Time trialling for 24 hours straight. Sounds grim, right?
Battling fatigue and lack of sleep to try and rack up as much mileage as possible in a single day - this has been endurance rider Chris Hall's focus for the past twelve months.
Chris Hall grits his teeth on the final push at the Mersey Roads 24
Earlier this month we caught up with Chris as he prepared to take on the Mersey Roads 24, a British National 24-hour Time Trial Championship race.
And in the early hours of last weekend, he and his support crew – Attacus co-founder Jimmi, YouTuber Francis Cade and nutritionist Will Girling – set off up north to finally have a crack at the race.

Chris gets prepped near the start line
The months of hard work paid off for Chris, and an incredible effort on the day (and night, and day again) saw him place 8th overall.
As well as physically supporting Chris at the event, we tricked him out with his own Attacus skinsuit and a set of matching aero socks.
Totally in the zone
Refuelling at 5am
Just like our Sweet Spot collection, Chris' skinsuit is made with top-end Italian technical fabrics and our expert perforated Cytech endurance chamois.
