CykelVasan 90 - 2014

When entry registration to CykelVasan 2014 opened early on Sunday morning at 09.00, the 12,000 start places for CykelVasan 90 were all taken in only 3 minutes and 21 seconds!
Two years ago all places were taken in 48 hours, last year in 27 minutes and this year all were taken even faster.  
Well, the early bird caught the worm and managed to bag 2 start places in next year's CykelVasan 90.

With the start in Sälen, you ride via all the famous control checkpoints to the finish in Mora. CykelVasan is now a classic just like the winter Vasaloppet. It's a race that appeals to both recreational and elite cyclists alike.

Having both competed in Vasastafetten the past 2 years, we thought another challenge was there to be taken, why not ride the entire course? I know some will ask, "why not take your skis and compete the Vasaloppet?". Well, the entry for that race is sold out almost as quickly 1 year prior to the race start so having not begun our journey at that point we missed out....but we'd need some serious cross-country ski training to handle 90km!
