Cykelnerven is Europe’s most unique and challenging charity cycling event. Riders from the US, Ireland, Belgium and the UK joined 300 Danes, as they took on the toughest climbs of the Tour de France. This year the cyclists took on Galibier, often the highest climb in the Tour de France. They conquered col de l’Iseran, the highest paved pass in the Alps.
Most importantly, the cyclists raised over $20,000, for MS research. This will help fund:
- The brightest junior researchers from low and middle income countries to complete placements in world-leading MS research centres, developing crucial skills and expertise they can bring back to help transform the MS landscape in their home country.
- The international collaboration to end progressive MS. The International Progressive MS Alliance combines the best scientific minds from across the globe, doctors, industry, and people affected by progressive MS to fund ground-breaking research to accelerate new treatments for progressive MS.
This truly was an incredible event, and one that our cyclists will remember forever.
Fernando, Trivago Team Captain said:
“For me the trip was a realization of a dream I had since a teenager, watching the Tour de France, and expecting to one day to ride the same routes as the pros.”
