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 his legacy.
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.
ONE STAGE 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.
Our events can be Set-Route or No-Route. In this last case the riders must visit all mandatory checkpoints and parcours to validate their Brevet Card following their own way.
It is strongly recommended a deep study of the local orography, cities, weather, traditions and a strong adaptive capacity.
Riders are not allowed to draft other cyclists during the race unless they participate as a pair.
No male, no female, no junior, no senior…just riders.
Although the goal for many riders is to be a finisher, these events are competitions strictly classified in the order they finish.
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.
LIVE EVENT TRACKING
Our riders must carry the satellite tracker provided for the event, this will make possible to everyone to follow the race on the official website and social networks.
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.
