Rio 2016: Switzerland on two wheels!
The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are about to kick off. Switzerland has a rich history in the Olympic disciplines, and the Swiss Olympic team at the XXXI Olympiad will no doubt do its best to make its mark in Brazil. The House of Switzerland invites you to discover in a surprising way the sporting categories in which Switzerland has performed brilliantly in the past and will attempt to make waves in the world's capital of Samba! #HoppSwiss
2 wheels sports
- Road (6-7/10 August)
- Track (11-16 August)
- BMX (17-19 August)
- Mountain Bike (20-21 August)
When it comes to cycling the Swiss are quite gifted here too. Switzerland on two wheels collects cups, as we have seen on the Olympic podiums ever since the 1936 Olympics. And what is going to happen in 2016 when Switzerland will be represented by the world's very best, including Fabian Cancellara, Jolanda Neff and Nino Schurter?
