Horgi Ned (Lønahorgi Down) is an untraditional thriatlon, where we have swapped running with downhill skiing, road biking with downhill biking and swimming with white water kayaking.
Note: Because of the lack of snow conditions this year, we will try to move the skiing part to another mountain. We will give further information to the registered teams, or you can contact the Head of Horgi Ned.
Part 1- Skiing
The first leg of the race starts at Lønahorgi (1400 metres above sea level), one of the highest mountains surrounding Voss. Where downhill skiers descend from Lønahorgi down a marked track to Afdalsstølen. As the competition is held in June, this part of the race depends on the snow conditions in the area.
Part 2 - Biking
After you´ve finished skiing to Afdalsstøen (800 metres above sea level), you have to quickly change your gear and jump on your mountain bike. From here you have to bike a medium technical track to Strandaelva.
Part 3 - Kayaking
At Strandaelva get into your smelly kayaking gear and launch into the river. At good water flows the hardest rapids can be up to grade 4. Thus you have to be an intermediate/expert kayaker with a reliable roll. The race ends with a blast at the bottom of a rapid called Kåre.
This competition is a highlight for many of the athletes during Ekstremsportveko.You may enter the competition in two ways:
1. Individually (you complete all parts of the competition on your own)
2. Team competition (one skier, one biker, one kayaker)
More information about registration will come. If you have any other questions, please contact Martin.
