From the official website of the Lezyne supported Transcontinental Race:
“The PEdAL ED Transcontinental Race is the definitive self-supported bicycle race across Europe. At the sharp end it is a beautifully hard bicycle race, 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.”
This year’s race, the fifth edition, was won by James Hayden with a time of 8 days 23 hours and 14 minutes. Take a look at the videos below for a daily breakdown of one of the toughest long-distance bike races in the world!
