CYCLING: The Trans Pyrenees Race


The Trans Pyrenees Race is a self supported ultra distance cycling event organised by Lost Dot, the team behind the Transcontinental Race. Mike Hall was designing this event back in 2016; his vision was to reward the most adventurous, providing opportunities to beat the clock by facing the most demanding terrain.

A mixture of Control Points, Parcours and some set route will guide riders though 1700 km of the most spectacular and remote scenery in the Pyrenees from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean Sea, and back again.

The climbing will be considerable, this is definitely one for the grimpeurs!




Trans Pyrenees No.1 has three Control Points with associated parcours and 6 separate parcours to guide riders through some of the most spectacular and remote areas of the Pyrenees.

The return route is based on the famous Le Raid Pyrénéen Randonneur, created in 1950 by the Cyclo Club Béarnais, climbing some of the most famous routes of the Pyrenees including Col d’Aubisque, Col du Tourmalet and Col d’Aspin.



After a compelling race across the Pyrenees, traversing multiples cols and visiting the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines, Robert Müller emerged as the winner of the Trans Pyrenees Race No2. Demonstrating a great ability to adapt, persevere and overcome the challenges posed by the Race, he focussed on his own ride and was the first person home.

The final results for every rider that took part are available via the button below. Congratulations to all the riders, and a huge thanks to our volunteers, and of course our Race partners Komoot, Fizik, Pedaled, Tailfin, 200 Magazine and Kinesis, without whom this Race wouldn’t be possible.

We look forward to seeing you on the start line of TPRNo3 next year.



Race start: 29th September 2023
