  • Jorge and Kiko Montoro cycled from Torre del Mar to Copenhagen then competed in one of the world's toughest sporting challenges

Jorge and Kiko Montoro, the twin brothers who cycled from Torre del Mar to Copenhagen and then took part in the city's Ironman competition have returned to their hometown having completed their challenge.

Despite difficult weather conditions, including strong winds and heavy rain on the day of the competition, the brothers finished in just over 10 hours.

They were met by family members in Copenhagen and stayed with Lars Aarup, their friend and team mate at the Axarquía triathlon club who lives in Torre del Mar but is from Copenhagen.

Jorge and Kiko, 37, who are both PEteachers in Malaga, decided to do the journey by bike and Ironman to celebrate having both recovered from brain tumours recently.
