Swedish Ultra bike 610, SUb 610, is a RAAM- Qualifier (RQ). It is done in RAAM-Style which means that a support vehicle, a follow car, with at least two crewmembers with drivers license is required.
This year 2019 is the first time for the SUb 310 and SUb 150. These are not RAAM-qualifiers but maybe your first step for you and your crew to longer distances.
All 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 for the 610, RAAM Qualifier
Solo riders in SUb 610 are qualified for RAAM when finishing within 30 hours (male) or 34 hours (female).
The RAAM qualification is good for two years following the year of qualification.
Teams are not required to qualify for RAAM.
Time limit: 30 hours (male) and 34 hours (female)
Start and finish is at the Best Western Hotel Scheele in Köping. The race is held on open roads with mostly very limited traffic. The route takes you through sparsely populated areas and past beautiful lakes in vast pine forests.
The hills are up to five kilometers long but almost never steep. They add up to nearly 5000 meters of elevation gain.
