle...

We have been lucky enough to grab one of the team places for the now sold out Red Bull Timelaps and we've randomly selected four riders to fly the flag for team road.cc from all of you that entered. Not only do you get free entry into the race, you'll also receive a bundle of the latest All Weather clothing courtesy of wiggle's in house brand dhb.

And the winners are............

Thank you to everyone who entered to take part by commenting on the story and this was by far the largest interest we've ever seen for a day long race. From the sixty odd riders we've randomly selected the four we need who are;

  1.  @JoshOwenMorris
  2.  @ChrisB200sx
  3.  @jterrier
  4.  @Goldfever4

You should each have an email from Stu Kerton in your inbox now providing you with all the details about what to do next. 

 

What is Timelaps?      

"Spring forward, Fall back," goes the American saying about which way to adjust your clocks, watches and sundry other timekeeping devices twice a year. And the clocks going back in October provides the inspiration behind a new event, the Red Bull Timelaps, which will take place in Windsor Great Park and is claimed to be "the world's longest one-day bike race" - because it spans 25 hours.

Starting on midday on Saturday 28 October and finishing at noon the following day, the event will see up to 150 teams of four riders take on a 6.6 kilometre closed circuit inside the park in the shadow of Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

Only one rider from each team will be allowed on the circuit at a time, meaning that "participants will have to demonstrate a mixture of strategic nous, endurance and determination to overcome the challenge."

The winner will be the team completing most laps within the 25 hours - and to spice things up, laps completed on a special shorter circuit during a 'Power Hour' starting when the clocks go back at  2am will count double.

 

 

 

Stu knocked out his first road.cc review back in 2009 and since then he's chucked the best part of seventy test bikes around the West Country, a couple of them quite literally! With three alloy and two steel bikes in his fleet he's definitely a metal man (that'll be the engineering background) but is slowly warming to that modern carbon fibre stuff along with fat tyres & disc brakes.
It's not all nostalgia though, after spending the last few years in product design Stu keeps banging on about how 3D printing is going to be the next big thing and he's a sucker for a beautiful paint job too.

Can't ride it, but I live nearby so I'm hoping to pop by and support. I'll bring you some biscuits.

Was car doored on Thursday, out of hospital yesterday, had to withdraw from all my hill climbs, at a loss of what to do with myself. This might give a bit of focus!
