With the time 15 hours, 45 minutes and 38 seconds, the winner of the Tele2 Bike Tour, Samuel Skott, crossed the finish line in Vilnius. The Group Leadership Team started the race two days ago in Riga with the purpose to fearlessly raise money for a good cause.
It was a team of sore but determined competitors that reached the finish line in Vilnius today after having biked 352 kilometers from Riga. Throughout the race, the Leadership Team visited several cities, Tele2 stores and had the opportunity to visit SOS Children Villages to see what the money they are donating goes to. The final amount that was given to the organization at the end of the race was 300 000 SEK.
Allison Kirkby, President and Group CEO, comments: “It has been an amazing 2,5 days together with my team on the road. The fearless challenger spirit is a part of who we are but even if we all are competitive, I think that we have been brilliant at supporting and pushing each other throughout the race. I am also humbled by seeing first hand the SOS Children Villages work in Latvia and Lithuania and I am proud to be contributing to such a great organization.”
The winner of the race was a happy, but tired Samuel Skott, CEO of Tele2 Sweden.
“I am proud that I won the race and I am proud of the team. However, I am mostly proud of that we managed to gather 300 000 SEK to SOS Children Villages trough this race. It has been a great journey.”
