2017 TORTOUR Ultracycling

TORTOUR Ultracycling

August 18 - August 20 2022

TORTOUR is the biggest multiday nonstop ultracycling event in the world. The race which starts and finishes in Schaffhausen, demands a great deal of its cyclists and crews. Riding non-stop, day and night, the athletes have to overcome the 1,000 km route over several Alpine passes in only two days, either solo or in a team. Mastering this challenging adventure takes blood, sweat and tears – but the unique cycling experience and feeling of achievement is worth it! 2017 the official Swiss Ultra-Cycling Champions will be crowned for the third time in the TORTOUR format. The event kicks off with the prologue at the famous Rhine Falls.


TORTOUR: 1,000 km, 13’000 m of climb
CHALLENGE: 550 km, 7,000 m of climb
SPRINT: 370 km, 4,000 m of climb

Participants must be over 18 years of age (TORTOUR) or over 16 (CHALLENGE/SPRINT) and can be professional athletes or ambitious amateur cyclists. www.tortour.com
