Several thumb tacks were found on the road during the bicycle race "Styrkeprøven," which goes from Trondheim to Oslo in Norway.
The thumb tacks were found in a hill down towards Skreia center in Toten.
The attempted sabotage obviously could turn out to be highly dangerous for the participants in the race.
- In the downhills bicyclers are cycling in very high speed, and getting a puncture there could be very serious, said police operations manager, Geir Morten Bjerkvold, to NRK.
No one has been injured by the thumb tacks, writes Oppland Arbeiderblad.
"Styrkeprøven" has also been subjected to similar sabotage several years previously.
This year, 5,200 cyclists are participating in the race.
