Storforsen MTB Classic 2020
CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19. NEW DATE 2021. PURCHASED TICKETS WILL BE REFUNDED.
Magnificent and challenging. Side by side with one of Europe’s largest rapids. Meet nature, the paths and one of Norrbotten’s crown jewels. On June 13 2020, we will arrange Storforsen MTB Classic. A scenic bike race for both elite, children and exercisers.
In Storforsen, the power from the more than 400 km long Piteå River is concentrated. Here, the melting water from the Sulitelma glacier rushes by, on its way to the coast and the sea.
By the river side, both humans and animals have left tracks in the form of paths and other routes. On June 13 2020, we will arrange Storforsen MTB Classic. A bicycle race that combines a fantastic environment with an interesting and varied track. Storforsen MTB Classic will offer a 60-, 30- and 10-kilometer alternative for elite, exercisers and children. In other words, this is a race for anyone who loves to cycle outside the city and the road. From families with children to groups of friends and the ones with a winning mentality.
Those who wish a pleasant stay in connection with the competition can find comfort, good food and other interesting activities at Hotel Storforsen which is located directly adjacent to the competition area.
Welcome to an unbeatable experience and challenge. Welcome to Storforsen MTB Classic 2020.
MEET NATURE & A CHALLENGE
Storforsen MTB Classic offers a combined nature experience and an MTB race by Piteå River and Storforsen. In the area there is an extensive network of both paths and forest roads that pass through the magnificent environments.
The exact route will be completed in the spring of 2020, but roughly speaking, there will be three alternatives with distances measuring approximately 60, 30 and 10 kilometers. Storforsen MTB Classic will thus be a race where both avid cyclists, exercisers and children can participate. The classes Elite and Exercise consist of a men’s and women’s class.
The 60-kilometer alternative will run on both the north and south sides of the Piteå River, while other distances will remain on the north side. Along the route, there will be control stations for liquid and energy filling as well as various forms of officials along the route who are responsible for safety, logistics and service.
The award ceremony takes place after the finish line at Hotel Storforsen. Here you have the opportunity to spend the night, eat, rest and take part in other entertainment in connection with the race.
Storforsen MTB Classic is arranged in collaboration with Piteå Cykelklubb, Vidsels IK and Bredsels Bygdeförening.
