About the Event

Info for Riders

Bring your wheels to the iconic Brands Hatch GP Circuit and race international rugby legends in the 8 or 12 hour thigh busting, soul-strengthening endurance team relay. Enjoy all day hospitality, great rugby banter with our participating rugby internationals, free massage and a chance to beat the boys up the killer hills! There are two lengths of challenge, a 12 hour and an 8 hour. Both will finish at 19:30. Teams of between 4-8 riders will cycle for as long as they want, before dipping into the pit lane to hand over the timing chip to the next rider on their team. The winning team will be the one that completes the most combined laps within the allotted time in each category. Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each category.
