Saturday September 11th The Nordic Trailblazer is heading into Nordsjørittet - 91 kilometers of gravel from Egersund to Sandnes.
Nordsjørittet is one of the biggest mass cycling events in Norway, and has under a normal year up to 8000 participants. It follows beautiful paths along the coast on the South West of Norway, and I am really looking forward to the race.
It's a solid start field in the Allroad/CX group, and the competition will be strong, but I hope to be fighting for the win. I know parts of the route from when I was in Egersund 2017, and I remember it was quite narrow and some steep climbs.
It's not too many meters elevation, so it should be fast.
