Nordic Gravel Series #2 - Uppsala (SE)

Uppsala, Sweden

May 31 – 1, 2024
8:00am – 8:00pm

Founded in the early Middle Ages and boasting a beautiful historic center, the city of Uppsala is certainly worth a gravel riding visit. The region offers good quality hardpack gravel roads, rolling forest roads and the occasional singletrack. On the first weekend of June, NGS features routes of 40, 80 and 160 km through scenic and forest landscapes northwest of the city.

The event provides race timing and marked roads and is part of the overall NGS 2024 classification. The 30 first riders in all categories are awarded points for the NGS 2024 season classification (3 best results taken in account). All participants in the race category need a license (elite, hobby or day license) of the Swedish federation or an international UCI license.

Start and finish at a new event location 20 minutes (10km) west of the city.

The full weekend program, accommodation options and rental bikes will be available by end of December. The event is limited to 400 participants. This event welcomes riders from all levels and fitness.

Practical information: Uppsala is just 45 mins north of Stockholm-Arlanda Airport and can easily be reached by train. Accommodation is available 5km from the event area or in the city center with NGS partners (more info and bookings from mid December). BMC URS rental bikes can be booked during the registration proces.
