One of road cycling’s toughest races has become even tougher with Red Bull Timelaps, the world’s only 25-hour bike race, introducing a solo category for 2019.
Returning for a third year across the 26th and 27th of October, 1,000 riders will either compete solo or as part of a team of four on a custom 6.6km closed circuit at Windsor Great Park - with the aim to complete as many laps as possible. Registration for Red Bull Timelaps opens on July 30th.
The solo category will be open to riders who have prior experience of competing in solo 24-hour races, with entry at the race organiser’s discretion. Solo riders must bring a support crew member to assist in the pits and to be the point of contact for the race organisers.
In the team category, only one rider from each team will be allowed on the course at any point, meaning participants have to demonstrate a mixture of strategic nous, endurance and a determination to push their body to the limit.
The infamous ‘Power Hour’, held between 2 am and 3 am when the clocks go back, will again give riders the chance to count one lap as two, adding to the importance of strategy throughout a long day in the saddle.
The event will once again be held at the beautiful Windsor Great Park, situated just outside of London. The park’s well-surfaced, undulating and traffic-free roads will provide the perfect location for the race.
Entries for Red Bull Timelaps open at 10:00 am on July 30 with team entry costing £340. There will be 250 team entries available (1,000 riders will compete in teams of four). Solo entry is £85.
Team Entry: GBP 340.0
Solo Entry: GBP 85.0
