As we are about to enter day 5 of the 2015 Trans-Provence, the deck of cards is far from shuffled. Nico Lau is leading with a very slim margin over Jamie Nicoll. One minute and 21 seconds with two full-on race days to go. Chris Johnston and Matti Lehikoinen remain a threat as well, being just 2 minutes and 39 seconds behind Lau. One flat tyre, a crash or any other misfortune might just change the outcome of this incredibly tight race. Tracy Moseley has a more comfortable lead of 6 minutes and 26 seconds over her closest competitor, Anka Martin, whilst Claire Buchar is very close to stealing second from Anka. Yet the Trans-Provene is not only about racing. 80 participants ride. Some race, others are here to enjoy incredible trails in stunning landscapes in vast remote areas. Often, words fail to describe the experience that is the Trans-Provence. Here's a picture recap of the past four days.
