Over a dozen heroic videogaming cyclists will be taking on the
mammoth 352-mile, four-country, three-day challenge for the fifth
consecutive year, between August 20th – 22nd, in an effort to raise funds for numerous UK-based youth and children’s charities.
Generating valuable funds for the worthwhile causes and hot on the wheels of gamescom, one of the toughest work weeks of the year, the troop will kick away their collective stabilisers with a 5am start from Cologne on Saturday 20th August. The two-wheeling troop will set out across Germany, heading straight for the Dutch and Belgian borders, before finally venturing into France for the home straight.
Averaging close to 110 miles a day for 3 days solid, their mighty distances are on par with those endured by Le Tour De France’s most challenging routes. Hi-Rez will be supporting the cyclists with a sponsored van that will provide much needed aid every mile on the way.
Supporting them at every mile will be the community team over at Hi-Rez Studios who along with their fans will be closely following the route.
