Following the successful first edition of last February, the organizer Tortour GmbH has decided to carry out the race again: the next TORTOUR Cyclocross will take place from 10 – 12 February 2017. Further details will follow in autumn 2016.
TORTOUR Cyclocross is the first multi-day cyclocross gravel stage race in the world and had its premiere from 12 to 14 February 2016 in Schaffhausen. Participants in this new ultra-cycling race must overcome a 200 km route with approximately 3000 metres of ascent across demanding terrain – all in challenging winter conditions.
The adventurous race unfolds over three days, leading cyclists across the varied terrain of the Swiss Central Plateau on a route that requires both technical skill and maximum stamina. The prologue takes place on Friday and covers around 15 km. Participants then go on to complete an approximately 100 km stage on Saturday and a 90 km stage on Sunday.
