Donation handover: Team Arlberg collects EUR 21,540 for the Brotherhood of St. Christoph at the Race Around Austria!
Marco Jordan from Pettneu am Arlberg and Thomas Kofler from Feldkirch, both members of the St. Christoph Brotherhood, rolled off the launch pad in St. Georgen im Attergau on August 11th. Ahead of them lay 2200 kilometers and 30,000 vertical meters - non-stop with the racing bike on the outer border around Austria. The goal and the mission: To reach the finish line healthy on the one hand at the toughest cycle race in Europe, the Race Around Austria, on the other hand to collect donations for the Brotherhood of St. Christoph!
Marco Jordan: “For many families, the Corona time was and still is a very difficult one. There are many who can no longer practice their profession or have to endure blows of fate. If we're going to start such a slightly “crazy” race, then we wanted to do it for a good cause. So it all made an even deeper sense! "
Thomas Kofler: “We both have a lot in common with the Arlberg. That's why we decided to start this race for the St. Christoph Brotherhood. The race was a sporting challenge, but we made it together as the Arlberg team. It was a very profound experience to be able to hand over a donation to the brotherhood with the great conclusion! "
21,540 Euros collected
Donors from near and far have transferred this impressive sum directly to the account of the St. Christoph Brotherhood for the “TEAM ARLBERG” campaign.
Started to finish - in the finish on the podium in third place!
Who would have thought this at the beginning of the race - the “TEAM ARLBERG by RadHaus Rankweil” on the podium at the Race Around Austria! Actually nobody, because the goal was to arrive at the goal. However, nothing has been left to chance in the supervisory team around the team leaders Johannes Scalet and Sandra Köck. Over a period of six months, the 14-person supervisory team invested an incredible amount in preparation. The race was meticulously timed down to the last detail.
And it was worth it! The jubilation around the “rookie team” from the west at the finish line was unbelievable: After 3 days, 2 hours and 8 minutes, Marco and Tom crossed the finish line in third place in the two-man competition. Sporty 10 hours below the allotted time.
