  • 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.

    Ride Mountain Project Jersey's similarly received great comments, the review focusing on the Mont Ventoux one in particular, whilst also praising the entire range; 'Each has a large graphic on the front (the Alpe D'Huez one is gorgeous), plus an outline of France on the centre pocket at the rear, with the location of the climb in question. There's a double stripe up the back which integrates the Ride "r" logo - I think this looks really good.'
