        Hi Wade, there is another guy Nick who’s from Noosa I met at the bottom of De Muur yesterday. Unsure of his social media connections. But I’ll mostly be posting on that above Facebook link and instagram under @el_franco_.

    • Thanks Troy. Looking forward to meeting Francis in Geraardsbergen tomorrow!

    I gotta call foul on the article stating this is more ‘pure’ than the TdF, that’s a crock. just sayin’.

    • I was referring to the fact that the TdF is purely commercial venture. It’s a business and a bike race just happens to be the main attraction. The Transcontinental race is nothing like that.

        I’m with you on this one Wade. The big events are interesting, but I enjoy bike racing too.

  • Hi Alain, Have a great race, you will face some really tough challenges, so really high highs and a few really low lows. I did it in 2013 and it was both scary and fantastic. Enjoy it, just look out for the dogs. Brian
