A once in a lifetime cycling opportunity...



Race the World, which took place in November 2015, is the first supported team cycling race, taking amateur riders to unique and stunning locations around the globe.

Team Garin and Team Deman raced through the stunning North American open spaces, deserts and remote Gulf coast from LA to Miami in this unprecedented adventure. 

16 riders. 13 stages. 1 race

For a unique route, we needed great partners for the essential parts of the journey – bike, tyres, kit. We are really pleased to be working with dhb, Haglöfs, Planet K2, Schwalbe, Wiggle Nutrition and Wilier Triestina



"At Schwalbe, we’re very aware of the challenges faced by riders taking on a variety of surfaces, and we knew we could have a really positive impact on Race the World participants’ experience. We’re delighted that we were the official tyre partner of the event. Using a range of our proven cyclo-cross and performance road tyres, Race the World participants will be able to select the tyre best suited to the conditions." Dave Taylor, Marketing Manager, Schwalbe UK

The Race

 In 2015 we took on the USA section of the course, starting in Los Angeles on 1st November and finishing on 14th November in Miami.

Each team collectively covered between 200-300km per stage, although each rider only needed to be on the road for a certain amount of that, specified each day.
