Follow riders Day & Night taking on the 2018 TransAtlantic Way race – Go behind the scenes and into the dark, with riders Bjorn Lenhard & Tomy Mulledy as they competed earlier this year in the TransAtlantic Way ultra-endurance race for 2500km along Ireland’s Atlantic coast. The new film by Ben Page and supported by 7Mesh, Apidura & Canyon delivers stunning scenery, diving into what foes on in the cyclists’ minds who think such a long-distance, self-supported bike race is a good idea. Head over to Apidura’s journal for a look at the guys’ daily routines, an interview with the filmmaker, and a head-to-head contrast of the two very different ultra-endurance riders. Apidura.com
