Transcontinental Race 2013 highlights

Here’s a short highlight film of one heck of a tough race, the Transcontinental. Ok, there’s a bit too much of a certain sponsor in it but there’s some great photos in the gallery so it’s worth a look. Kristof Allegaert was the overall winner covering the distance from London to Istanbul in 7:13:45. Want to know more? Here’s the why, what and everything else.

    The epic woosh/boom noises whenever you saw a Volvo made me laugh a lot. What an excellent looking race though and a perfect bit of ego stroking when I saw the Genesis Croix de Fer.
