 WebTALKS Presents: Ultracycling Champion Christoph Strasser Nov. 29
After surviving a car crash, Strasser has gone on to win several ultra-cycling races, and is a five-time winner of Race Across America.

Webster University Vienna presents the second biennial WebTALKS event, featuring ultracycling superstar Christoph Strasser. Strasser will speak from the Webster Vienna campus, the Palais Wenkheim, on Nov. 29 at 6:30 p.m. local time.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to purchase Strasser's book and get it signed. Please note the talk will be in English.

Two years after suffering multiple broken bones in a car accident, Strasser won the Race Across America Challenge, widely known as the most difficult bicycle race. Strasser then went on to set world record times in crossing Australia from Perth to Sydney and at the Velodrome in Grenchen. He will talk about his journey of unforeseen challenges, recovery, and mental strength, which will surely inspire.


Prior to Nov. 13, only Webster students and alumni may register, before being opened up to the public. Please register by emailing

Space is limited and seating is on a first come-first served basis.
