Brompton Hill Sprint at Tour de France Cycling Event in Switzerland, 17th of July


The Tour de France is spending three days in Switzerland in 2016 and will reach the Swiss Capital 18th of July. On Sunday 17th of July, Bromptoneers will be given the opportunity to participate at the "Credit Suisse Hill Sprint" in a special Brompton category. The short but steep hill they have to climb is right at the foot of the Federal Palace. The winner of the Hill Sprint wins an exclusive Brompton factory visit in London (including an introduction to Brompton frame brazing and a travel voucher for getting there).

The Hill Sprint is part of a large Cycling Festival in the historic center of Bern. Brompton will be present with a boot and invite people to take part at the Brompton Dexterity Contest, the Vintage Parade through the Old Town and the Slow-Up Corso on the original racing route through Bern.

Everybody is welcome to come and enjoy ! No pre-registration needed.
