The day before (2 sept)…
Anticipating tomorrow’s big event, here are some images of Askersund that the bikers will reach at their 256 km of the 315 km. You can also appreciate their landscape on to Motala and how they will be greeted by the fellow biker just after entering Östergötalands län (district), some 20 km before the finish line.
Today’s activities in Motala were focused on several shorter MTB-races, with a broad participation of enthusiasts of all ages and levels. The two hosts helped participants (and the public) to navigate to the assigned start lines and times.
Throughout Friday, the 3 September, excitement was in the air, as participants registered, checked their bikes and adjusted their plans on how to handle the challenge of this amazing tour.
