ATLAS MOUNTAIN RACE
The Atlas Mountain Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycling race that starts in Marrakesh, crosses the Moroccan Atlas before taking riders through the Anti-Atlas and on to Agadir. The clock does not stop and there are no prizes. It follows gravel, single and double track and old colonial pistes that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair. There is very little tarmac. There is some walking, and at times there is great distances between resupply points.

@skinny not happy with the drafters
interesting to see how liam yates goes.
Also watching this, my mate is in cap 13
My favourite is the Rene Herse centrepull + XTR Di2 combo.
Any idea what the "A" or "B" suffixes on the riders numbers mean?
Riders riding as a pair?
That's the Isen one? @coldharbour any chance of more details on that build?
Rooting for skinny, jonathan, sofiane. They are all well placed.
Nelson DQ'd people in SRMR
where the link for this drafting biz? boy howdy would I be telling them to fuck off
Nice to see Pawel riding strong, close to top 10. Suffering a broken leg in last year's TCR and still with a bunch of metal in his leg.
Oh I imagined two or three people sucking his wheel. But only complaining about the RideLondon 100 roll-out
The head of the race looks strong, Carlos and Sofiane haven't stopped yet tho. Skinny and Jay also stopped for just 2-3h. Christian Meier seems much faster than the rest of the top 10, and he also stopped for more than most of the others.
Is he this guy?
So the organisers take £20k in reg money and don't offer a prize for the winner? Lame and cheap.
