On Nov. 29, Webster Vienna welcomed Christoph Strasser, world record holder for setting the fastest time in one of the most grueling ultra-cycling races in modern history known as the Race Across America. Strasser gave words of inspiration during his speech, sharing that "even ordinary men, can achieve extra-ordinary things."

Strasser also took attendees on a journey through the ups and downs of his experience with the Race Across America challenge, giving guests a behind the scenes look at what it is like to prepare for and take part in a seven day ultra-cycling race.

He gave students, faculty and staff words of encouragement, explaining that one should never give up when it comes to their goals.

After the talk, guests were given the opportunity to ask questions, take pictures and buy his autobiography, "Der Weg ist weiter als das Ziel."
