We have some great spot for you to cheer on the riders. On this site, we will show you a few of them. But we hope you will look for your very own favorite spot as well!

Spot 1

At the top of the long ”Hägrunga-backen” is a great spot to catch the bikers in a more eye-friendly speed.

Much more than just a bike race

When you’re done cheering the athletes, there’s a lot of other things to do in Vårgårda. Why not visit ”The Pettersson Brothers” or take a nice cup of fresh coffee in one of our many cafés downton.
