Ultra 610 – 310 – 150

Swedish Ultra bike 610, SUb 610, is a RAAM- Qualifier (RQ). It is done in RAAM-Style which means that a support vehicle is required.

2019 is the first year for the SUb 310 and SUb 150. These are not RAAM-qualifiers but maybe your first step for you and your crew to a longer distance.

All race distances are open to solo riders, two person teams and tandems. Velomobiles and other special bikes are also welcome. Bicycles with electrical assistance are not allowed.

Time limits

Solo riders in SUb 610 are qualified for RAAM when finishing within 30 hours (lowered limit since 2018). Teams are not required to qualify for RAAM. The RAAM qualification is good for two years following the year of qualification.

The time limit for the 310 is 16 hours and for the 150 it is 8 hours.
