When entry registration to CykelVasan 2014 opened this morning at 09.00 on vasaloppet.se the 12,000 start places for CykelVasan 90 were all taken in only 3 minutes and 21 seconds. For the shorter races there are still places available.
Two years ago all places were taken in 48 hours, last year in 27 minutes and
this year all were taken even faster.
“It is, of course, incredibly satisfying that the interest in CykelVasan is holding fast. For the future we are, naturally, looking into the possibility for more participants with a further day, but this requires that we find solutions which work for all involved. The whole of Vasaloppet is built on cooperation between associations, authorities, landowners, village communities, municipalities and other interested parties; we make haste slowly so as not to risk what we call “Vasaloppets Quality”. Our foremost ambition is, despite everything, not to attract as many entrants as possible but to ensure sure that each and every single participant has a fantastic experience”, says Anders Selling, Vasaloppet’s CEO.
The sixth CykelVasan is run on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th August 2014. The shorter races are on the Friday with starts in Oxberg and the long race is on the Saturday with start in Sälen, where 12,000 MTB cyclists will set off with the classic Vasaloppet finish in Mora in their sights.
The exact number of places in CykelVasan 30 and 45 are, just now, not yet decided.
