TO COMPETE, FOR A CHALLENGE OR FOR CHARITY
Revolve24 is an exciting new series of Endurance Cycling Challenges with our signature 24hour event the centrepiece of sporting and charitable endeavour. Competition and meeting a challenge are here for you - but so is having fun and making new friends.
Our ultimate aim is to provide inspiring, extraordinary and affordable cycle relay events around the world on Iconic Motor Circuits - currently we run our events on both sides of the world:
- Brands Hatch, Kent, UK on 16/17 September 2017
- the brand new motor circuit at The Bend Motorsport Park, 1 hour east of Adelaide, Australia (in association with the Santos Tour Down Under) on 13/14 January 2018
Fast surfaces, racing lines to be learnt, challenges to be met and a chance to meet other riders or renew old friendships.
Our weekends of cycling can also include other formats including 24 hour, 12 hour and 6 hour Endurance Relays as well as Team Time Trials and Sportives. Some of these events will require Cycling Federation licences - though our Challenge events do not.
With participants so far aged between 16 and 70 we have something for everyone.
Team Endurance Relay Formats
Revolve24 endurance events are open to soloists and teams of up to eight riders (depending on the duration of the challenge). As much a mental challenge as a physical one, the weekend is as much about the environment in the paddock and pit garages as it is about the action on the track.
Non-competing Crew Members are welcome to add encouragement, strategy and support throughout the weekend which can be as rewarding as actually taking part.
We typically run three endurance events during a weekend - 12 hour and 6 hour challenges as well as the 24 hour - so whether you want to ride in support of someone in a longer event or simply give it a go there is a choice.
Prizes are awarded equally for men and women, and Kings and Queens of the Mountains and Fastest Laps also get acknowledged.
We understand that getting teams together can be hard so even if you are one short you can enter and fill the space later - or let us try and do that for you.
We have developed our own App to allow participants and our partners alike to enjoy a F1 experience - training & qualifying performance via our pre-Challenge Grid, live tracking during the weekend plus a unique live Charity Grid all linked to social media so your friends and family can follow your progress.
Whether you are competing at the front of the race or simply amongst your own team - there are loads of bragging rights to be had from holding the fastest lap record, or most laps done.
Variety of Race Packages
We aim to provide packages that allow all levels of riders to enjoy the experience of these amazing circuits. Free Parking and Camping are usually included, as are 24 hour snacks, professional marshalling, pro-chip timing, insurance and necessary medical facilities.
As well as standard entry packages we also offer Charity Places (UK events only) that offer great value for money as well as additonal items or services not included in the standard. So you do something great and worthwhile, have a laugh and maybe win a few prizes along the way.
Additional items can be bought on-line (such as pre-erected tents, VIP Paddock passes and cycling clothing), whilst other items such as motorhomes, personalised cycling clothing for your team and even helicopter transfers can be arranged by getting in touch with the team
