Our very own Josh Ibbett today finished in second position in an epic race across Europe in the Transcontinental Race from London to Istanbul.
It took Josh 9 days 5 hours and 59 minutes in total, battling the elements and fatigue to secure second places just in front of fellow Brit Richard Dunnett who came in just 35 minutes after Josh.
The race winner, Kristof Allegaert, made it to Istanbul in an incredible 7 days and 23 hours having only slept for 3 hours each night.
Josh unfortunately encountered some problems along his journey; his gear cable snapped and without a replacement on him, had to continue his journey single speed before he found a bike shop.
Riders are not bound to one fixed route; they must only visit the mandatory checkpoints along their journey; CP 1: Cafe au Reveil Matin, PARIS - CP 2: Passo Dello Stelvio, ITALY - CP 3: Mount Lovcen, MONTENEGRO.
