    I've entered.

    So far there's only about 30 other idiots signed up but there's still 2 weeks to enter.

    Since other people have asked about when it's on and where it is and since I'm tired of posting questions about it to multiple threads, here we are in our very own thread.

    Has anyone on here ridden a 24hr TT? I know there's some 24hr solo mtb'ers on here.

    Event HQ is at Berwick Village Hall, just north of Berwick (Sussex) Station:

    Those who want to help reapply my chamois cream, please form an orderly queue, no squabbling, you'll all get a chance..

    National record: 525mi (845km)
    Club record: 459.070 (739km)

  • shouldn't this be merged with the TT thread?

    "Time Trial / Time Trialling / TT

    There's not a general thread (that I could find) about time trials and time trialling. Since it seems everyone is racing this year I'm guessing some of you will hit up the odd time trial. Discuss 'em here. 
    

    "

  • Thanks for the tip, wanker. Other forumites have expressed interest in heading to the event so I split it out. It's also quite a bit different to 10s and 25s that are mostly discussed in the TT thread. Also, there are already threads on here about other singular TT events.

  • Merge them all. Make a list. Do a skid.

  • I was just very confused when I read the title as ESCA used to stand for the English Schools Cycling Association back when I were a mildly competitive lad. I was going to put money on you for the win as you were clearly entering as a ringer.

  • esca24hour.org.uk/

    I've entered.

    Kudos. I fancy a 100 at some point but 24h? No fanks. Good luck to you.

    What do you do re; toilet time do you stop?

  • Is there a minimum speed requirement?

    also do people sleep or just push through 24hrs?

    My body/brain is stupid enough to think that I could force myself over the pain threshold in a month.

  • hey hippy,

    that is very impressive that you have entered.

    good luck.

    i will be very interested in how you get on.

    keep us posted.

  • Kudos. I fancy a 100 at some point but 24h? No fanks. Good luck to you. What do you do re; toilet time do you stop?

    I'll either stop or piss off the bike.
    Given what I'm eating, shitting probably won't happen for a week after the event.

  • Is there a minimum speed requirement?

    also do people sleep or just push through 24hrs?

    My body/brain is stupid enough to think that I could force myself over the pain threshold in a month.

    Nope. Just like a shorter TT.

    I won't be sleeping. Can't imagine anyone else would. My mate slept in his first mtb 24hr.. for about 8 hours!!! Ha.

    I think it will be more like waves of pain thresholds..

  • Is this some sort of cycling equivalent to 24-hour posting marathons?

  • So that's the Nationals. I guess you won't be entering the Continental Champs.

  • I won't be sleeping. Can't imagine anyone else would.

    Some people like to get their nut down for half an hour in the middle of the night. My dad has a house in Henfield if you fancy a kip during the night circuit :-)

  • Top tip fella: Don't forget your race shoes!
    Best of luck.

  • . Do a skid.

    I think he will in his skinsuit! Good luck! I might pop along to view the nutters riding this.

  • I was just very confused when I read the title as ESCA used to stand for the English Schools Cycling Association back when I were a mildly competitive lad. I was going to put money on you for the win as you were clearly entering as a ringer.

    Me too, I've got medals from their Nationals somewhere....it is now BSCA isn't it?

  • What average % of FTP do hit in something like that?

  • Is this some sort of cycling equivalent to 24-hour posting marathons?

    You get sore hands in both. Maybe they could be held concurrently with mobile tech..

    Party! I'll bring the Fosters (c) RPM

    Best of luck.

    SIDIs are overrated man :) Cheers FE!

  • What average % of FTP do hit in something like that?

    75% is kinda where I'm looking.

  • Might come down, shout at you a bit while drinking lager then fuck off home again.

    Is that Ok?

  • Shirtanly. I might run you down and try to steal your beer though. ;)

  • So wait a minute....If you win then are you national champion? Can you be national champion and a bloody furriner?

  • you win

    That's a pretty big 'if'
