Revolution in TRANSPYR COAST TO COAST: from west to east and with 4 stages in France

TRANSPYR GRAN RAID MTB is a major personal challenge and one of the most exciting and memorable mountain bike adventures where one can take part. It challenges you to fulfill a unique mission in which you will immerse yourself in the different valleys, villages and cultures of the Pyrenees, crossing the entire mountain range from sea to sea. A true Mountain Bike Graduate to face at least once in a lifetime.

TRANSPYR COAST TO COAST revolutionizes its usual format and in 2020 will travel from west to east, starting on the French Basque Coast and ending on the Costa Brava after seven exciting stages.

 

After 10 years proposing a race through the valleys of the southern slope of the Pyrenees, with cyclists from all around the world and being considered one of the ten best MTB stage races in the world, TRANSPYR COAST TO COAST boost this remarkable change.

Without leaving its coast to coast essence, revolutionizes the race proposing a new course. From the Cantabrian Sea to the Mediterranean. Leaving Saint-Jean-de-Luz to cross the Pyrennes  from north to south, entering Spain through the Val d’Aran and ending in Roses.

 

The 2020 edition of TRANSPYR COAST TO COAST will be held from June 14 to 20 with the following stage locations: Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Oloron-Sainte-Marie, Bagnères-de-Bigorre, Vielha, La Seu d’Urgell, Camprodon and Roses.

 

One of the great incentives that this revolution poses to the participants of Transpyr Backroads is, in addition to a completely new proposal, the passage through some of the most mythical mountain passes of the world cycling, in which authentic sports feats are written each year with the celebration of Le Tour de France. Marie-Blanque, Aubisque, Aspin, Peyresourde or the Colossus Tourmalet can be part of the program, in a race that could combine its essence of small, quiet and unknown roads, with the ascent to legendary mountain passes.
