Today i was racing again. CX in the forrest with small crowd and a course that was far away and with a lot of uphill. Theoretically you go the same amount up as down on a CX lap, but when running (read: walking) a long way up once and a bit twice it’s feels like the course is more up than down.
2,94km with a time over 11min is not so fast. Had a great fight with a girl the last 2 laps, I was faster walking and she was faster riding so she won. But always nice to see someone or be chased by someone.
Ended 4th so no podium for me today, Jon Even who was driving the car to the race today (and last saturday) took the 3rd and last podium spot.

Racing at the same time was Women Elite. Katrine Ferrao Hofstad who won in Drammen last sunday took the win today too, in front of her team mate Tiril Hole Mohr. Jeanette Persson 3rd but missed the podium:
I missed the men elite podium as it was water on my phone and I couldn’t take a picture😉 5-6° and raining when they raced. Winner, like in Drammen was Fredrik Haraldseth looking like this:
That’s how fast his Specialized Crux is😉
2nd was Kristoffer Sommer Wormsen and Morten Vaeng 3rd.
Same winners like last sunday but very different courses. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow in Bærum. at Norway’s cyclocrossarena. And if you’re not racing or cheering at a race you can watch the CX World Cup from Valkenburg tomorrow😀
Will get a better phone/camera in 2 weeks and hopefully you will get better pictures to watch here😀
