Be Part of the Support Driver Team

 

 

 

The amazing support drivers play an indispensable and vital role as part of every Peloton Challenge team. Drivers’ participation is also relay style: each team of drivers supports the riders for two consecutive six-hour cycling shifts, before joining a ride team during the 24-hour break period before the next transition point. This means that each support driver team gets to help with each team of cyclists throughout the 8-day ride; and then gets to join in the fun and celebration at the finish line.
