2002 and 2003 the regional organisations Värmland, Örebro Län and
Västmanland of the Swedish Motorcyclists Organisation prepared a sideprogram to the most
important competitions during the Bikeweek in Karlskoga. These were the Norwegian and
Scandinavian championships in 2003.
In 2003 the sideprogram consisted of the daily Raceparty during evenings
with lifemusic in the party tent, a beauty contest
for motorcycles, touringride for visitors and long time staying guests of the
competitions, little trackriding ("taste the racetrack") and the orientation ride.
The orientation ride lead clockwise around the Kils
mountains and was timed. Only means for orientation was the detailed
Roadbook. A checkpoint was
located behind the historical foundry in Pershyttan. The motorcycle-friendly Mogetorp Inn
(Ervalla) served as second checkpoint and restplace. Every rider was also timed here.
Riders and officials enjoyed the ride. Unfortunately there will be no new orientation ride
