Norwegian cyclists like Alexander Kristoff and Edvald Boasson Hagen make an impression in international cycling. In addition, we have strong women cyclists on Team Hitec Products. The Arctic Heroes of Tomorrow Race is a unique opportunity for young talents to practice in an international competition.

The Arctic Heroes of Tomorrow Race is a team competition, and the best team are going home with 30.000 NOK (3,300 Euro). The total amount of prize money is 60.000 NOK, presented by Statoil and the Heroes of Tomorrow fund. We will also be celebrating individual winners in both classes.

The president of the Norwegian Cycling Federation, Mr. Harald Tiedemann Hansen, is very grateful for the contribution that A.S.O. provide by organizing the Arctic Race of Norway. “We are thrilled about the contribution both Statoil and Arctic Race of Norway do for the development of our heroes of tomorrow”.

We like to call them Heroes of Tomorrow, heroes who inspire us and bring us together, such as high achievers in the fields of sports and culture. However, because our world is facing major challenges, we also need highly skilled professionals to help us progress in the future.
