Race info

 

The third incarnation of the Levi Enduro sees the event grow in to an international race as it is included in the EWS Qualifier calendar. Levi offers you a insight to a Lapland landscape far above the arctic circle located at a latitude of 67.8 degrees north. The race is easy to access even from abroad, Kittilä airport is only 14km from the venue. More information about travelling to Levi further down the page. The race is also a third round of the Sportax Enduro Series (Finnish Enduro Championship Series), and is supported by Pole Bicycles.

Race course

 
 

Race course consist of mostly natural terrain, hiking trails, grassy ski slopes, and sections from Levi bike park. The terrain on stages will be very varied and by the nature of local soil, there will be plenty of rocks. On transition stages we will use both pedal power and gondola ski lift depending on which stage we are heading to. Most stages will have between 200 - 300m of altitude drop.  

This is preliminary data about the race course, refinements as the event approaches:

  • Three stages on Friday
  • 8-10 stages on Saturday in total (some of the stages will be ridden twice during the race)
  • 500-800m of pedal powered ascending during the whole race
  • Ca. 2500m of on stage descending in total. More than any other enduro event North of European Alps.
  • Over 35min of on stage race time for the fastest riders. More than any other enduro event North of European Alps.
  •  
  • HUOM! Harraste ja Juniorit eivät aja kilpaa vielä perjantaina, ainoastaan lauantaina. Lauantaina Harraste ja Juniorit ajavat pari ek:ta vähemmän kuin täysi matka.

The final race course map will be published on Wednesday evening 26.7.

Any practice on trails marked or under construction for the race from start of the week to Thursday 10:00 is strictly forbidden.
