Self-supported road race
After a successful first Bikepacking.be challenge named ‘DuoDiagonaal’ (featured in issue 5), my brother Laurens and I decided to take on the 2nd challenge named ‘De Zeeuw van Vlaanderen‘ on October 1.
The rules are easy. Self-supported, which means no help from outside, no resupply posts etcetera. Visit all checkpoints in random order, this time 13(!) of them scattered across the Dutch province Zeeland.
The group start was in Woensdrecht at 8:00h. 298 kms later we crossed the finish line (same place) at 21:23h. Sixth place!
