Rides, Races & Events

ultra cycling races

These are without doubt the main focus of all my cycling, with races such as the Transcontinental (TCR) and TransAtlanticWay (TAW) being top of my to-do lists. However as unsupported Ultra Races are becoming more prevalent, there will be no shortage of 'must do' events appearing on the calendar.


Here in the Netherlands there is no shortage of brevets and with next year being Paris-Brest-Paris I will have to complete a Super Randonneur Series of 200, 300, 400 and 600 km rides to qualify. To give me a better chance of an entry I'll also complete a 1200 km brevet.


I've competed in many sportives over the years, my favourites being the Etape du Tour (several) and the Marmotte. However my most memorable performance came when completing the full route of Paris-Roubaix. My most recent was the Styrkeprøven in Norway - 543 km from Trondheim to Oslo in 21 hours.
