Record number of cyclists for lake Vättern race
A record number of people took part in the Vätternrundan cycle race. Almost 23,000 had applied, but even though only 18,470 completed the race in Motala, this still set a new record.
The race is 300 km long, and takes place round one of central Sweden’s large lakes, Vättern. This is Europe’s sixth largest lake, with an area of 1,940 square kilometres.
