On August 24 and 25, the 15th edition of the Škoda 24 Hours Cycling will take place on the prestigious Bugatti Circuit in Le Mans, France. Coming from all over France and abroad, over 3000 participants, from seasoned competitors to cycling enthusiasts, will take on the notorious Dunlop hump to defy the clock.

Pierre Rolland, professional cyclist from 2007 to 2022, will lower the French flag to start the race. Over the course of his career, the Frenchman competed in 13 Tours de France, 4 Tours of Spain and 2 Tours of Italy. His track record includes multiple stage victories, including the Alpe of Huez in 2011, which had not happened in 25 years for a French cyclist. That same year, he wore the white jersey for best young rider on the Tour. Since January 2023, Pierre Rolland has been consulting for the French TV channel « L’Equipe ».

Competing in teams of 2, 4, 6, 8, or even as solo riders, the contenders will receive this year a « finisher » medal. To follow on from the trophies awarded to the winners, this reward Made in France will also be made out of wood, and will attest of each individual’s performance.
Another new feature is that to accompany the technical support provided by Mondovélo/Shimano and the podiatrists’ team, physiotherapists will take good care of the competitors in between their relays. The Swiss brand Compex will reinforce this system with electrostimulation and self-massage products, as well as pressotherapy boots.
