FulGaz® is excited to announce it is partnering with the endurance-cycling event, Chase The Sun for the coming two years, bringing the best sections of these grueling one day events to not only Chase The Sun registered riders, but FulGaz subscribers around the world.
Chase The Sun is a non-competitive ride open to all, which is focused on riding from one side of the UK, Ireland or Italy to the other before sun down on the same day. With no rules, route-signs, timing or medals, it is an annual physical, motivational and navigational challenge.
Now with four events departing at the same sunrise on 24 June, 2023 entrants can ride coast to coast, east to west from Sunrise to Sunset, in the North and South of the UK, Ireland and Italy
As a part of the partnership FulGaz will launch a ‘Chase The Sun’ ride channel complete with new rides featuring the most spectacular and challenging parts of each event route.
But we can’t do this alone and need the help of the Chase The Sun and FulGaz community to film some rides ranging in 60 to 90 minutes in length. All the camera gear and training will be supplied so if you have ever wanted to contribute a ride to the FulGaz library, now is your chance!
Once filmed this collection of rides will become a critical part of pre-event training for riders. From the comfort of their homes they will be able to see exactly what lies ahead on event day and train accordingly.
“The team is looking forward to bringing the Chase The Sun event series to riders around the world.” said Mike Clucas, founder of FulGaz and Vice President of Digital Sports for The IRONMAN Group
He added, “It’s not easy riding over 200 miles in one day, quite literally chasing the sun, so the team at FulGaz are excited to help riders on their journey, so they can confidently line up on event day.
It’s part of our DNA to help everyday riders accomplish their goals and this series fits firmly within that ethos,” said Clucas.
“We are thrilled to partner with FulGaz to give Chase The Sun riders the perfect way to kick off their training programmes for our 2023 events. We also look forward to giving more cyclists around the world the chance to get a taste of the Chase The Sun longest-day experience!” Phil Webb, Co-Director, Chase The Sun
