GT Radial team cycles over 700km in 24hrs

A four-man team made up of employees of GT Radial, a subsidiary of tyre manufacturer Giti Tyre, cycled 169 laps of the Circuit Bugatti at Le Mans to raise over 1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, covering a distance of 707.3km in the process.

“This truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says team member Brian McDermott, who is also MD UK for Giti Tyre. “There is a 600m ascent at the start of every lap that varies between a 3.5-7% gradient. I know we were all grateful for the many hours’ training.”

Richard Lyons, MD Europe, adds: “Everybody in the company is proud of their achievement.”
