The date for inaugural FNLD GRVL is set for June 10, 2023 in Lahti, Finland, when the new world-class gravel event debuts in Northern Europe.  FNLD GRVL is the brainchild of Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas and the team behind SBT GRVL. The event will feature three course distances with a 20,000 Euro pro prize purse, and is expected to attract 1500+ gravel riders from around the world.”

Lahti is less than an hour north of Helsinki by train, bus or car in the heart of Finnish lake country, a region defined by more than 55,000 lakes that dot a forest-covered plateau. At a test event this summer the region’s gravel roads, which weave through and around the lakes, left everyone wanting more (lots more).”

Just like SBT GRVL, FNLD will be a one-day race wrapped in a four-day event. Starting June 8 and rolling through June 11, a full weekend of activities and entertainment for all will include social rides, an expo, a packed schedule of events and will be tied to advocacy efforts including environmental sustainability & climate change.”
