From Copenhagen to Halden – through Denmark, Sweden and Norway:
From the King’s Copenhagen to the harbour in Halden. Alongside the beautiful coast in Bohuslän, Sweden, crossing through the old region of Østfold in Norway, up the monster hill to Norefjell and following the lakes at Haldenvassdraget to the final.
958 km has to be ridden before the first winner of Tour of Scandinavia will be awarded in Halden on August the 14th.
The stages are built around the experiences from the former Ladies Tour of Norway and the rider will recognize some of the roads on the Norwegian stages.
But there are a lot of news, like the first stage at the island Sjælland in Denmark and the coastal stage in Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast. 6 stages through three countries is something totally new in the ladies World Tour.
The Queen stage will be the mountain stage to Norefjell with a 10 km long climb to the finish on the mountain.
But previous races have shown that the undulating stages in Østfold also can split the peloton. So with all the best riders in the world present there will for sure be 6 exciting and fast stages.
