Tortour Fundraiser in Switzerland by Kjell Andersen and Stefan Huber
The Tortour Race (www.tortour.com) is a non-stop bicycle road race around Switzerland. Participants have to ride a course of 1050km/650miles and 15000m/49000ft. vertical. The course has 18 sections the two team riders alternate for a combined time.
Kjell Andersen and Stefan Huber raced in a two -men team to raise money for Wheels 4 Life. Besides their day jobs and their intense training program they also had the task of raising money and awareness for their choosen charity project.
The race was held in August 2013, after a slow start the team slowly worked their way into the top group during this strenuous race through the Swiss Alps. After 38hours and 51minutes they finished together with their support crew of five, in a respectable 8th place in the category 2-men teams.
Congratulations for your efforts on and off the bike and a big thanks for collecting approx. $ 3600.-, enough money to buy nearly 30 bicycles!
