Olympic cyclist on board at RIDE24
The overall event winners were a four-man team from the University of Birmingham, who completed 230 laps and travelled 552 miles. They were seven laps ahead of second placed TL Sports Events, while Outside5 Biketarts came third.
Speaking trackside at Goodwood Motor Circuit track in Sussex, Olympic gold medallist Chris Boardman said: “I think this is a great event. If people are looking for a personal challenge then it’s ideal and attached to a great charity.”
RIDE24, the UK’s only 24-hour cycling endurance track event, this year raised more than £70,000.
Event manager Sarah Stevenson said: “We are so proud of each and every rider who raced day and night to complete this mammoth challenge. A big thank you to everyone who supported this year’s event.”
