Hi all

Im trying to find a list of 24 hour time trials that I can enter as part of a four man team in the new year, but am not having much luck. Does anybody know if there is a list of events published anywhere?

Cheers

    There is the National 24 Hour TT, but that is not a team event. You might find team 24 hour races, like around a race track, but it will be more of a road race I would expect than a TT.

    National 24 Hour TT is on the 25th/26th June 2011

    Thanks - I suspected as much re the team events but I thought I would ask. We would be using it for Race Across America training so the earlier in the year the better but that might not be possible judging by what events I have seen advertised.

    All 12hr TTs and the 24 are in the middle of the year to get maximum daylight. One of the 12s was run with an optional team event (as a relay) but I don't know if this is continuing.

    What about the mtb events - they have races thru the night ? OK different bikes and terrain, but should help your endurance.

    I think your best bet is one of those charity/sportive things like Ride24. It is a road race of sorts in that drafting is allowed, but from what I saw most people were riding alone or in small groups and it's really fragmented -- especially over 24 hours where people are in teams taking turns.

    Next year's event is at Goodwood I believe. Dunsfold and Goodwood are the most boring circuits imaginable though, unfortunately. :( Not sure how the timing works out for RAAM, but I suspect there's only one or two of these a year so you might be out of luck.

    That sort of thing is perfect but as you predicted the dates don't match up. Thanks anyway!
