    Who's thinking about entering?

  • Not me this year.

    Just seen the route outline. Looks like it will be a good bit shorter but pretty hilly. Some interesting bits. Probably a lot less riding on scary roads than this year. Last leg to Thessaloniki is not very long. Not sure if there's a crazy parcours this year - will have a look.

  • They've done the route for you. That's nice of them. Saves hours.

  • If I was doing it I would be spending my evening looking into:

    • Going up the Rhine
    • Po Valley from cp1—2.
    • the flat road from Slovenia through Croatia and Serbia that I did the other way in 2019,to get to Albania from the North East.
    • ways to avoid that shitty gravel road across Macedonia.

    I'm actually getting a bit fomo seeing the route...

  • I get FOMO every year. But at the same time I'm also kinda happy to just watch it unfurl now.

    I've got too much other stuff going on and now that the missus is a proven headkicker we can do more big rides together.

  • Sure, getting her to take up your fetish is always going to be a lot more fun than racking up the TCRs!
