Volvo Kring FO - English version 20th - 24th july 2016

Volvo Kring Føroyar 2016, or VOLVO Tour de Faroes 2016, is a race for all riders. Age groups, juniors, ladies and gentlemen, and the elite group.

There are stages for all riders, and we have criterium, time trial and road race stages where some are "flat" and some have over 2500 meters to climb.

When open group is going over 100 K, the juniors are riding half of this length.

We hope you will join us in this race and we know this will be a great experience if you do.

On our final day, on Sunday, we will arrange a race for kids. The kids race will be just after the criterium is over. The kids will race on the same course, which will be in the capital of Faroe Islands, Tórshavn.


One of our main goal is that all competitors will have a “time of your life” while racing in our beautiful islands.

There will be motorcycles to guide all riders where to turn etc. There will be cars with tools, wheels, drinks etc behind all leading groups.

We think that this race is the closest you will get to Tour de France, or Giro d’Italia. Or Vuelta Esapina. Not quite, but ...!

Stage winners and over all winners

Everybody would like to win a stage or two. There will be something to race for in all stages, but, as in all other stage races, there will be a price for the overall winner. Not only in Open gorup, but the other groups as well. T.i. ladies, juniors and age groups.

Also there will be a KING OF THE MOUNTAIN competition. The riders which will be KOM in one stage will be honoured, and the overall KOM winner will get price as well.

In the KOM competition all the riders are riding for points, and in all Road Race stages there will be mountains to climb.

On the finishline

On the finish line there will be something for everyone. There will be free coffee on the finish area for the spectators and hopefully the weather will allow us to arrange some kind of a amusements for the kids.

There will be a speaker as well, and he will tell us the latest news from the leading groups, and he will have contact to the leading cars as well. After each stage there will be water and fruits for all the competitors.

Practical information

For some stages you need lights on your bike. These stages go through some tunnels, and therefore it´s also a must to have lights.

Again we say: No light, no start.

Included in the price is the transport to and from all stages.

There are some bike shops in Tórshavn, and if you have forget some tools, you can for example visit Súkkluverkstaðið hjá Gunnari. The owner of this shop is one of the organizers, so ...!

After the race on Sunday, the last race, there will be a party for all competitors and the organizers.
