Nicole Reist takes overall victory at the Adriatic Cycling Marathon. The Swiss ultracycler Nicole Reist and SuddenRush Ambassador has created the ultracycling sensation par excellence: She left all men behind in the Italian non-stop Adriatic Cycling Marathon and was the first woman ever to win over 1200 kilometers and 7000 meters in altitude in 43 hours and 54 minutes the overall victory in an ultracycling race.

The 36-year-old Nicole Reist is a passionate ultracycler, i.e. long distance cyclist, and lives in Weisslingen, near Winterthur in Switzerland. She is multiple world champion, European champion and Swiss champion and has won numerous well-known ultracycling races over several thousand kilometers non-stop - including twice the legendary Race Across America, the toughest cycle race in the world, over almost 5000 kilometers from the American west to the east coast . This year she wanted to race again and make history again. Because of the corona pandemic, she had to postpone this goal to 2021 and instead wanted to raise the bar in ultracycling again with the combination of the Race Around Austria and Race Across France with overnight transfers. After this project failed due to information from the organizers that was too late, she was now looking for a conciliatory end to the season at the Adriatic Marathon. Despite her extensive training schedule, she works full-time as a structural engineer in an architecture office. Get more information at
