HIGHWHEEL RACE - June 26-28, 2020 - SKÅNE (SOUTH SWEDEN)
Welcome to three days of spectacular racing. For the first time in modern days there will be a highwheel bicycle race in Sweden. This is like nothing else. To see those fantastic riders mastering their giant bikes through high speed corners is definitely a thrilling experience.
The iconic bike has a big front wheel and a very small rear wheel. The pedals are fixed to the front hub and when speeding up the cadence gets extreme. The tyres are solid and the rider feels all the bumps of the road. Brakes are not allowed. Helmet is mandatory.
The riders are coming from all over Europe and also beyond. Those are men and women who fear nothing, not even coming last.
