Transpyr sees completion of its longest stage
Transpyr Backroads crossed into Navarre in what was the race’s penultimate stage before reaching the finish tomorrow in Hondarribia and completing the mission of joining the Mediterranean and Bay of Biscay. The cyclists marked the race’s longest stage (168 kilometres), with punishing climbs including the ascent to Port de Larrau. The pack completed what many consider the race’s most beautiful stage, with unparalleled landscapes such as the Arguibela mountain pass. Tomorrow, the roughly hundred Transpyr Road participants will also complete the thrilling and arduous challenge of crossing the southern slopes of the Pyrenees on inhospitable roads in seven stages.
