Swedish National Road Championship 2017

Last weekend was the National Road Race Weekend all over the World. Many great winners like Zdenek Stybar, Chantal Blaak and Rasmus Tiller for example. Watched the Women’s race in Sweden through Youtube just and cheered on Sara Penton from the chair here. Really impressed and happy for her sprint to 1st place and new Champion 🙂

Yesterday we filled a car with supporters and drove down to Burseryd to cheer live. A lot of friends racing and it got really interesting with attacks that held and favorites not making it all the way as planned.

I hoped for Philip Lindau, my friend Henrik hoped for Kim Magnusson.

Some highlights from the weekend

A lot of racing this weekend. Team Tre Berg and Crescent D.A.R.E have been showing their power in Sweden with the 2 first road races of our season.

International it has been the U23 Ronde van Vlaanderen with a great 3rd place for Truls Engen Korsæth. Video here: TV OOST

It has been the first DH World Cup in Lourdes. Video here: Red Bull

My friend Filip Eidsheim won the two last stages of Tour du Maroc.

It has been Circuit de Ardennes and Energiwacht Tour which both had a Team Time Trail which ruined a bit for many riders it looked like.

And it has been Paris-Roubaix with another tragic end if you ask me. Etixx-Quick Step have to be smarter in the end so people stop laughing at them:
