92. Porvoon Ajot Race instructions
Welcome to Finland's toughest race!
In the race guide below, you will find all the necessary instructions for participating in the competition.
The Porvoo race follows the competition rules of Finnish Cycling Federation and UCI, as well as by the Road Traffic Act.
Competitors must drive along the right lane of the road - not in the oncoming lane. An exception to this rule is the finish line that is closed from other traffic, where the left lane is also used by competitors. It is imperative to comply with this rule and the said legislation. This also applies to service vehicles. If service vehicles have to bypass another vehicle, it must be done where it can be done safely and in accordance with the Road Traffic Act. Service cars that violate competition or road traffic laws are removed from the service car line without any precautions.
Competition Office: Near the start and finish area.
Attention! The competition office is located inside the race route.
Parking: Parking on the Huhtinen school parking lot or nearby area.
