The Trans-Provence is a seven-day mountain biking race in the south of France that runs from Rochebrune to Monte Carlo. For anyone who has ever been to that part of the world, the area is, shall we say, hilly, and the race is billed as one where “the full spectrum of riders’ technical mountain biking ability, fitness, and craft is tested to the limit on some of the wildest bikeable terrain in Europe,” according to the race’s website. Luckily for us, Bike magazine has a correspondent, Seb Kemp, who’s riding and reporting on the race. Of the race’s second day, Kemp writes: “There is no man who could possibly describe what happened today. So I won’t really try, but maybe I can give you some idea.” To find out what happened, click here.
