Aspects of Nutrition and Sports

Severin Zotter won the Race Across America in 2015.  He bicycled about 5,000 kilometers from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States in 8 days, 8 hours and 17 minutes with a crew of 11 people following him.

We learned about the immense organization needed for the feat.

We were amazed by statistics we heard.  Here’s one:  Severin Zotter slept only eight hours during the whole journey of over eight days! 

We got a feeling for the unwavering focus, commitment and determination that extreme sports entail.


Many thanks to Severin Zotter!
