The first evening we were at the location, there was the team trial. It finished at the camping at the Saltstraumen.
Saltstraumen is a small strait with one of the strongest tidal current in the world. It is located in the municipality of Bodø in Nordland county,Norway. It is located about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) southeast of the town of Bodø. The narrow channel connects the outer Saltfjorden to the large Skjerstadfjorden between the islands of Straumøya and Knaplundsøya. The Saltstraumen Bridge on Norwegian County Road 17 crosses the Saltstraumen.
The last kilometer of the team time trial was challenging with crossing the bridge over the Saltstraumen to the finishline.
The following day, our road trip took us south and we covered some of the individual time trail runs. We positioned ourselves just after one of those typical bridges. Just after the really mountainous part of the trail began.
Road 17 is also a very popular road for bikers going to the North Cape.
