Norwegian cyclists make an impression in international cycling.

This is the results of hard work over several years in their local clubs and teams. The new structure of seven regions are set up to reinforce this development and create regional environments to strengthen the conditions for talents towards the national team. The Arctic Heroes of Tomorrow Race is a unique opportunity to increase the team spirit and to practice in international competitions. That’s why we expand the foreign participation to six international teams and also now including Germany.

The president of the Norwegian Cycling Federation, Mr. Harald Tiedemann Hansen, is very grateful for the contribution that A.S.O. provide by organizing the Arctic Race of Norway.
