We have made some changes to the tracks of Saariselkä MTB Stages 2018! Check out the changes here!
The single biggest change is that Stage 1 is now only 50km long with two river crossings. Last year we learned that 200km is a bit too much for a 3-day stage race in such a rough terrain. 🙂
The second major change we made for Stage 3. We took the Ruija trail away from the beginning of the stage. Now the beginning of the last stage is slightly faster and easier. This way most of you can spare some energy for enjoying the most amazing views of the weekend on the Raututunturi fells. 🙂
Because these changes none of our GPX-files are valid at the moment. We will publish the corrected files once the snow melts and we can ride the new stages (earliest in July).
