The 2021 Ultimate Pyrenees Pursuit combines the best of the Catalan and Basque Pursuits into a single event—equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest six times over 2,700km…

Imagine climbing over 66,000 meters of elevation over a distance of only 2,700 km!

To put things into perspective, this is more elevation gain than the entire Trans Am race over just a third of its distance. It’s like climbing Mt. Everest over six times from sea level!

Set entirely in the Pyrenees, it’s the most spectacular and challenging mountain road bikepacking ride you’ll ever do! But will you be able to cross the finish line?

Most people will choose our shorter Basque Pursuit (Sept 19) and Catalan Pursuit (Sept 24) events. But if you love climbing mountains and want to explore your limits, the Ultimate Pyrenees Pursuit will come as a revelation.

This is a bikepacking event. The clock doesn't stop until you cross the finish. It's a self-sufficient event.
