Since 2009, one comes from far to ride the largest number of laps in 24 hours and to live the unique experience of a relay by night on the Bugatti circuit. Open to all in teams of 2, 4, 6 or 8 people, and even as a solo rider, more than 2100 riders are meeting up each year.
After the attendance record reached in 2017, when 500 teams took the start, the organizer will limit this year the participation to the first 520 registered teams, including a maximum of 100 singles and 50 pairs. A first time in the event history!
The objective declared by Romain Gasnal (CGO Événement) is clear: «The cohabitation is good because the track is wide (12 to 15m), and the six addional pits built in 2016 makes the paddock even more comfortable, but we want to control the attendance and thus guarantee the riders' comfort».
Many surprises are already in the boxes! The «Pasta Party» (Friday dinner) will be replaced by the «10 years Aperitif», which will precede a giant barbecue. Contestants will share a friendship drink before the weekend' rush.
Philippe Guillaume, Shimano France marketing manager, distributor of the Pearl Izumi brand (www.pearlizumi.com) continues: «Cycling is a matter of passion. What a better event than the 24 Hours Cycling to demonstrate it? In just a few years, the race has become a reference for cyclists looking for a unique experience. PEARL iZUMi is proud to be beside the 24 Hours Cycling to help them blow their 10 candles! And especially to accompany cyclists during these two clock turns, whether they have a competitor soul or they wish above all to live a great human adventure».
REGISTRATION NOW with a special rate until 28th February.
