Our ambassador Emmanuel Trinité will participate this year in the TRANSPORTUGAL Race.
The TRANSPORTUGAL Race is a mountain bike race in 8 stages which crosses Portugal from north to south, from Chaves to Sagres, and which will be held from May 8 to 16, 2021. It is a race which has existed since 2002. On the program : more than 900 km and 16,000 m of altitude difference in self-sufficiency with GPS guidance.
A very demanding race for which endurance but also resistance and mentality will be put to the test!
Here are the details of the steps commented by Emmanuel:
- Stage 1: 110 km for 1732 m of D+
"A start of the course in technical parts with a few bumps afterwards 😁 then the last 40 km will be downhill"
- Stage 2: 91 km for 2665 m of D+
"The shortest but one of the hardest. With 17 km of climbing to warm up from the start of this second day ✊"
- Stage 3: 97 km for 2958 m of D+
"This stage is the one which represents the greatest difference in altitude, i.e. 2958 m. We will climb the mountains of the Serra d'Estrela."
- Stage 4: 85 km for 1336 m of D+
"We consider this stage as a day of rest or almost, you will still have to pedal (a little)"
- Stage 5: 190 km for 2067 m of D+
"The longest stage of the race. You will need to plan the necessary nutrition and hydration..."
- Stage 6: 101 km for 892 m of D+
"This stage will be rather hilly after the Queen stage the day before. You will just have to turn your legs 😆"
- Stage 7: 134 km for 2325 m of D+
"The penultimate there will still be a few bumps before seeing the beach..."
- Stage 8: 94 km for 1496 m of D+
"The last one, all that remains is to cross the final line..."
