Congrats to Michele Miani and Matti Koster who became the first to finish the 2019 NorthCape 4000, a 4,300km self-supported bike race from Turin, Italy to North Cape, Norway. The pair finished early yesterday morning after just over 300 hours tackling the all-pavement route through Europe. For 2019, there were four mandatory checkpoints located in Strasbourg (France), Bastogne (Belgium), Oslo (Norway), and Lofoten (Norway). The pair’s final time was 12 days, 23 hours, 50 min, and since then there have been a handful of other finishers as well. Congrats to the other finishers of this year’s NorthCape 4000 and good luck to those still riding. Check out the current standings below.
