Long time since last post, had time to test the fastest mtb I’ve ever sat on, a roadbike with suspension and racing a little cyclocross.
Was in the Netherlands with my colleague Jaime on Wednesday and Thursday for a Tech Class att Specialized Europe
The lunch ride we did on Wednesday we rode mtb and started with trying different settings on our dampers and learning to set them up properly. A thing we should do more and not just accept the standard setting that can be anything. Then we did a longer loop with some fast sections. I borrowed a S-Works Epic FSR World Cup 2017 and it’s a real toy. So agile, so fast and just begs to go faster. Made me get a new maximum heart rate 😉
The day after I rode the opposite bike. A roadbike made for comfort, Roubaix Expert 2017. It’s become a lot more agile than the last Roubaix but it’s not a Tarmac and my legs felt a bit sore since the mtbride.
And yes, the suspension under the stem really works on bad roads (and off road)
And we watched the cool bikes in the showroom like the new S-Works Epic HT and Niki Terpstra’s Roubaix:
Also saw what’s up in the S-Racing department, a real candystore place 😉 including special frames, shoes and helmets…
Back home it was back on my Sequoia. Rode a short loop in wet and boring conditions yesterday that I can’t say so much about. But today I changed to Trigger tires and went for Luciacrossen at Flaten:
Many fast guys and girls, including Jonatan who I was riding with in the Netherlands too so ridden mtb, road and cx together this week 😉 Or maybe not so much together as he won big and lapped me on the 3rd of 4th laps. Didn’t have so good legs or routine in the snow/sand:
But we all had fika afterwards 😀
Before heading back home through the forest. A nice day in the snow:
Maybe more blog posts next week 😉 Pictures from the race of me was taking by Ivar Lane.
