The Transcontinental Race 2015

 

The Transcontinental Race 2015 (#TCR2015)

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

UPDATE:

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; http://lecol.net/blogs/news/44912005-transcontinental-2015-summary

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.
