Josh from Team i-ride.co.uk is riding a De Rosa Superking and using a whole host of accessories from our other brands including Northwave shoes, Token aerobars, 3T handlebars, Continental tyres, Prologo saddle and more. The clock never stops so it upto each individual rider how much rest they need and when they need it. The race also has live tracking as each rider is given a GPS device. You can track Josh at the below link and he is currently doing an awesome job in second place.
