Five riders remain in the event. Of the five, only one, Sebastian Conrad Håkansson, is currently on the way to breaking the record and has already set a new Norwegian record in 12 hours.
Records like this, when successfully broken, usually aren’t much so – so a 25 minute break can be fatal. Conditions are difficult, with the local temperature several degrees below 0 Celsius at 11 p.m. local time and the track slippery with ice.
