The Sufferfest, creator of the world’s best cycling videos for individual and group training, announced its fourth annual Tour of Sufferlandria, the Greatest Grand Tour of a Mythical Nation. Running from February 6 through February 14, thousands of cyclists from more than 30 countries will embark on a nine-day suffering binge within the confines of their Bike Torture Chamber, Pain Cave, or Official Sufferlandrian Embassy.
The Tour of Sufferlandria is an indoor cycling event where riders complete nine consecutive days of Sufferfest videos. It is considered one of the most difficult indoor cycling challenges in the world. The route announcement is one of the most eagerly awaited press conferences on the cycling circuit and can be viewed here.
“This year’s 9-stage tour is not designed for Couchlandrians. For the first time ever, riders will be starting in the mountains and things hardly let up from there,” said David McQuillen, The Sufferfest CEO. “But, to ease the pain and soften the blow, riders have the opportunity to once again suffer for a cause and ride to benefit the Tour’s charitable partner, the Davis Phinney Foundation.”
Over the past four years, the Tour to-date has raised more than $165,000 for theDavis Phinney Foundation. Committed to supporting programs and research for Parkinson’s disease, the Foundation was founded in 2004 by Olympic medalist and cycling legend, Davis Phinney, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2000. With a $10 donation, Sufferlandrians are eligible for the Tour’s list of amazing prizes such as a road bike from BMC Bicycles and signed items by professional cyclists.
