Maurice Brocco 400

24-hour race

22nd June - 23rd June 2019

The race

My bicycle, clearing me, cleaning
Living in eternity
Riding riding
Always spinning
Winning losing winning losing
Speeding into the horizon

June 26th is the anniversary of the death of Maurice Brocco called Coco, a early to mid 20th century road racer after whom the Leipzig based cycling project is named. In his honour, we will be leaving Leipzig on June 22nd ready to take on a tour just like road racers back in the days used to: cycling many miles without the streets being fenced off.

We will set up four different checkpoints along the route. The race starts and finishes in Leipzig. Further information concerning the other checkpoints will be be released soon.

Every checkpoint will provide a place to rest and some food to fuel your body and mind. Motorised transport to the next checkpoint or train station will be available if needed along the road.
