The many paths and defects makes the race harsh and often ends with a single racer or a small group arrive isolated at the finish line in Herning.
The race got in a string of year driven as part of UCI’s termin with a fixed spot for the coming spring and have from this been granted the nickname "A spring day at the heath" (En Forårsdag på heden) with the hidden hint to Paris-Roubaix as are called "A spring day in Hell".
