The Trans-Provence is back with a boom for its 7th time, and this one is set to be a cracker. There’s a rather large gap between the Trans-Provence racers and it’s all for good reason, with each course not revisiting major parts of the previous, it takes an entire year to scout and ride spots which are good enough for the worlds best. It’s safe to say this year, the Southeastern area of France has some pretty high expectations attached to it.
The Trans-Provence race covers 270km of blind racing, which should be a fun not only to ride, but to watch, as no practice is given and the event relies on riders quick, decisive skill and technical ability to judge lines at the last second.We took a look at some of the bikes attempting this monster of a course and checked out what the riders were looking forward to.
Emiliano Surballe – When riding blind you get to know new trails all over the southern Alps of France. I like the fact that the terrain is natural, not hand built and Tthere’s a lot of nature involved in it.
