Much like many of the endurance races that the TORQ Performance MTB Team take on, the TT legend have been racing over 8 and 24 hours in teams of 3, completing laps of some world famous race circuits and, although on 1000cc motorbikes and reaching speeds of upwards of 180mph, this is undeniably an energetic form of motorsport, where fitness and fuelling play a critical role in the team’s success.
