Today’s stage kicked off at 07:30 CEST to enable the team to cover the 55km to the first ferry crossing of the ride. The ferry bridges the ride between Brensholmen to Botnhamn and only runs five times each day, so the goal is to try and catch the 12:00 CEST departure.

The day’s ride continued covering 100km in total, through the ongoing beautiful weather. The team is at full strength now, with everyone fit and healthy, and just two more days’ riding to get them into Harstad.
