The 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.

Registration for TCR No. 6 will open on Friday 12th January 2018 at 8pm GMT. Registration will remain open for two weeks and close on 26th January 2018 at midnight GMT.
