7 September: Lillehammer GP, 133.5 km

The Lillehammer GP consists of seven laps of a circuit in and around the city that hosted the 1994 Winter Olympics. On the first lap, the peloton bypasses the steep Kurudgutua climb in the neutral section, with the real start at the top of that climb - but on the following laps, these 600 metres at an average 7.1% (with parts that are twice as steep and on a very narrow street) will really hurt. From the top, it's a gradual descent to the bridge across Lake Mjøsa and a flat section along the western shore of that lake. After 15 km, the riders reach Vingnes from where they cross the Mjøsa again on the long, straight Vingnesbrua well-known from the Tour of Norway.
The second climb of the circuit, the 2.2 km, 5.4% Maihaugen, starts right after the bridge, twisting and turning through the city, partly on steep, narrow streets, and ends around the kilometre mark.

Seven laps of this are certain to create a selection - in 2018, Alexander Kamp won solo ahead of a group of seven riders.

Fus' favourites
Last year's winner Alexander Kamp is not on the startlist, but there are plenty of proven winners with a.o. Tour of Denmark champion Niklas Larsen, Tour de l'Avenir winner Tobias Foss, and Arctic Race stage winner Markus Hoelgaard. The result is harder to predict than in the time trial, but the winner will have to have a punch on the final time up Maihaugen - having stayed with the best on the laps before, of course.
