January 15, 2020
Annual Fundraiser to Benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation heads into its 8th Year
January 15, 2020 – The Sufferfest, a comprehensive training app for cyclists and triathletes, today announced the route of the 2020 Tour of Sufferlandria, their annual fundraiser to benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation. Billed as “The Greatest Grand Tour of a Mythical Country in the World”, the Tour of Sufferlandria will take place February 15-23, 2020. It challenges riders to complete nine straight days of “stages” comprised of videos from The Sufferfest catalog of structured, high-intensity workouts.
This is the eighth edition of the Tour of Sufferlandria, which attracts thousands of riders from around the world who take on the personal challenge at home or at one of more than 160 Sufferlandrian Embassies worldwide. Over the past four years the Tour has raised over $700,000 for the Davis Phinney Foundation and their programs to help those affected by Parkinson’s Disease.
To participate in the Tour, riders register and donate at least $10 to the Davis Phinney Foundation. For every $10 a rider donates or raises through their individual fundraising page, they earn one chance at the prize pool. This year, The Sufferfest has partnered with Tour sponsors AltRed, Col Collective Cycling Tours, and Wahoo Fitness to provide three premiere prizes: a year supply of AltRed natural performance supplement, a Col Collective “Taming The Ventoux” cycling tour, and a Wahoo KICKR Smart Bike. Other sponsors—including iKOR, Speedplay, TrainingPeaks, VeloInk, Giro, Rapha, Oakley, and others have donated prizes worth more than $25,000.
“We’re amazed at how the Tour of Sufferlandria brings the community together every year to help those affected by this disease” said American Cycling Legend and Davis Phinney Foundation founder Davis Phinney. “We have a saying in the Parkinson’s community that every victory counts. Completing the Tour isn’t just an accomplishment in itself, but one that helps those living with Parkinson’s achieve their own victories and live well today.”
