Local athlete Fabio Spiteri is set to embark on another challenge as he plans to cycle non-stop around Sicily in under 48 hours to collect funds for animal shelters across Malta and Sicily!
Back in 2020, the athlete cycled around Sicily in two days and eight hours, covering 950km in the process. Spiteri then bettered his previous time by 16 hours and was the third-fastest cyclist in history to do so.
Despite having trained in Sicily for several Ironman triathlons, last year’s challenge was plausibly the most gruelling.
On top of that, Spiteri had to cope with the appalling weather conditions which pummelled him and his backup team for hours.
