Family-owned bus company Thrasher Brothers Trailways recently attracted attention at the World Games 2022 in Birmingham, Alabama, with their Mercedes-Benz Tourrider Premium bus. The motorcoach, painted in metallic black, was used exclusively to transport selected top athletes to the various competition sites around Birmingham during the 10-day event.
According to Daimler Truck, the Tourrider, a new 45-foot, three-axle motorcoach with chrome-plated center star, sets the standard for design, comfort, technology, and individuality. It was specially designed for the North American market. You can read more about its release that was published by Chauffeur Driven last year.
Thrasher Brothers Owner Alan Thrasher says he was more than proud of this high-profile order: "There was no better time for us to showcase the exceptional Mercedes-Benz Tourrider Premium motorcoach than this superlative event. All athletes immediately felt at home on board. The vehicle is equipped with 56 travel seats and completely provides all the things you'd expect in a Mercedes-Benz, making a strong impression on all those involved."
A total of 3,600 athletes from all over the world took part at the World Games, which took place in the US for the second time since 1981. 110 nations fought for medals in 38 non-Olympic sports, including powerlifting, billiards, and tug-of-war.
“The drivers and athletes were highly impressed with the coach’s comfort and ride,” said Thrasher Brothers Owner & Secretary/Treasurer Alyce Davidson. “The time on the coach allowed drivers to share a bit of the southern hospitality and charm with the athletes.”
