MANIFESTO

The Transibérica Ultracycling events are conceived to be a personal adventure, a collective race.

This project is based on our personal experiences in similar races such us The Transcontinental Race and Trans Am Bike Race and randonneur events such us PBP and LEL.

Transibérica Ultracycling is designed from our deep love to Cycling, Ultracycling, Bikepacking, Self-sufficiency and all values conveyed through Mike Hall and Nathan Jones legacy.

SELF-SUFFICIENCY

This is bikepacking, our essence. This means food, drink and belongings must be carried by the riders or acquired unplanned en-route.

The external assistance or a virtual base-camps is prohibited, although unrequested help en-route is allowed.

NON STOP

These are one stage events. This means once it starts the time doesn’t stop, even while the rider is resting, making the strategy and the self-knowledge essential for the event.

The time to finish is limited, after this the rider can’t expect any official service.

NO ROUTE

Some of our events are No Route. This means our riders must visit all mandatory checkpoints and parcours to validate their Brevet Card following their own way.

It is crucial a deep study of the local orography, cities, weather, traditions and a strong adaptive capacity.

NO DRAFTING

Drafting is not allowed, except for pair category riders.

NO DISTINCTIONS

No male, no female, no junior, no senior…just a rider.

LIVE EVENT TRACKING

Our riders must carry the satellite tracker provided for the event, this will make possible to everyone to follow it online.

SAFETY AND RESPONSIBILITY

Our events are on open roads. The riders must know, observe and comply with local traffic laws.

The helmet, front and rear lights and a reflective vest at night are mandatory.

HONORABLE AGREEMENT

The honorable agreement is inherent to bikepacking competitions.

The organization can apply time penalties, but only the riders by themselves can ensure a fair event.
