This event is part of the Gravel Earth Series 2023
The Bergslagen area, located in central Sweden, is the cradle of the Swedish early industrial wonder with its countless mines and iron ores. Historical villages, connected by excellent gravel roads, are spread out amid the vast forests, lively streams and humble hills.
The gravel exploration of the area has just begun, and we invite you to explore the natural beauty and harsh hills in the Kilsbergen mountain range, the picturesque surroundings of Nora as well as the culinary gifts of Grythyttan and beyond. The venue for this years event is the beautiful old town of Nora. Routes of 60, 106 and 197km + a 197km timed race option. The event is limited to 600 participants. We welcome riders from all fitness levels for a social weekend of gravelgrinding.
"Uniting some of the most impressive events in the world, the Gravel Earth Series was born with the aim of driving Gravel to the highest standards.
Respect for the environment, love for the territory and values with a positive impact are the result of the creation of the first Gravel Earth.
A series of events that inspire and transmit Gravel with all its attractions, the best tracks, the best views with different formats, dream routes and lots of parties."
