Albin Elowson wins Novemberkåsan 2018 

Albin Elowson caps off 2018 with a win at the epic Swedish Enduro, Novemberkåsan.

 

Husqvarna Scandinavia’s Albin Elowson took another big win in his home country in 2018 (following his victory at Gotland Grand National) with overall honours at the 2018 Novemberkåsan. With a total time just under seven hours riding, it surely was a tough way to end the 2018 season.

Renowned as one of the world’s toughest enduros because of the sheer length of time on the bike (how does a ride all day and finish at 2:45am grab you?!), Novemberkåsan is a gruelling ride through Swedish bogs and forests and equally something of a winter ritual for the spectators…

KTM Scandinavia's Joakim Ljunggren came home third after leading much of the race with Yamaha Johansson MPE rider Marcus Adielsson taking third place (and also finishing best Junior).
