Red Bull Time Laps is a truly unique event! A 25 hour race through beautiful Windsor Great Park where teams of 4 battle it out from 12pm to 12pm, taking it in turns on course throughout the night. But where does the extra hour come from?? Well, the race takes place on the 27th/28th October, when the clocks go back at 1am, allowing those lucky races a whole extra hour of racing ;)
Dirty Wknd CC will again be turning out in force for the Red Bull Time Laps 2018, fully intending to ride around and around in circles to the best of our ability, having loads of fun whilst doing it! We will be entering multiple mens, women's and mixed teams into the event this year, and we want YOU to join us. If you're up for the challenge, please Email Us to put your name into the hat, and we will send you more info. Open to members and non-members, but members get priority.

How It Works
The race starts at 12pm on Saturday 27th October in Windsor Great Park. Teams of 4 enter the event, with one rider on course at all times, until 12pm the next day. The winning team is the one who completes the most number of laps in the 25 hours. The '25th hour' comes at 1am, when the clocks go back an hour. This is called the 'Power Hour', and during this time all laps count for double.
Teams must work out a strategy of who is on course when, a sleep rotation etc. Tactics are very important and can make or break your race. We will of course help out with tactics and organisation for our teams, giving you the best chance to smash (and enjoy) the event. We will also have multiple teams stationed next to each other in the riders area, so the atmosphere and camaraderie will help to keep spirits high throughout the night.
What We Need From You
If you want to join one of our teams you simply need to Email Us to express your interest. We'll then send you more details to confirm your place. Team entry is £250 split between 4, but we will be subsiding the entry cost for members. We'll explain more in the details email.
So if you're looking for an autumn challenge, Red Bull Time Laps might be just the late season event you're looking for. Taking part with other members of the club is also the best way to enjoy the event. Trust us, at 3am you need some friendly faces to help!
