Safety during Nordic Championships

Together with Road Saftey, mobile guards, commissioners and our  own guards, will IF Frøy do the utmost to ensure that security is as good as possible.

We have collaborated with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration, the police, Viken county municipality and the Norwegian Cycling Association to find routes that are both sporting good and traffic safe. At the same time, we want the race to create as little trouble as possible for the residents in the area.

The roads both in the  Time Trial and the Road  Race,will be closed in the opposite direction of the race. The exception is a bit on the Algarheim road and just before the roundabout with the E16 in the joint start. In both places there is a wide and nice road.

We remind cyclists to stay on the right side of the road. Even if the road is closed, we cannot guarantee that motorists will not enter the oncoming direction without detection of it.

During the time trial, we have stationary guards (who can stop traffic) at all important intersections. We also have mobile guards on motorbikes and   commissioners  cars on the route. During the Road Race  there are stationary guards at all important intersections. At the junction at the roundabout over the E16 there are also police. In front of each starting grouå there is a mobile guard on a motorcycle and a front car. Behind the field there is a commissioners car. We also have

Danish and Finnish riders must show a license

Riders from Denmark and Finland must show a valid Masters license when picking up their entry number.

All cyclists from Norwegian and Swedish clubs have had their license checked and therefore do not need to present a license certificate.

The envelopes of participants from Danish and Finnish clubs are marked with an red L (see picture) making it is easy for the secretariat and participants to see that the license should be checked.

The route for the Road Race has been changed

At the request of Viken County Council, the route for the Road Race has been changed in the first and last kilometres.

The county does not want Åsvegen to be used. Instead, the following pathways are used at the start:

The start and finish will be in Myrhusvegen in the same place as in the Time Trial. The cyclists turn right up Rambydalsvegen. At the junction with the Algarheim Road (Fv 178) turn right. The Algarheim road is followed to the junction with Åsvegen. Here the original route is followed to the junction of Fv 178 and E16 (roundabout). From here, follow Fv 450 until the cyclists turn right onto Rambydalsvegen.

The riders cycle two, three or four laps before turning right onto Myrhusvegen to the finish.

The course with the road to the start/finish is a total of 36.8 km, while the actual round without start/finish is 34.9.

It provides the following distances:

All women and men from 65 years and older ride 2 laps, which is 71.7 km
Men 50-54, 55-59 and 60-64 ride 3 laps, which is 106.6 km
Men 30-34, 35-39, 40-44 and 45-49 ride  4 laps, which is 141.5 km
