Backroads revolutionises its route and offers some of the Tour de France’s most legendary mountain passes.
Within the event, stage-race participants will square off against fabled summits such as Tourmalet, Peyresourde and Aubisque.
TRANSPYR Backroads has revolutionised its habitual format and, in 2022, will run west to east, starting in the French Basque Country and finishing on the Costa Brava after seven thrilling stages.
One of the highlights for this year’s Transpyr Backroads participants will surely be, in addition to its entirely new concept, the inclusion of some of world cycling’s most legendary mountain passes, where each year Tour de France cyclists perform unimaginable sporting feats. The route will travel up and over Peyresourde, the remarkable Hourcère, Aubisque and the colossal Tourmalet, in an adventure which will combine small, quiet and unknown mountain roads with climbs along legendary mountain passes.
