REVOLUTION TO SUPPORT SEAN CONWAY WITH CYCLING THE EARTH
Sean Conway is an adventure cyclist on a mission. In February 2012 he will depart on an 18,000 mile journey in a bid to become the fastest man to cycle around the world solo and unsupported. Sean will be aiming to raise £100,000 for SolarAid as he attempts to travel the globe by bike in under 150 days.
Revolution Series is pleased to be supporting Sean’s incredible journey, and will be setting Sean a different challenges at each event of the Series to raise awareness of his adventure and hopefully help him reach his amazing fundraising target.
A pursuit with a difference!
Sean will take part in a different challenge at each of the four Revolution events this winter. The Series opener on Saturday 29th October will see Sean pitted against the current Global Bike Race record holder Vin Cox in a unique sprint pursuit race.
Both men are in the business of pushing their bodies to the limit, but racing the track is a completely different challenge to the big record attempt. In a Revolution exclusive, the two of them will take to the track on their fully laden touring bikes and race a ten-lap, high-speed pursuit race. It will be a test not only of speed, but also of skill and nerve.
Can you outpace Sean?
In order to reach the level of fitness necessary to have a chance of breaking the current world record, Sean has to spend most of his waking hours out of his comfort zone.
October 29th will be no exception. When his race is over, the Revolution crowd will have a chance to go head to head against Sean on his static roller racing system, in a short but intense sprint race. With all things considered, the opening Revolution has the potential to be one of his most difficult evenings so far.
You can visit (and race!) Sean at his publicity stand in the Revolution track centre.
Sean is using the Global Bike race as an opportunity to try and raise £100,000 for SolarAid, a charity which is helping some of Africa’s poorest people gain access to solar power. As the use of traditional fuels to light homes in Africa kills more people each year than malaria, giving those people an alternative power source is absolutely vital.
