    "This is a great event, and when you're not completely stuffed it's nice to enjoy. When you are completely stuffed you arrive late into the camp and riders and staff take you in, look after you, make sure you're fed, hydrated, you know where your bags and the showers are and that you're not going to just collapse. Being surrounded by good people makes even the worst suffering bearable. This is too much fun! It's not safe, it's certainly not easy. It's the toughest bicycle stage race in the world. That’s IRONBIKE."

    "L'intensità e l'estrema violenza delle emozioni che ti regala l'IronBike non si possono scordare. Ogni giorno e' come andare all'inferno. Ogni giorno lotti per uscirne. Quando ci sei dentro vorresti mandare tutto all'aria. Scappare via da quella gabbia di matti alla velocita' della luce ma ... ma quando finisci la soddisfazione e' incalcolabile e ti lascia una cicatrice indelebile nel cervello ... That's IronBike!"

    "The IronBike is a horrible masochistic game played by a bunch of lunatics on the highest and most beautiful playground in the world. This game is beyond madness and is killing you softly but surely throughout the week..."

    "Ironbike is the most brutal exhilarating torture and fun you can have on a bike in a week, it’s not for everyone, but it’s for people who want to push themselves to the limits of Mind Body and Soul, I cannot recommend it enough, it won’t be around forever it is in it’s 21st year, a bit like Concorde people always wanted to fly on it and now they can’t. Do it while it’s still running... A true test of mind, body and soul. And I loved every second of it!"
