Algarve, Portugal, form May 24th to the 29th will be held the first edition of TransAlgarve MTB Race.
A mountainbikie race that crosses all of Algarve, from east to west, a 500Km route with 11500 meters of climbing will take you to the most scenic and unspoiled places of this southern region i Portugal, best known for sun and beach tourism.
The unique climate, with an average of 300 sunny days per year, the big differences of the terrain and landscape between each stage, will set this race apart from other races held in typical mountain terrain. Still, don’t expect it to be easy, it will be challenging and certainly a mountainbike adventure you will remember.
The route is linear, so that means you won’t be returning to the start point. Each day you start and end in different places, crossing the Algarve in six very different stages, as you’ll find the region to be very diverse.
No stage is like another, from the eastern “Barrocal” to the western wild beaches and astonishing clifftop views, not even the mountain backdrop will be missed, as the race goes trought Algarve highest point, Fóia.
All sorts of terrain and veggetation, doubletracks, unpaved roads, techcnical singletrack, progressive climbs, steep hills, and most importantly a course that has been designed to be 99.9% rideable.
GPS oriented, so you always know where you are, and where you have to go. No ribbons nor other physical marks in the course, so it’s eco friendly and nobody can temper with it.
Limted spots available, as we want to keep organization and atheletes close and teh relation personal. Unlike other mass participated events, this is a mountain bike adventure, to mtb lovers, made by mtb lovers, so expect us to be open to any feedback you might have every day, so that we can improve the experience.
