Watch the Video: Going AWOL in the Transcontinental Endurance Race

  September 4, 2013

Erik Nohlin of Specialized recently completed the Transcontinental bike race from London to Istanbul. It was a grueling two-week ride through harsh weather and over mountain passes, with little sleep and no team support allowed. A film crew followed Erik, who rode a Specialized AWOL touring bike with Gates Carbon Drive, and his Specialized colleague Recep Yesil as they battled the elements and exhaustion. The trailer below tells the story. A feature-length movie of their journey will be released in late 2013.
