Race course European Championships Elite

Men Elite

In design and choice of course, we have focused on technical skills, altitude, and riding time, as well as fun, varied terrain. 

Apart from a few kilometers at the start at dirt-tracks, you go out in the terrain all the way until the third foodstation at Kvam Idrettspark.
The first 40 kilometers are in the mountains, woodland and flow paths. Then follows a 10 km climbing mainly on gravel, with little asphalt the first couple kilometers.  
The rest of the race in varied terrain at dirt-tracks and paths, and a litle part on asphalt.

Approximately:
Asphalt: 12 km, gravel/dirt-tracks: 25 km, paths 53 km.

Course description

To provide the best possible description, we have split the course into different sections:

1. To Krøkla, 0-20 km. After a gentle start on dirt-tracks for approx. 3 km, there is a relatively steep climb to the highest point of 1, 264 m a.s.l. Then there is a walking section, which gradually becomes a mountain trail. The course leads up and down through a spectacular mountain scenery, with a mix of trails and terrain. This section is not technically difficult, but the surface is challenging (rocks/moss/grass).

2. To Tjønnsæter, 20-31 km. After the Krøkla feed station (1,155 m a.s.l.), the course climbs towards Skarven and then to the start of the downhill stretch towards Gravdalen and Tjønnsæter. This section has highly technical trails early on, which gradually turns into fast flowing single-tracks down to Gravdalen. Runs on the upper side of Fjelltjønn. After Gravdalen, the course leads down to Tjønnsæter and the feed station where it changes character from mountain trail to forest track.

3. To Kvam Idrettspark, 31-42 km. From Tjønnsæter, there is a fast downhill section to where the course turns towards Kvam. This is where the most technically demanding part starts. After an uphill trail of some three kilometres, the course plunges down steep trails towards Kvam and the lowest point of the course (270 m a.s.l.). This far, at 42 km, most of the course has been made up of trails and terrain.

4. To Bakkom, 42-51 km. From Kvam Idrettspark, there is a steep dirt-road climb along Veikledalen, up to Leinebakken, and towards the feed station at Bakkom.

5. To Kringsætrin, 51-61 km. From here, the course follows route 419 for approx. 500 metres to Tjønnmorka. This is where all the courses for the Furusjøen Rundt races meet. The first section is on dirt road, and then there is a short stretch across terrain before you reach the feed station at Kringsætrin.

6. To Mysusæter and Vassmillom, 61-86 km. From Kringsætrin, only men and women elite continue in the direction of Bukkedalen. After a stretch of gravel road, we take you into a fun single track through Bukkedalen. At Rusten you reach the county road 444, and get a relatively slack climb on asphalt up to Mysusæter over about 9 kilometers.At Mysusæter there is a drink station before embarking on the last kilometers into the finishline. 
At Vassmillom it is the same course as for the rest of the Furusjøen Rundt MTB races. A good mix of fast-flowing trails and dirt roads, and spectacular views towards Rondane and Furusjøen.

8. To FINISH. 86-90 km. From Vassmillom, there is a dirt-road climb towards Haugseter, then a downhill stretch towards Hotel Rondablikk and to the finish line. From Vassmillom to the finish line, all races follow the same course.

In design and choice of course, we have focused on technical skills, altitude, and riding time, as well as fun, varied terrain.

This section has highly technical trails early on, which gradually turns into fast flowing single-tracks down to Gravdalen. The course has been changed slightly this year, and runs on the upper side of Fjelltjønn. After Gravdalen, the course leads down to Tjønnsæter and the feed station where it changes character from mountain trail to forest track.

3. To Kringsætrin, 31-46 km. This is the same course used for the rest of the Furusjøen Rundt races. The first section leads down towards Lauvåsfeltet on fast-flowing forest trails, and then across towards Tjønnmorka.

Welcome to Kvam!

In the central part of Gudbrandsdalen, 100 kilometers north of Lillehammer, you will find a spectacular mountain hiking terrain as well as a host of cultural experiences in an authentic setting.
On the eastern side of the valley, just above the tiny village of Kvam, you will find Rondablikk (Kvamsfjellet mountain) – a gateway to Rondane National Park.


Kvamsfjellet forms part of Nord Fron municipality, and is home to numerous mountain farms as well as some 900 cabins – of which approx. 300 are furnished to a very high standard.
A fantastic area with hundreds of kilometeres of tracks all year long from skiing, biking and hiking. The view to Rondane form a poetic frame around Furusjøen Rundt-triple, with the slogan «The Adventure of Rondane».
All the events making up the Furusjøen Rundt triple-race are held in the area around Furusjøen – the largest of several lakes in the region. Rondane is as made for mountain biking, and offers terrain for every taste.


The centre of Kvam is located 260 metres above sea level, whereas the mountain areas vary from 850 to 1350 metres altitude.
