Stories from the Trans Pyrenees and Transcontinental Race.
At the sharp end they are beautifully hard bicycle races, simple in design but complex in execution. Factors of self reliance, logistics, navigation and judgement burden racers’ minds as well as their physiques. The strongest excel and redefine what we think possible while many experienced riders target only a finish.
As the race leaders roll over the finish line in Brest, Tom Bonnett is on the road presenting stories from riders reaching Control Point 3 and Control Point 4.
