The Arctic Race is the northernmost cycling race ever held and will take place after the Tour de France.  It will be broadcast in 110 countries and thousands of spectators are expected to line the arctic highways, cheering on the competitors.

This video presentation provides a glimpse into this unique race and if you haven’t wanted to visit Norway before, I’m pretty sure you will after watching this🙂

If you want to be a part of the festivities, make sure you’re in the North Cape on August 14, 2014!
