Get ready for a new experience! Tour des Fjords Experience is a 3-day stage race for amateur riders of all levels.

The Stavanger region offers a perfect terrain for the event which will be made of 3 very different stages. You will experience some of the most beautiful and demanding roads Norway has to offer when the race will take you from Lysefjord to the top of Lysebotn on the second stage. Twenty-seven hairpin turns and a 900m elevation gain in less than 10 kilometers is what you will need to face. To the contrary, the first and the third stages will give you the opportunity to ride fast. Firstly with an individual time trial on Friday evening and secondly with a tactical final stage on Sunday morning. Rest assured, Tour des Fjords Experience is an experience you will not forget!

If you do not have the opportunity to be in Stavanger on Friday for the time trial but still want to join the race, you can skip the first stage in exchange of a time penalty on your general classification time.
