Every year in June the international road bike professionals compete at the Tour de Suisse. For most of them this race is a good preparation for the upcoming Tour de France two weeks later.
This year´s edition of the Tour de Suisse passed Wollerau at it´s 6th stage, where the home of X-BIONIC® is located. We decided to watch the Tour de Suisse racers live and supported them while riding uphill. It was a big pleasure to us when the field came up to Schindellegi, where we supported the riders with lots of other spectators. The front of the race had a gap of 13 minutes to the main field and nearly kept this until the finish in Meilen.

The local hero from Switzerland Gregory Rast finally won the race with a sprint of the four runaways. Peter Sagan won the mass sprint of the main field about 10 minutes after the winner. Now just watch and enjoy our photos from the race!
In April 2013 we started our first TeamRide ever. We planned this event to ride with our fans near Wollerau. The meeting point in Pfaeffikon (SZ) at the train station was a good place to gather and so we met there at the 14th of April 2013 at 10 am. The weather was perfect and the sun kept shining the during whole tour. The ride was planned for 105 kilometers, but we also offered a shorter version of 65 kilometers.
After our start we went over the Lake of Zuerich to Rapperswil and kept riding along the shore directly to Zurich. There we found a good place at the harbor for our break after the first 35 kilometers After this nice relaxing break the second part was also along the southern shore at the lake straight back to Pfaeffikon. Some of the team had ridden enough and signed off, but a small group of five kept going for 40 more kilometers around the east side of the lake.
Finally everyone was happy with the tour and we will keep this event alive. If you like to join the next TeamRide too, check our Facebook page and stay up to date for the next tour or just write an email to us. See you!
