Stockholm an autumn sunday morning. There are people missing out but these trainingraces are awesome. Simple, hard and inspires people to get ready for the real races.
It was fast and fast today. Felt good the first lap but then I ended in a chase of Viktor, Magnus and a guy from Tullinge:

I tried to dope with a fast jersey from SCS Racing Team with teammates Damian (winner) and Erik (3rd) but it didn’t help so much. Think I did a pretty solid race but my cornering felt faster in the beginning and I blew up a bit when it was two laps to go (of 8) and got passed by one more.
All in all 38min racing over threshold with a bike that feels better than I thought. Had great grip in all corners except one where my front wheel slipped a bit, my gearing was awesome and the position felt great. The Roval Control SL wheels with Mavic Reflex rims feels really fast too, will be interesting how my wheels will feel when I get my tires 🙂
As said I wasn’t fastest but wasn’t last either. Ended 18th of 31:
But forgot to count how many Specialized Crux it was in front of me, at least the top 5 😉
Ended with a fika and rode home with Hanna and Magnus. Said goodbye to them at Söder and went to Vinterviken for a cruise along Mälaren:
