Selection of Start Groups
In Styrkepröven, self-seeding is used by the participants. This means that you choose the time budget that best suits you and your goals. 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.
For 2020 it will be possible for Teams or clubs to reserve their own starting pools in closed pools. Those who wish for this please contact Styrkeprøven AS. For 2020 it will be possible for smaller clubs or groupings to get their own start. Probably, we will start 7 pools of 6 riders in what we have called club start smaller clubs.
From Lillehammer the first 27 pools are reserved clubs associated with the Norwegian Cycle Federation. 3 of these reserved seats are reserved for women. The number of pools for women could be expanded as needed. After these starts regular big teams and regular pools. In the cyclosportive is the core of the cyclists from Lillehammer.
