On 26th of June at 7am 11 riders left Andermatt

On 26th of June at 7am 11 riders left Andermatt for 1300km with nearly 30000m vertical climb of the second edition of Swiss-BikeAdventure with the first Grand Depart.
The first day of the event was truly idyllic: perferct weather, long but beautiful climbs of Susten pass and Grosse Scheidegg, riders were moving fast forward with accompaniament of cows bells. Since day two heavy rains with thunderstorms slowed many, riders were forced to take unplanned brakes due to wet weather and strong winds. Despite challenging weather conditions 7 of the riders made it to the finish line in Andermatt.
Christoph, Michele, Kai, Irena, Pavel, Urs, Carsten – massive thanks for your relentless pursuit of adventure that has brought you back to little devils statue for the finishers photo – totally soaked and cold but happy! Maria, Marcel, Nora, Sylvian – we hope to see you again in Andermatt!

Registration for ITT will be open till September:

Carsten finished in 6 days and 4 hours

Carsten Honemann arrived after 6 days and 4 hours the little devil statue at the finish in Andermatt. Not sure he could make it, since the rim of his rear wheel got cracks around more and more spokes. At the finish the wheel looked a bit scary. Despite the problem, he decided to cycle at daytime only. At the end he got rewarded with sunshine and blue sky over last big climbs Nufenenpass and Furkapass.

Congratulations Carsten!

Urs finished as 6th

Urs Arnold Kutschera, a longdistance cyclist veteran. Urs finished as 6th very demanding Swiss-BikeAdventure course. First 2 days Urs had issues with his tubeless tyres and a loosen disc. And a bad stomach slowed him down too. Nevermind Urs continued riding despite unusual bad weather conditions with heavy storms from the Jura on.

Congratulations Urs!

The only woman finisher

Irena Sosinska – the only woman finisher of the Swiss-BikeAdventure this year. Due to hydraulic breaks complete failure just before the start of the race, she had to change to new and unfamiliar bike and then she climbed Col Du Chasseral twice because of a thunderstorm which caught her on the climb and forced her to back down to a safe place. On the way to Schaffhausen she carried her bike over fallen trees that blocked the road after a passing storm the night before. She arrived to the finish line after 1300km with nearly 30000 elevation gain in 5 days and 11 hours.

Congratulations Irena!
