We have done test rides on the 2018 Saariselkä MTB Stages tracks!
At the moment, the trails are in perfect dry conditions. Also the water level in river Tolosjoki is lowest in years.
The total length of 2018 stage race is exactly 180km. The stages are 53km, 77km, and 50km long. We made biggest changes to the stage 1, which is now exactly 50km long and has two river crossing.
Stage 2 remains the same as last year. Stage 3 has now some faster and easier trails in the beginning of the stage.
