Six-time Olympic champion Jason Kenny to ride Revolve24

Rio hero to take on 24-hour endurance challenge - registration still open

Great Britain’s Rio 2016 hero Jason Kenny will swap the Olympic Velodrome for Brands Hatch Motor Circuit when he competes at Revolve24 on Saturday (September 10).

Kenny, a three-time gold medallist in Brazil to take his career tally to a British record-equalling six, will join a team taking part in the 24-hour cycling event.

And it’s not too late to enter Revolve24 yourself, and join one of Britain’s greatest ever Olympians in riding through the night at Brands Hatch.

Kenny is an ambassador for the 24-hour endurance event, which launched to great success in 2015, and was tempted by the inaugural edition’s success to ride it himself this time out.

The event is open to soloists – who can use it as a qualify for the Race Across America – duos, teams of four, six or eight riders.

There are also shorter events, and a track omnium taking place over an action-packed weekend at the famous Kent motor racing circuit.

And Kenny said of taking part: “Rio was amazing and the speed of change after it all; you have such a definite plan for so long and you take that plan away and you’re left not really knowing what to do with yourself, so things like this are a good distraction, it’s still competing and just having a laugh as well.

“Brands Hatch is the best course for this event as you don’t have any of the dangers of the road. It has a lot of interesting undulations, especially as you get out into the forest. It’ll be a real challenge for people as they ride through the night, lighting their own way.”

Fancy taking on the challenge? Head to www.revolve24.com to register of, if you’re still not convinced, here’s everything you need to know about the weekend.
