We can hardly believe that the year has almost come to an end. It will be memorable for a lot of reasons; America voted a new president, UK opted out of the European Union, Rio hosted the Olympics and Paralympics and the Icelandic national football team made it to the quarter finals at the European Championship (matching the women team's best results). In doing so, Iceland became the smallest ever nation to reach this far in a major tournament.
As interesting as this sounds the highlight of the year for us will always be our first-ever Glacier 360 race. Did you know that never before has a MTB stage race been held in Iceland and never before have as many foreign riders attended a bike race in Iceland!
Next year will be another year of first's for the Glacier 360 crew and riders when we enter the UCI race scene. Also, new riders, volunteers and supporters will arrive from all over the world. What more could one wish for? At the very least we're looking forward to it so bring it on!
On behalf of the Glacier 360 crew I wish you a happy holiday season and a great new adventurous year!
CEO of Glacier 360
