Countdown to June 22, 2013: T-22 weeks!
While time is running, we will introduce you every week to two athletes, which will be among the first to get challenged by the adventure of SWISSMAN.
Trix Zgraggen is a Swiss legend in endurance sports! As the first Swiss woman she started, finished and won the Race Across America last June! With her RAAM project „Trix against cancer“, she was able to donate 16’000 CHF to the Swiss cancer research. Although she initially had to resign from multisport events due to injury, SWISSMAN seems to be the right project to get engaged with another triathlon adventure, after several very successful years of cycling.

Her victories at the Infernotriathlon and Gigathlon let us suppose that Andrea will contribute to an exciting first SWISSMAN. She loves climbing mountains by bike or on foot and is looking forward to discover the SWISSMAN course which climaxes in her home territory. She knows the final climb to Kleine Scheidegg by heart and probably would find her way even with her eyes closed.
