The Kring Føroyar is a road cycling race held in Faroe Islands. The race consists of a men, women and juniors competition over a prologue and four or five stages, since 2011, the race was changed to 4 stages in three days. The First edition was in 1996 but not an official race so the Tour of Faroes Islands 1997 was the first official edition of the race. The race is normally held in July. In 2012 the race was from 20 July to 22 July.[1] The last day of the race is held in Tórshavn, and the roads are closed for traffic on that day.[2]
