2016 Arctic Race of Norway race overview

The route of the fourth edition of the Arctic Race of Norway was unveiled in January. The race begins further south than in recent years with the race straddling either side of the Arctic Circle and is set to take place in August. The organisers hope that the route will provide opportunities for both sprinters and puncheurs.

"This 4th edition of the Arctic Race of Norway promises to be balanced and exciting. All types of riders will have good opportunities, with at least two sprint finishes and stage 3 as Queen Stage," race ambassador and winner of the first edition Thor Hushovd said of the route. "I can hardly tell which rider is going to be the race leader at the end of every stage and I am curious to see to what extent can the likes of Alexander Kristoff be fighting for the overall victory"
