The Nationals has started!

I’ve been cycling today but more from that on Strava. And a big thanks to Tommy at Öster Cykel for the bike I’ve borrowed this weekend 🙂

Then the national time. Normally it’s just the National Championships on road now but Denmark and Germany already rode their XCO Nationals too. Annika Langvad got the champion jersey once again:

In Germany Helen Grobert won women elite:


And the coolest german won men elite, Manuel Fumic!


In Norway they started the road Nationals and today it was men U23. Team Joker with a strong team this year too got the first 3 places 🙂 Odd Christian Eiking won in front of Truls Engen Korsæth and Anders Skaarseth:

Would have loved to see that live 😀

Ready for todays XCO World Cup?

Thought of sharing some videos from the World Cup in Nove Mesto na Morave with you yesterday but Jenny’s win was more important. So today some hours before the start.

Cannondale Factory Racing intro:

Cannondale Factory Racing rides a lap:

And a preview with Specialized Racing:

Who will win today? Langvad and Absalon?

South Bohemia Tour and XCO Worlds

Reidar Borgersen in leaders jersey today (and tomorrow) had a great Team Joker working for him today.


Not a stage win but was in front in the hard end and is still leading with 12sec. Last stage tomorrow and I really looking forward to it 🙂

While it seemed to be great World Championship for some and really bad for some in Hafjell today. Didn’t see it but will see the replay when I come home.

Women elite:
1 Catharine Pendrel – Canada
2 Irina Kalentieva – Russia
3 Lea Davison – USA

Really happy with the podium in Men Elite. I like Absalon and great to see Fontana nailing it. And Fumic 5th


1 Julien Absalom – France
2 Nino Schurter – Switzerland
3 Marco Aurelio Fontana – Italy
