Alvogen Midnight Time Trial Held for the Second Year Running

For the second year running, Alvogen held its Midnight Time Trial in Reykjavik, Iceland on 4 July. The trial is a cycling competition designed to find the fastest cyclists in the country and this year all enrolment fees were directly donated to the UNICEF emergency fund to assist children in southern Sudan. As the principal sponsor of this event, Alvogen was keen to attract attention to the fact that far too many children in the world miss out on the fundamental right to an education. This is but one of the initiatives organized under the umbrella of Alvogen’s Better Planet program and this year the group and its staff in over 30 countries around the globe managed to collect over $100,000, thanks also to the proceeds of various fund-raising events organized by the Alvogen family this year.

Like last year, the start line for Alvogen's Midnight Time Trial was in front of the capital’s stunning Harpa Concert Hall building down by the harbour. The road was virtually turned into a velodrome, as traffic was diverted to make way for the competition. A hundred of the fastest cyclists in the land took part in what turned out to be an exciting and tight competition that attracted a crowd of over five hundred spectators.

The winners in the triathlon category (32 KM) were Hakon Hrafn Sigurdsson and Hanka Kupfernagel. This is the second consecutive win for Hakon Hrafn in this category, since he also won it last year, and Hanka Kupfernagel travelled especially all the way from Germany to be able to compete. In the road cycling category the winners were Oskar Ómarsson and Maria Ogn Guðmundsdóttir.

Iceland is the home of Alvogen's sister company, Alvotech, which is building a new biotech plant in the center of Reykjavik.
