Basajaun

Posted on
  • Transiberica is organizing a new gravel race in the north of Spain

    Basajaun is ‘the Lord of the Forest’. A mythological guardian of the most virgin and remote forests in Basque Country. Protector of the flocks. Share history with other mythological characters from other cultures such as ogres, trolls, and yet.

    The name was chosen because it keeps the essence of this route, combining the values of ‘the protector’ of the environment with the aridest lands a few kilometers from it.

    You can watch a teaser:

  • @CarlosBI is it more MTB territory or road/gravel?

  • it's between both, that's why in the teaser we used both.
    There are good roads, smooth pads, but also there are some rocky areas (into the forest), so there are better in a MTB or 45mm tires.

    If you are looking to race it, it's better a Gravel Bike, if you want to enjoy an be comfy, maybe a rigid MTB is better.

    I did all almost 2 times with panniers and 650x47 tires without problems.
    In a couple of fast areas, I needed to go carefully, but also because i been with a camera and a lot of stuff. hehe
