The Event

As summer shifts to winter, ride on as the clocks go back in the world's longest one-day road cycling race. Red Bull Timelaps challenges teams of cyclists to grab the last of summer riding on the weekend the clocks go back (Saturday and Sunday October 28-29), making it a gruelling 25-hour race against time.

As day turns to night and the clocks go back, the brave riders that won’t let darkness stop them will be able to make the most of the extra hour. At 02:00 a 'Power Hour' will be activated; riders will take on a shorter course where their laps will count double.

600 riders will compete in teams of four at the iconic Windsor Great Park, with one rider representing the team on the course at any given time. The team with the most laps wins.
