Last night, IWC was pleased to participate in an event preceding the upcoming ultra cycling race, Tortour. A testament to human endeavor and endurance, Tortour is easy to liken to The Everest of cycling.

A screening of a movie called “It’s All About…” illustrated just how extreme the challenge is for its athletes. The movie portrayed 6 cyclists in different races, it included IWC friend Daniel Wyss. During these races, athletes endure the most extreme conditions and labor intensely to complete runs of up to two days straight (48 hour rides). The finish line a goal reached only by very few. In fact, according to the film, fewer people complete ultra cycling races a year than actually climb Mount Everest.

Wyss, a hero of Tortour and of ultimate cycling challenges around the globe, is not at all deterred by past intensity. He showed great excitement for the race to come. We wish him, and all participants, all the best from Schaffhausen.
