For those following this year’s Transcontinental Race, the organization released their official videos this week, following racers as they traverse Europe with hopes of completing one of the hardest races in Europe. Play video one above and continue playing for the whole series. Enjoy!

Every photograph has a story and for Camille, it centers around the tale of the TCR.
“Camille McMillan has followed the riders of the Transcontinental Race with his camera for the last three editions of the race, capturing their journeys from one corner of Europe to the other.
The Transcontinental is a self-supported bikepacking race, with riders finding their own way for over 4000km. To paraphrase the race’s founder, Mike Hall, “if you get lost, you will need to get un-lost.” Camille’s photographs capture the riders as they navigate unfamiliar and vast landscapes of Europe, showing that in an age of SPOT trackers, GPS and Google Maps, there’s something to be said for being lost and finding your way again.”
Here’s the latest journal from PedalED, featuring their friend and artist Stefano. Follow along as Stefano discusses his preparation for this event and good luck to all the TCR racers out on the road right now!
In the last video for the TCR, we catch up with Kristof Allegaert, Neil Phillips and Carlos Mazon, the race leaders as the push through the course.
The TCR video series continues with a profile of photographer James Robertson at the Kinesis Control, the third checkpoint, which takes riders from Grindelwald to Furkapass.
Two years ago, we saw Ertzui take on the daunting task of documenting the Transcontinental, a self-guided, self-supported race from London to Istanbul. This year, the TCR has a three part video series showcasing the event, made by AHStudio. Here’s part one.
