Birkebeiner, Norway

I'm really excited to be making one final addition to my 2011 race schedule: the Birkebeiner on Saturday 27th August. It's a huge race attracting 18,000 riders and in doing so it claims to be the largest bike race in the world! It's a 95km A to B race starting in Rena and finishing in Lillehammer. The unusual thing about it is that all riders must carry a 3.5kg backpack throughout the race, so I'll be racing with my Ergon backpack :) It'll be really nice to catch up with Nina Gassler who lives in Norway and races for Hardrocx Racing Team :D
