The Transcontinetal Race, the 2000 mile self supported bike adventure across Europe, is set to start at 10pm Friday in Geraadsbergen, Belgium.
The race is tracked by satellite, WARNING it's way to easy to start watching to dots morning, noon and middle-of-the-night as live tracking will be available at the Transcontinetal race website HERE once the race rolls off.
