Shimano 24 logo

After the success of 24-hour mountain bike events, it's always been a mystery why there hasn't ever been a similar event for roadies... now there is. The Shimano 24hr Road Race takes place over July 12-13, 2008, on a closed circuit in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.

Members of each five-rider team will compete around the 8.7-mile circuit at the Sennybridge army training area - the team who complete the most circuits in the 24 hour period win the event.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
