A one-day race in a closed circuit that will be an essential challenge for Scandinavian cyclists, who will cross different landscapes and spectacular slopes.

Båstad, coastal city located on the Bjäre peninsula in Sweden, will be the departure point and the finish-line for the one-day gran fondo organised by Milestione Series on the 13th of September 2020. Xisco Lliteras, Milestone Series CEO, made the announcement today in the company of representatives from Båstad Tourism & Business, Swedish Association and CK Bure; in a presentation that took place during the Swedish Road Championships currently being held.

The cycling event will travel through Båstad and Hallandsåsen with two spectacular routes: 208 kilometres with 1885 metres of slopes and 142 kilometres with 1058 metres of slopes; an essential challenge for Scandinavian cyclists who will cross different landscapes and spectacular slopes.

“Båstad and the Bjäre peninsula are the perfect location to celebrate a cycling event such as ours, a one-day gran fondo where participants will ride through impressive landscapes within a unique circuit”, in a demanding circuit closed-off to traffic”, affirmed Xisco Lliteras. “At Milestone Series we are happy to announce this new headquarters for the celebration of one of our European events. We have over 10 years’ experience organising the Mallorca 312, one of Europe’s most important cyclosportives, and we hope that Båstad will become a consolidated location, year after year, as the number of participants increases”, concludes Lliteras.

On her part, Annika Borgelin, the representative for Båstad Tourism & Business, assured that: “In Båstad, we consider sport to be an essential element of our development. We host various sporting events that attract attention and earn our city a reputation, throughout the entire year. Båstad is a benchmark in sports tourism, a meeting point for athletes, visitors and sponsors alike. Last April we visited the Mallorca 312 challenge (part of the Milestone Series) and were able to see firsthand the consolidated working model for the Milestone Series in cyclotourism. We’re sure that the implementation of this model in Båstad and Hallandsåsen will be a success and are so proud and happy to have been chosen to host part of the European Milestone Series”.

Known for its involvement in sports tourism, the city Båstad hold various competitions all year round, including the ATP tennis tournament, the WTA Båstad (SkiStar Swedish Open) and the celebration (for the second consecutive year) of the Swedish Road Championships.

The city of Båstad and its surroundings are known for being one of Scandinavia’s best cycling destinations thanks to its excellent hotel infrastructure (establishments perfectly prepared and adapted for cyclists), the beauty of its landscapes and its steep slopes, which are uncommon in Scandinavia. All these factors will come together to make the Milestone Series Bastad become an essential challenge for Scandinavian cyclists.

Milestone Series is a series of premium gran fondos in Europe that have the quality seal of the Mallorca 312, a consolidated event with over 23,000 participants in its ten editions from over 60 different nationalities.
