Going the komoot route this time after last years strava heat map debacle.
I'll be using komoot too...major differences between the way the two plot routes!!! and you can do longer than 150km stretches!
Rider list has been published: https://www.transcontinental.cc/riderstcrn06/
I am cap number 134!
Derek Boocock used Komoot to ride to my house in Denmark from his house in Holland and back. Over the full distance he had 1km of track which he would not have chosen, but was rideable.
Saw a post on Instagram yesterday from a bike mechanic showing the work he’d done for one of the tcr riders. The post was a photo of the rider and his bike.
Today the post is gone - the poster was seemingly contacted by the tcr organization and told to remove the post as he didn’t have a media license for the event. He says that the rider could have been chucked off the race if he didn’t take the post down.
Surely they need all the press they can muster.
Will they close down this thread as it is an unofficial channel?
Just read the T&Cs and I think the issue is that riders need a media license to use any photos taken of them in relation to tcr...
"The rider agreement, among other things, says that the rider agrees to yield the commercial rights of all the media they collect on the Event to Transcontinental. We do this as our basic deal with the rider is just to provide race administration and its services in return for the entry fee - this helps keeps that fee low. Some riders and companies may also benefit from the race's profile and publicity through rider sponsorship, so or this we can license back some of the commercial rights for use on things like social media. We will provide a separate agreement to provide clarity on what the license covers.
So if a rider will use their participation in the race to promote ANY commercial organisation (including one they own) then they will need to buy the £100 media license."
They dont need all the advertising they can muster. There were over 1000 applicants for 300 places.
Just an update of Arnoldas No134.
He is doing well He is through CP1 with lots of time to spare and is now 180km to CP2. He is in the front half of the field.
Its no surprise to those of us that know Arnold that he's doing well. He was an extremely good rider when he was a young chap coming out riding with us, beating all us oldies up hills like nobody's business.
A few years back I sold Arnold a bike. I asked what he was going to do with it. Ride home was his response. Croydon I asked. No he said. Lithuania :-)
Two of my club mates are riding this event, Stuart White 194 and Adam Green 105
The stats for the two guys leading are ridiculous.....how in the name of all things holy can they ride for so long!!!
Dot watching and streetview in combination makes for one hell of a timesink
CrinklyUncle is in Innsbruck.

Found a nice bus stop in Austria,five Star rating I gave it, till someone turned on the lights in my new room!
