The Transcontinental Race 2015


The Transcontinental Race 2015 (#TCR2015)

I (James Hayden) am racer number 75 in the TCR15.


My TCR didn’t quite go to plan.  But you can read me being the first racer to summit Ventoux (Checkpoint 1) and leading the race for several days here;

From the first hours of the 25th July 2015, I will set off from Geraardsbergen, Belgium in pursuit of being the first #TCR15 racer to arrive in Istanbul, having meandered my way across Europe and the race checkpoints.  I have spent the past year all consumed by this race.  I have spend the past 4 months training harder than ever before.  I am prepared and ready to push my body and mind further than ever before.  I am just a guy riding a bike, wanting to find out how tough he really is.
