Swedish Ultrabike 610 2016 Team Effort

The key to success in an ultra bike race in the RAAM style is a well working team. The bike rider is relying on the crew members for support during the race.

All three teams of this years Swedish Ultrabike 610 seem to have worked well together. The crew members backing up the riders with solid performances of their own.

A lesson learned this year is that the sooner you can start bringing your team together the better.

SUb610 2016 Halfway Summary

At the turning point at Selma Spa in Sunne, Värmland, Sweden after 342 kilometers done, Anders Strömnes is in the lead with a time of 11 hours and 11 minutes. He is 1 hour and 12 minutes ahead of Peter Tonér in second place with 12 hours and 23 minutes. Jenny Westerlund in third place reached Sunne with an average speed of 25.2 km/h for 13 hours and 35 minutes. Anders Strömnes has averaged 30.6 km/h and Peter Tonér 27.6 km/h. The strong headwind have slowed the riders down. The wind did not die down until about a quarter to nine o’clock in the evening. By that time they had all covered half the race distance or more.

The longest ride Anders Strömnes had done before this race was 300 km (Vätternrundan), so he has already set a new personal distance record, even though he still has 268 km to go before the finish in this race.

Swedish Ultrabike 610 staying aero

For much of the day the riders of SUb610 have faced a headwind at times a rather strong headwind. Staying in an aero position on their bikes have helped them riding fast anyway.
