Of course we hope that you will come out to see the ladies in this years Ladies Tour of Norway. But if you don’t have the possibility to be here, there are several ways to follow the action from the first ever World Tour-race in Norway.
In Norway, the race will be transmitted live on TV2 (main channel), but you can also see LToN worldwide.
Thursday’s prologue will be possible to follow on our homepage https://www.battleofthenorth.eu/.
The stream will also be available at http://www.sport2400.com/. This is not really a full TV-production, and you will probably miss some graphics. There will not be any dedicated TV-commentators, but you will be updated by the race announcer.
That means you will have the full overview at the 3 km long prologue with start and finish at the square in the center of Halden. And if you are on site the races will be live on the big videoboard in the finish area every day.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday the stages will be live on Norwegian TV2 (main channel) with the commentators Christian Paasche and Johan Kaggestad on site.

Friday Aug 18th: Halden – Mysen, 16:40-18:20
Saturday Aug 19th: Sarpsborg – Fredrikstad, 16:40-18:20
