All Great stage-races will challenge the rider’s grit and determination. The Saariselka MTB Stages IS such a race. It is true mountain-biking. You will probably hurt and struggle a bit, – perhaps be wet and cold too..

The organizers of Saariselka MTB Stages have created a very special experience for me and my team-mates as participants. This explains why we return every year; the three stages offers a unique mix of trails in a fantastic wilderness setting; narrow single-tracks, forest sections, open Arctic mountain landscape, plus plus! Added to the riding experience, – the hospitality, service and proximity to everything in the Village makes it easy and simple.

See you in 2018!
