On an average bike tour Oliver rides up to 400 kilometers – a day. During his bike travels all over the world he discovered his passion for unsupported long distance cycling.
Now Oliver starts his next big adventure: The Transcontinental Race starting July 29, 2016 is his biggest challenge so far. He will ride from Belgium to Turkey. He wants to overcome the approximate distance of 4,000 kilometers and climb up to 40,000 meters in altitude – including the Swiss Alps and the mountains of Montenegro – as fast as possible. As the Transcontinental is a self-supported race, Oliver will be all by himself. There is neither prize money nor a trophy to win. It's all about pushing the boundaries and the passion for cycling.
The film crew of Bud and Terence will have a look at cycling from a different perspective. They try to approach Oliver as an unorthodox cyclist, preparing for this race. The crew will follow him on the fight against himself on the unforgiving way to Turkey.
