I had a goal of 15000km and a dream of 730h. Were never stressed about the distance but saw pretty fast the dreamtime would be impossible. I ride for fun after all.
It all started with Tour de Ötzi, 246km in winterweather and mostly alone. Not the funniest ride but good for mindtraining and to learn eat and drink even when it’s cold.
I have been doing 61 Le Peloton, a lot of Morningspins and Älgö Deluxe. Some Le Snooze. I’ve been cycling in Sweden, Norway, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany and Canada.
I have been riding a lot of Specialized bikes like Roubaix, Tarmac, Venge Vias, Crux, Diverge, Daily, Stumpjumper HT, Epic FSR, Stumpjumper FSR, Fatboy and Sequoia.
I have raced mtb and had a lot of fun going fast.
I have race TT that I never thought I would do and got 5th in men Elite.
I have joined Sumo Cycling and used the Gravity support 😉
I’ve been around new places, discovered new roads with great friends:
I have discovered the Aero Advantage and got a lot faster on Le Peloton:
But I also tried to survive with help of Ice Cream after the longest climb in my life:
In short it’s 4 people that helped me discover new places and roads. Emile has always been there and seen me from fast to slowest, from happy to just tired of his shortcuts, riding next to me on the 2nd picture. And Hagen, a friend I get a lot of inspiration from and is seen with me riding in the middle of nowhere on the 3rd picture. Next is Emil, been to different countries together and been seen riding different bikes in different conditions together, but all in all we just want to look good:
The last guy, Henrik who is always riding. Will never get as fast or ride as far as him but he is my best friend and we can’t come up with a single ride together in Sweden where we haven’t ridden some gravel:
Then there is many more I have ridden with that’s worth mentioning but it takes too much time here. Called a Social Butterfly on Strava and the reason I get so many miles is because I want to ride with all my friends, all the time 😉
Never thought this year would include so much fun and good rides. Never thought I was able to ride as fast as I’ve done. But I always thought that the motivation will continue.
So thanks to you all my friends that keep riding fun! Thanks to Specialized Concept Store Stockholm for helping me with the best bikes in the world! Thanks to Rapha for motivating ambassadors to make super Events! Thanks to Café du Cycliste to providing my favorite clothes with a superb fit no matter how long the rides are! Thanks to Isabelle/SCF for letting me help the best riders in Germany for a weekend. Thanks to Therese who showed me another cycling world!
So now we stop looking back and looking forward to a new year that can be even better 😀
