"COOP Finnmark OF Youth is tailored for cyclists in their teens and early 20s and gives them a unique opportunity to explore the fantastic terrain in Finnmark.
In 2024, we proudly present a long-awaited and great opportunity for young cycling enthusiasts between the ages of 17 and 23. As a trial scheme, we are creating two new classes, 17-19 and 20-23 years old, who will also have the opportunity to cycle 50 km.
The ride follows the same route as the first part of Sparebank 1 Nord-Norge OF150, and it is the perfect opportunity to experience the spectacular nature of Finnmark on two wheels.
Ride start for COOP Finnmark OF Youth starts at the same time as Sparebank 1 Nord-Norge OF150 at 10.00 on Saturday 27 July, but has a joint riders' meeting the day before and is a great and memorable breakfast banquet at Scandic Alta on Sunday at 10.00
For the class 13-14 years, there is a round of around 30 kilometres.
For the classes 15-16 / 17-19 / 20-23 years there are two rounds of a total of 50 kilometres.
Coop Finnmark OF Youth was organized for the first time in 2017 as an immediate success.
Here, everyone, regardless of level, can test themselves and their cycling skills on Finnmark's roughest cycle paths.
Prizes for everyone."

track and Map 2024
Download Map (.pdf file). Maps from 2022 apply to 2023.
It is essential that you know how your GPS works and can navigate according to this during the ride. It is absolutely necessary to practice this before the race. Also, don't wait until the last minute to load and test your GPS against our tracks.
We post the tracks only in GPX format. This format is supported by all GPSs. When you follow the link to the GPX tracks above, select "Go to website" and find the track for your ride. We recommend that you first test Option A. If this does not work, try the next option.
When you download "OFxxx_stages" you get a file containing all the stages for the selected race (OF150, OF300 or OF700). This means that when you use the file on the GPS device, you must activate a new track for each checkpoint.
If you download a file from the "All-files" subfolder, you will get a file for the entire ride. Please note that the file for OF300 and OF700 may contain more points than your GPS can handle. Test that the entire file enters your device.
If you cannot get all the features to work on your device, you can download the features individually from the "One-by-one" folder
A final option if none of the above options work is to convert the gpx file to a FIT file. This can be done here: https://fit-route.pyrites.org.uk/
Some Garmin GPS may have bugs in relation to our files (Garmin 1030, 830 etc.).
Recipe for transferring tracks to Garmin Edge:
- Download the files via our link and save it locally on your PC/MAC.
- Connect your GPS via cable to PC/MAC
- Copy the GPX file into the "New files" folder on your 1030.
- Disconnect your GPS using the "Safely Release and Disconnect" icon.
- Test that all tracks work.
It is also possible to use the free program Basecamp (from Garmin) to transfer the tracks to your device. Here you can also convert the track (GPX file) into a route if you prefer a route to a track.
