What our participants say.

That’s us.

The TORTOUR is the largest multi-day non-stop ultracycling event in the world. The race, which starts and finishes in Zurich, demands everything from cyclists and their crew: a 1000-kilometer non-stop race over several Alpine passes around Switzerland can be conquered in just two days – day and night, solo or in a team. In addition, the TORTOUR Gravel is the first multi-day stage race on gravel roads and has been held since 2016. Solo or in teams of 2, the participants complete a total of 180 kilometers – on the most beautiful gravel routes in Switzerland.
