What is The Tour of Sufferlandria you ask?
The Tour of Sufferlandria is an annual "virtual stage race" put on by The Sufferfest. The stages involve riding one and sometimes two The Sufferfest videos each day for 9 days straight. Each year features charitable donations are collected to benefit an important cause. This years' donations are going to support the Davis Phinney Foundation.
"The Tour of Sufferlandria is about doing 9 days of Sufferfest videos in a row. You do the rides from the relative discomfort of your own home or in a group at one of The Sufferfest's Officially Licensed Facilities."
