Third day: Gravel, gravel, gravel!
The race deserves its name "Gylne Gutuer" - golden farm roads - with 60.4 km on gravel roads through the rolling countryside south of Hamar, dominated by golden wheat fields.

It was a pretty crazy race, and I honestly can't remember all of it from memory.
There was an early break of three club riders that got over five minutes, and two more riders tried (but never succeeded) to bridge to the front. Returning to Stange for the first crossing of the finish line, the race was more or less reset, with the early break only a little bit (less than a minute) ahead.
From then on, the situation changed all the time, absolute madness. Attacks all the time, groups forming, splitting, and merging continually. In the end, #unox Skjerping and #coloquick Hulgaard attacked with just under 2 km to go when the move initiated by #unox Resell on the last gravel sector had been brought back.

Skjerping and Hulgaard made it to the finish, and the Norwegian let Hulgaard take the lead through the last corner, getting into the perfect position for the sprint himself, and came around the Dane to win.
