When the news of a 24-hour road race was announced back in November, word quickly spread through the road cycling community. This has to be one of the most hotly-anticipated events in the British calendar ever - and now entry for the event is officially open (entry form below).

The Shimano 24 Road Race takes place over July 12-13, 2008, on a closed circuit in the Sennybridge army training area, near Brecon, Powys, Wales. Organisers have already been inundated with requests for an entry form from eager riders - with only 250 team places available, you're going to have to be quick to get your form in to be in with a chance of taking part... and helping make road race history.
