Here are a few of the photos I took of the seventh Transcontinental Race (#TCRNo7), an extraordinary sporting endeavour that involves cycling 4,000km across Europe with no support.
That means carrying everything you need for two weeks or more on a bike that’s still light enough to ride up mountain tracks and fast enough to cover up to 400km per day.
Sounds completely crazy doesn’t it? Well, there’s no getting away from it, it is. I followed the race in a campervan with my son, from Burgas in Bulgaria to Brest in France, taking photos and writing a series of articles for fizik, the Italian manufacturer of cycling shoes, saddles and accessories. It was a wonderful trip – one I’d love to repeat one of these years.
