Chris's Transatlantic Way Race page 2018!

I'm racing a 2500k nonstop unsupported cycle event for Age UK because the needs of the elderly are too easily ignored.

Story

The Transatlantic Way Race is a solo, nonstop, unsupported cycle race from Dublin to Derry and then following the Wild Atlantic Way down the entire west coast of Ireland to Cork. The winner is likely to finish in around 6 days! I raced this as my first ultra endurance cycle race in 2017 and was placed 7th when I was forced to abandon the race, for safety reasons, less than 300km from the finish with neck problems.

This year is my chance to complete the race and hopefully finish well into the right end of the pack! There will be more than double the number of entrants this year with a roster of 200 riders.
