Innovate or die? What happened with Specialized? Here we got a Cannondale Trigger Carbon 1 29er 2014 with

Lefty Supermax, a Superfat one legged fork.

Fox Dyad two chamber, two setting rear damper.

Sram XX1 groupset with a single chainring without steerer.

Cannondales Hollowgram Si BB30 crankset

Topped with a set of carbon wheels from Bike Ahead Composites.

That’s what I call innovation

Bergens finest singletrack

Good things: Have ridden the best singletrack in Bergen of them I’ve tried. Dry forest descend made all of us smile 🙂 CK Henie showed us citypeople it today. A video of it here showed in a tempo 3min slower than I rode: Fløyen MTB video

Got 6th best time so not so much to brag about but enjoyed it a lot. The group today except Eirik who took the photo:

More good things was that I managed the Kubakke climb (cowclimb in english), 10min 40sec with 186 in average heart rate and good use of my 42t sprocket 🙂

Last good thing was that Karl Johan (they guy in red jacket trying to get some BCK colors on the picture) helped me to get back to Bergen city.

Bad things: My shape at the moment and preparation for this ride. Was expecting a pretty soft ride with some friends. Was riding for 3h17min with an average heart rate at 161/82% with no extra energy and just a sip of water in the middle.

Results was that I hit a wall after like 2h30min, a thick one. Never ridden so slow up Birkelundsbakken before and had to concentrate myself to ride straight and have my eyes open down the last part to Bergen city. Aimed fo Kaffemisjonen which is a café for an espresso and muffin or something but to much people. Got to the only food store in Sandviken open on sundays and got some food. sat on a bench outside before riding the last meters home.

Conclusion: My Liteville rules. There is a small satisfaction get home completely empty and look back on a super training with great people. My helmet feels hard banging in the stem/handlebar. It’s fun to see how hard my body can work hard and develop.
