Local | Lidingöloppet MTB opens registration for 2017

By on May 15, 2016
Today opens notification to Stockholm’s biggest mountain bike race, Lidingöloppet MTB, which is organized for the fifth time on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Special prematurely entered!

This year Lidingöloppet MTB conducted May 7, 2016 and became a real sunshine story that attracted over 1,800 cyclists to the scenic places, and technical track in Lidingö. This year was the fourth edition and the event has evolved over the years, with new sponsors and more abutments. Here, riders choose between 63 km and 23 km of competition classes for young people or Little Lidingöloppet MTB for children between 6-11 years.

This year’s event was a real hit and we‘re pleased to look forward to next year. We have received very positive feedback from both participants, functionaries, Lidingö residents and partners. It gives us strength and energy to jointly continue developing this race, says Tomas Hoszek, General Secretary Lidingöloppet.

Next year arranged Lidingöloppet MTB on Saturday 6 May and already at 12 May opened the notification for both the main class of 63 kilometers and the new distance of 23 km. Both races have classes for both racers and athletes in several age categories. The hope is to continue to develop the event and the goal is to collect over 2500 cyclists on Lidingo in May 2017.

We want to constantly improve the arrangement based on the feedback we receive from all participants and is currently in the evaluation of the year. While it feels great to be able to open the notification immediately and put a special rate for early applicants. With this change, we want to encourage cyclists to sign up in advance to be able to stay motivated to exercise during the year and then come well prepared to the start line next spring, says Sandra Jansson Bröms, project manager Lidingöloppet MTB.

Registration is as from May 12 open on the website for all classes except the Little Lidingöloppet MTB, which opens later this year. The special price applies to the first month until June 12th.
