Our ambassador Emmanuel Trinité will take part in the TRANSPORTUGAL Race this year.
The TRANSPORTUGAL Race is an 8-stage mountain bike race that crosses Portugal from north to south, from Chaves to Sagres, and will be held from May 8 to 16, 2021. It is a race that has existed since 2002. On the program: more than 900 km and 16,000 m of vertical drop in self-sufficiency with GPS guidance.
A very demanding race for which the endurance but also the resistance and the mind will be put to the test!
Here is the detail of the steps commented by Emmanuel:
- Stage 1: 110 km for 1732 m of elevation gain
"A beginning 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 with the most altitude difference, 2958 m. We will climb the Serra d'Estrela mountains."
- Stage 4: 85 km for 1336 m of D+
"We consider this stage as a day of rest or almost, we will still have to pedal (a little)"
- Stage 5: 190 km for 2067 m of D+
"The longest stage of the race. You will have to provide the necessary food 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 you see the beach…"
- Stage 8: 94 km for 1496 m of D+
"The last one will only have to cross the final line..."
