LIV, the new brand of champions!

Giant is not just having a women line-up of bikes and things, they made a complete brand for it. A brand with ambassadors and riders like Marianne Vos dominating road and CX, Pauline Ferrand Prevot that is the new Vos +mtb and had Jolanda Neff who is the new dominating rider on mtb.

Was launched at Eurobike and here is a video from it:

Polish and Norwegian victories?

A super ride by them and won with 49sec after the 54km pair time trial. Really funny

Meanwhile I heard from a nice commissary on a motorbike that Michel Kwiatkowski won the world championships! On a Specialized with a Evade helmet that I read a test with yesterday. Faster then Giro Air Attack and even faster then the time trial helmet Kask Bambino, that’s how he could win?

French victory at the worlds!

No Emma Johansson on top today. Pauline Ferrand Prevot won in a sprint!
2. Lisa Brennauer – Germany
3. Emma Johansson – Sweden.
Maybe that’s why they had a Swedish flag in Marigny today:

Norway wins u23 men World Championships

Was sitting in the car with two riders on our way to Duo Normand when we heard the super news from Spain. Men World Championships u23 results:
1. Svein Erik Bystrøm – Norway
2. Caleb Ewan – Australia
3. Kristoffer Skjerping – Norway
4. Tiesj Benoot – Belgium
5. Sondre Holst Enger – Norway

Only one who isn’t a pro is our team mate Skjerping in Team Joker. Every time should want to sign him after this year.

Here is a interview with Bystrøm now riding for Katusha uci

riding the Super bike

After a slow day at work I had to ride for a bit. Only ride this week as a I fly against France tomorrow and a super weekend with Team Joker. Last race weekend for 2014. Feels a bit strange in a way.

So today I was out riding my CX and trying the new tires. Impressed by a pair of 33mm tires can feel so comfy and supply riding over roots, rocks and still feels super fast on gravel. Bike was great today and it was 6,82kg when I checked. Looking like this:

Me out trying out some great tracks. good place for a cx here:

colorfull today:

With roadshoes so no running but some technical riding so not the fastest ride. Some sprints too but I got some problem with the engine, not as strong as the bike ;)

Map and stats from today: Movescount

Would love to have someone to ride with, was great training last year on our CXcourse in Bergen.
