Business Sunrise - official sponsor of the Tortour
The multi-day "Tortour" non-stop cycle race cyclists, which takes riders through the whole of Switzerland, will be taking place from 18 - 21 August, 2016. The name says it all. Teams of two, four, or six riders complete a total of 1,000 km at a time. Even individual riders can take off from the starting line and ride the entire route alone. Individual riders and teams have 48 hours to complete the tour.
Business Sunrise is supporting the race with important telecommunications services and an M2M solution used in the track and trace devices of the athletes and tour leadership. These devices exchange data over the first-class Sunrise mobile network, enabling family and friends to see which pass or slope their loved one is pedaling up or through anytime, anywhere.
The Business Sunrise team of six at the starting line
A mixed team of six employees and customers from Business Sunrise are at the start ready to compete this year. They are already training hard to ensure that they have what it takes when the day comes. Even Sunrise Senior Vice President Business Customers, Markus Naef, will be participating in this unique race. He says: "For me the Tortour is a very special experience. In addition to the athletic challenge it presents, it also offers exciting networking opportunities on the C-Level."
