The RACE – 2933 miles in 12 days (The Tour de France: 2131 miles in 21 days), crossing the Alps twice and the Pyrenees once.
The RACE (Race across Europe) is a once-in-a-lifetime cycling event featuring the very best of riding in Europe. Cyclists start in Calais then head east across France, brave Germany’s Black Forest, cross the Austrian Alps, dip their pedals into Italy, turn left into Slovenia, scale the Vrsic Pass, speed across flat northern Italy, conquer Mont Ventoux, soak up the South of France’s sunshine, cross the Pyrenees and relish Spain’s fantastic roads to finish at Europa Point in Gibraltar with amazing views across to north Africa.
This event requires exceptional teamwork, stamina, energy, strategy and humour to succeed. Each team is responsible for organising and funding the support crew and vehicles. The RACE is highly suited to sponsorship as the vehicles, cyclists and bicycles all represent mobile advertising as they travel across Europe. Sponsorship and fundraising will both help in gaining support for this very visible challenge.
