Day #2 in pictures
8-11 June 2024

Day #2 started from Dombås and ended in Molde. The route went over Dovre and down Drivdalen valley to Oppdal, where we had a break and headed west down Sunndalen past Trollheimen mountain range to lunch at Sunndalsøra. After lunch we rode along the Tingvollfjord, had coffee break at Batnfjordsøra, and continued out on the Atlantic Road over the spectacular Storseisund Bridge ("The Road to Nowhere"). The day's trail ended at Scandic Seilet ("the Sail”) hotel in Molde for dinner and overnight stay. Photos by Peter Sederholm.

Photographer Peter Sederholm spent many hours roadside in drizzle and rain to catch the riders in action. The first three riders are "the gang of three" from Tromsø. Not the luckiest navigators as they got lost a couple of times but always happy!
