For its first year anniversary on June 16th, 48×17 Cycles in Athens, with the support of Trimble Racing, is hosting a track and fixed gear endurance race from Athens to Marathon Lake and back. Covering a distance of 66,6 km the race pays tribute to the sole road cycling event of the first Modern Olympic Games of 1896. Back then gears, brakes and deralleurs were not yet invented and all bicycles were fixed gear and brakeless. Greek Aristides Konstantinides won the gold, followed by German August von Gödrich and Briton Edward Battel. With Tokyo Fixed and Cadence prizes, music and drinks at the 48×17 premises and free accommodation available for international riders, let’s see what goes down this time. Join the most epic of all races.

PRIZES:

1st place: Tokyo Fixed, Cadence Clothing

2nd place: FSA, Cadence Clothing

3rd place: Cadence Clothing
