Lost Dot Podcast: The Trans Pyrenees and Transcontinental Race

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.

episode 2: TPR No 1: Grit, Gravel and Howling Wind


Picking up from Control Point 1 where we last spoke to the riders, the Lost Dot Podcast catches up with Ede Harrison and Ingeborg Dybal Oie who are scrapping for first and second in the women's race.

They have chased each other on a grinding gravel ascent to Andorra, then climbed back into a French landscape of closed shops and then battled the wind to reach Salvador Dali country for the final Control Point at Cap de Creus.
