Raid Pyrénéen 2020
Hendaye in the Basque Country to Cerbère in French Catalonia. A distance of 720km, 18 cols and over 12,000m of climbing... The 'standard' is to complete this over 5 days/100hours.
Obviously pushing the limits once more we are aiming for 35hours...
I completed this route in 2005 with Sports Tours (with the excellent Julie, Andrew and Eddie) as training for the National Champs. An awesome experience and the reason I settled near Perpignan to persue my dream as a cyclist in 2006.
Now after several years out due to injury i'm back on the bike and working with the man who got me into the best shape in 2016: Richard Laidlow of Sancture Sportifs.
We are planning this in September allowing us to make the most of the mild days and quiet roads; this give me around 9months to find my climbing legs and the general physical form to get through it as quickly as possible.
