Last Man Standing

The Transcontinental Race 2018 is, reluctantly, almost over.

It's been nearly 40 days since riders departed Geraardsbergen, and the last dot left on the map, that of rider 171, Neil Matthews, looks to be due to finish at some point this weekend, thus bringing the race to a close.

Neil has been the only rider left in the race for some 11 days, and ridden almost the entirety of it alone, well after the fanfare that follows the main field has departed and gone home.

It's been a mammoth show of determination and perseverance to continue on in such a manner, and as a result, Neil has won lots of supporters on the way.

Follow Neil on Instagram, or simply watch his dot, as it edges ever-closer to Meteora over the coming hours.
