Laatste ronde: Fanafjellet

Was supposed to ride with Leif today and started so but after around 15min he punctured his rear tyre 😦 No extra tubular tire so pumped it up and turned around home. Would had been nice with two people on Chinese made Cannondale carbon frames, XX1 chainrings and 11-speed with handmade tires riding together with the best German saddles on the market 😉

Riding alone isn’t as fun, specially not when it’s pretty windy and you want a rider to hide behind sometimes. Rode out to Fana church and then to the wall. When I was at around 30m over the sea and the mountain in front of me is over 200m. 1,9km fight with 34-25 and I was up. Last time I rode up that way was on a light roadbike with Petter and Roger a perfect friday evening. That training was super.

Up on the top it looks like this looking back:

Then down on the other side. Think it’s the best way to ride. The way I rode from north is steeper but with great view and a bit shorter. Then cruising down the longer way is much nicer than ride and ride and ride up it. Rode all the way to the sea:

And then up the second climb of the day. Søvikvegen which is a pretty straight climb from the north, that is better from the south. Tried my brakes on the way down and Avid Shorty Ultimate is really working, specially with Campagnolo levers so you get good grip 🙂 Satisfied with that combo.

Came outside OS, ate a banana and turned back home the big road with a good cycling path. Cruising with 34-12 in the wind for a while until I came to Vallaheiane. The last climb of the day. Took it pretty easy up but got a personal record anyway, slow riding last time 😉

Then back home feeling a bit tired but satisfied with the ride even that I had to ride alone.

A fun thing today was that I climbed up Fanafjellet at 10min0sec which isn’t a super time with 35mm cx tires. The one with the record (riding for Team Joker) is Odd Christian Eiking at 5min1sec. Almost half the time, and then I think he had a heavier bike than me. Impressive. If you want to see where I rode and still not following me on Strava you can find it here: Movescount
