WELCOME TO ELITLOPPET 2020!
This event will take place between May 29th and 31th 2020. The winner is decided through two qualifying races, each with eight starters, and a subsequent final on Sunday May 31th.

The two days are generally well-visited and is considered one of Sweden's biggest sports events. A total of over 60,000 people attend the events at Solvalla.
