#TPRNo4

TPRNo4 is here.

Though the premise of the Trans Pyrenees Race is the same year to year — to cross the Pyrenees mountain range from one side to another, and back again — no two races are the same, and each edition reveals a unique narrative of perseverance and adaptability. Each year, the story of traversing Pyreneean mountain scapes, rolling with the changeability of the climate, and moving through the distinct mountain cultures of these regions, paints a different picture for every rider who participates. The fourth edition is now ready to pore over, to take in its distinct CP and Parcours placements, and imagine how one might conquer its parameters.

With a fresh set of Control Points, TPRNo4 awaits to test the next band of riders who wish to accept the challenge, treating them to the all-consuming beauty, and capricious brutality, of the mountains. How will you decide to take on the fourth edition of the Trans Pyrenees Race?

About the Race

The Trans Pyrenees Race is a self supported ultra distance cycling event organised by Lost Dot, the team behind the Transcontinental Race. Mike Hall was designing this event back in 2016; his vision was to reward the most adventurous, providing opportunities to beat the clock by facing the most demanding terrain.

A mixture of Control Points and Parcours (mandatory sections of route) will guide riders though up to 2000 km of the most spectacular and remote scenery in the Pyrenees from coast to coast, and then back again.

The climbing will be considerable, this is definitely one for the grimpeurs!

Mike Hall

The man who started it all. Mike Hall devised the Transcontinental Race and ran all editions until his tragic death in 2017. Find out all about the inspiring maverick whose spirit remains the beating heart of everything Lost Dot do.

Lost Dot

We preserve and nurture Mike Hall's legacy of fair and self-sufficient racing, championing integrity, equality and inclusivity, creating opportunities for unique and beautiful journeys of self discovery to share with as many people as possible.

The Route

Infused with the same mythical charm of each Trans Pyrenees Race that came before it, #TPRNo4 will again guide our riders on a spectacular double traverse of the Pyrenees. As summer gives way to autumn, our riders will touch both the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, along with the myriad summits and valleys that lie in between. But this year we’re turning the route on its head. Starting in the warm Mediterranean air of Girona, riders will chart a course westward, criss-crossing the high mountains towards the Atlantic, before turning around to tackle our variation of the Raid Pyrenean in reverse.

As always, the Race will reward those seeking adventure. A series of craftily positioned Parcours and Controls offer riders the freedom to devise their own route. A puzzle to be solved, which can be tackled in many ways. Whether navigating metaphorical, physical, or topographic highs and lows, whichever path they choose, riders are promised a challenge with unparalleled rewards.
