Ulrich Bartholmoes's bikepacking kit list for Transcontinental Race No.8

Ulrich’s approach to minimalist packing over the course of the last couple of years continues with his kit list for the Transcontinental Race. The race is the definitive self-supported bicycle race across Europe which for the 2022 race starts in Belgium and finishes in Bulgaria. It’s a free route race connected by mandatory sections which will test not only riders’ physiques but their route planning and logistic skills. Crossing a whole continent is certainly challenging but even so Ulrich has forgone some comfort in favour of low weight and high speed.
