Heroes of the Stelvio

At the start of the year, our colleague Herman Briké became one of the ambassadors for Climbing for Life 2019. Saturday 15th of June was D-day for him and Herman climbed the mythical Stelvio together with his fellow ambassadors.

Climbing for Life
Climbing for Life - in cooperation with the Diabetes Liga and Association Belge des Diabètes - wants to bring diabetes under the attention and wants to encourage people to move more. The past 6 months Herman – who is a diabetes patient himself – was prepared together with 11 fellow ambassadors under medical supervision for the climb of the Passo Dello Stelvio by bike.

1500 Belgians travelled to Bormio (Italy) for the annual bike event. Saturday the 15th of June was D-day with the actual climbing of the mighty mountain! All of the ambassadors reached the top thanks to an intensive training schedule and a lot of willpower. The cyclists were supported during the climb by ex-world champions Johan Museeuw and Etienne De Wilde who also participated.

What an accomplishment! What an achievement! Hats off for these heroes of the Stelvio.
