TAKING PART

 

Looking for a new event to test your team to the limit? You’ve found it. Cyclone Eleven24.

Can your team cycle 1124 laps of the Lee Valley Olympic Velodrome in just 8 hours?

Perhaps the most beautiful velodrome in the world, probably the most energy efficient, definitely the iconic venue of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

We are challenging you to cycle the distance from Lee Valley Olympic Velodrome to Wales’ National Velodrome. This is no mean feat, cycling 1124 laps of the velodrome track (281 km) in just 8 hours.

So, can your team go the distance?

We provide track bikes, helmets, electronic chip timing, mechanical support, physio support, energy nutrition, track coach guidance, refreshments and lunch.

As our event takes place during Wales Week in London we thought an additional challenge was in order. Subject to entries, we’ll be splitting teams into – Wales or London – depending on where you are based. At the end of the challenge the total distances of each team will be collated to see which region earns the bragging rights for the first Cyclone Eleven24. Will it be Wales or London? NB. If you’re not based in either location you’ll have to pick an allegiance!

Team entry is £1500 for a team of 6.

To enter your team simply complete and return a registration form along with your team deposit of £500.
