Seven IWC Teams Complete the TORTOUR for Laureus

This week, the tenth TORTOUR multi-day nonstop ultracycling event took place. Representing the Laureus Foundation Switzerland , seven teams from IWC Schaffhausen were among the competitors.

For the second time, IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr was present at the starting line. Through a crowdfunding campaign the participants raised until now a total of CHF 60,000 for a social sports project run by the Laureus Foundation Switzerland.​

You'd be forgiven for thinking that the name "TORTOUR" almost sounds like "torture", and for good reason: in the highest difficulty category of the race, 1000 kilometres and a number of Swiss Alpine passes lie between the start and the finish in Schaffhausen. The participants are on the go day and night, meaning that their support teams also need to be available around the clock.

The team with Grainger-Herr, Swiss professional cyclist Simon Zahner and IWC watchmaker Samuel Vuillemez finished the "CHALLENGE", the medium-length course of 550 kilometres, in 6th place.
