Journal 8, The Mountain
We are proud to announce our support as title sponsor of the Silk Road Mountain Race that will take place in Kyrgyzstan next August. Created by Nelson Trees, whose experience as a Transcontinental racer inspired him to create this new event, the SRMR will be a new chapter of the journey that we started a long time ago in support of the unsupported. In his own words, this is what the race is all about: "The Silk Road Mountain Race is a fixed route, unsupported, cycling race through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. It will follow gravel, single and double track and old soviet roads that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair. There will be very little tarmac. There may be some walking. At times there will be great distances between resupply points. The clock will not stop. There are no prizes." The race will take place between the 18th of August and the 1st of September 2018 and will cover 1700 kilometers for around 26,000 meters of climbing. It's going to be wild, an extremely tough but seriously rewarding experience for anyone who takes part.
