The race:
Strömfors Bike X Pair introduces a new and fun racing format that challenges teams to utilize individual strengths wisely. This is how it goes down: A team of two persons has a challenging course to conquer with one bike of their own choosing. We recommend either MTB or CX bike because the race course will be somewhat technical and conditions potentially wet and muddy. The competitors can freely decide who rides and who runs. You may take turns in riding/running and you may carry the bike if you want. However, you must start and finish the race together both with your partner and the bike.

For spectators and support teams there's Café Ström & Fors which offers great coffee and tasty snacks along with music and first of May specialities. We welcome everybody to stay after the race and enjoy Vappu picnic together.

What’s included?
• Racing bib
• Locker rooms and showers

What do you need to bring?
• Your racing partner
• One bike (MTB or XC bikes recommended)
• Appropriate racing outfit
• Dry clothes
• Whatever you want for your Vappu picnic (optional but highly recommended!)

Date, time, and location:
• 1.5.2018 at Strömfors Outdoor Factory
