This year’s Nordsjørittet is now over. For months, professionally-dressed cyclists have been seen on Rogaland’s roads. Saturday’s race has probably left quite a few with tired muscles.

Joint first in the men’s race came Christer Rake and Håvard Nybø on Sparebanken Vest’s team, with a time of 2hrs:51mins:36secs.

The women’s race was won by Lene Byberg, a 26 year-old professional mountain-biker from Stavanger representing Bryne Cycle Club, with a time of 3hrs:22mins:14secs.

If you see anyone in your office “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing” today, put their name(s) in to the results list here to see if they were a participant. If they weren’t, it’s probably best not to ask why they are making those sounds.
