Transcontinental Race 2013

Juliana was the sole female rider to compete in the 2013 Quick Energy Transcontinental Race; Europe’s longest, toughest unsupported bike race from London to Istanbul via the high cols of the Alps. She came in 9th place out of 31 riders, cycling 3,420 kilometers in 12 days and 2 hours.

About the race

From the Transcontinental Race website:

  • Unsupported: Cyclists ride alone and are reliant only on what they can carry or can find in publicly available services. No pre-arranged support and no dedicated assistance.
  • Unconstrained: One stage, a start and finish line and a few check points, the rest is up to the cyclist to choose where, when and if they sleep and the route in between. There’s no maximum or minimum times.
  • Unmatched: This is Europe’s longest single stage unsupported bike race. Riders cover a minimum of 2000 miles, with a mountain checkpoint high into the Alps over the Stelvio Pass.
