Tortour Switzerland 2016

It’s the biggest multi-day non-stop ultracycling event in the world: this is the 8th TORTOUR event!
The road cycle race with start and finish lines based at Schaffhausen demands everything from the athletes.
Within only 48 hours, they have to conquer a 1,000-kilometre course including four Alpine passes, riding either solo or as part of a team.
Despite the Olympics taking place at the same time, numerous high-profile participants are taking part.
Some of them will also be participating in the 2nd official Swiss Ultra-Cycling Championships simultaneously carried out on the TORTOUR route.

After a heated head to head battle, Lionel Poggio was able to pull away from the favourite Ralph Diseviscourt to win the Solo Men category with a time of 39h 59min, and became the new Swiss ultra-cycling champion. Nicole Reist crossed the finish line with a time of 43h 28min taking the win and the first Swiss Championship title in the women’s category.
