Race the World
Stage Racing on a Global Scale
Sixteen riders, battling out 13 stages from LA to Miami. This is epic bike racing reimagined.
This year Race the World returns, with more teams racing across America following the 2015 inaugural event.
Fully supported, with 13 stages over 14 days, this is true adventure, a challenge with epic scope that’s unprecedented.
The stages are raced as small groups, so team work and camaraderie are rewarded
Racers focus on what they’re there to do; race.
Race the World is the first fully supported cycling race: no rucksacks; no panniers, just you on the bike. Limelight Sports, the organisers, take care of the logistics so you can focus on your cycling.
Following the 2017 America leg of Race the World, plans are underway to take the race to more stunning locations around the globe.
The North American route of Race the World
In the 2015 edition, Team Garin established an early lead after winning the first few stages. Team Deman, led by Sophie Radcliffe, dug deep and fought back, bringing the race back to level peggings by the halfway stage and with over 1,000km left to go, the race came down to the wire. You can see all of the video race reports on Race the World’s Youtube channel here.
You can watch the full Race the World feature film exclusively on BIKE, starting on Wednesday the 11th January at 9PM. Full airing schedule at the bottom of this page.
