The start in Gjøvik
The start in Gjøvik is Gjøvik Gård, address is Niels Ødegaards gate 3, 2815 Gjøvik.
Selection of Start Groups
From Gjøvik there are time groups for females only and mixed groups. We would like to stress – select wisely and do not select groups with a lower time budget than you can manage. The ride will be a lot harder if you do so.
From Gjøvik you can choose start time based on gender and time budget. There are separate pools for women only and mixed for everyone. Be sure to select a pool that suits your time budget. The ride will be a lot better if you ride a bike with those who have the same speed as you do.
You will receive your start number from the Secretariat. The start number with chip included shall be mounted / fixed to the seat post as per instructions.
The Secretariat in Gjøvik will be located at Gjøvik Gård, address is Niels Ødegaards gate 3, 2815 Gjøvik

Feeding Stops / Technical Service / Medical Support
Styrkeproven has three feeding stops from Gjøvik to Oslo. These stops are located at Totenvika, Stensby and Kløfta. On these feeding Stops you will meet representatives from various sports clubs or other organizations. They are all volunteers and extremely vital to our race.
