Among the 2022 objectives: a great Sun Trip America edition !
Here is a preview of the route, a 7500 km transamerica route, which may change slightly in the coming months. Two ideas are guiding the design of the route: the greatness of natural landscapes and technological innovation.
This test edition will not be a race, but will take the form of a collective and united adventure, with a group of 15/20 participants who will meet at the checkpoints along the route. The objective will not be to arrive first but to arrive all together! A challenge by points will be proposed for the fastest. It will also be possible to participate in only one or two stages.
The group will be mainly made up of participants from North America. The Sun Trip organization will not take care of any bike transportation, neither from Europe nor to the USA.
They will ride without external assistance, in autonomy, with the aim of validating an itinerary that could become the mythical route of a great Sun Trip America in the years to come.
