GGN Challenge

This year’s news and challenge! A combo competition between GGN MTB E-Bike & Enduro.

Now you can challenge yourself further during the Gotland Grand National weekend on Gotland on 27-29 October 2022. We now offer you the GGN Challenge, a combination competition between Thursday’s GGN MTB E-Bike and Friday’s or Saturday’s GGN Enduro competition. In each class, the winner is the one who rides (Thursday) and runs (Friday or Saturday) the most laps in the shortest time within the specified times for each competition. The total times are combined to produce combination placements in the Women’s and Men’s classes.

To participate in the GGN Challenge, you must register for both competitions separately and notify us at info@nordicsportevent.se that you intend to participate in GGN Challenge.

För att delta i Värdens största endurotävling Gotland Grand National krävs det att man har en licens för tävlingen genom Svemo. En licens kan endast tecknas om man är medlem i en Svemo ansluten klubb, så det är det första du behöver göra. Licens fungerar som en försäkring för dig som deltagare, om det skulle hända dig eller någon annan som en deltagare eller funktionär något på tävlingen. Om du kommer från ett annat land krävs ett starttillstånd från ditt lands federation.
