Look back at Transportugal
Just been sent some pictures of the Transportugal race i did this year so seems a good time to write a little look back post... and tonight for once i have little work for my Msc.

Don't want to cover every stage more just look at the stand out moments that still seem fresh 4 months on...
The brainchild of Antonio Malvar and sponsored by Garmin, the American GPS company, the Trans-Portugal Garmin is a 9 day, north to south crossing of Portugal began on the 29th April and is due to finish on the 8th May. This is a formidable 1,150 km off-road mountain bike race across forest tracks, gravel roads and steep single tracks on clifftops. It is one of the toughest mountain bike stage races around and is a true ‘trans’ event as riders traverse the entire length of Portugal, from Braganca in the North to Sagres in the South.
