Following in the spirit of the Tour Divide and Transcontinental, Nelson Trees has put together an off-road race through the remote and distant mountains of Kyrgystan that we’re proud to be involved with.
The race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycle race following gravel, single track, double track and old soviet roads that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair. Covering a distance of 1,700kms with 26,000m of climbing and minimal resupply points, it’s a classic adventure race as the film above will testify.
We delighted to support Nelson and the team with a series of race podcasts that will be available before and during the race on this page, the SRMR website and all the usual podcast download sites. Internet coverage in the country is limited and a podcast was thought the best way to file daily reports to the outside world.
