a short ride and a long ride

Started the day with eating breakfast with some great friends and then I jumped on my bike. Rode up to Krohnegården and thought of making some laps on the course but they put a lot of dirt blocking some part so just rode around a bit, tried the lap the other way too but was hard. Not bad and not good training but got an hour on the bike in the sun at least. Stats and map: Movescount

Some guys riding a bit longer was Ted King and Tim Johnson with some other riders, 300miles in two days:

When are you starting to race?

It’s august, rain is started to come down here in Bergen again, the americans already started, new teamkits are coming, new teammembers, albums for season 2012-13 is coming up on Facebook. It’s soon time for Cyclocross again after training on road and mtb all summer.

A fall when we see if Sven Nys still dominates, If Marianne Vos wins everything she starts, if Jeremy Powers continues with his Behind the Barriers, if Marco Aurelio Fontana will win another Italian CX Championships and with discs for first time? Questions are many but the most important is which riders will be the stars that will race serious from countries like Sweden. Any races in Norway?

Will you race? Will you just ignore or will you follow every race that is on Sporza and try your best to learn flemish? 1 hour of pain, 1 hour of mud and rain, 1 hour to ruin your carbon fibre wheels, 1 hour to conquer, 1 hour of class, 1 hour of the most impressive racing, 1 hour to became the best. Don’t miss that hour!

If you want the CXseason to start as much as I want you should have a look at this pictures, check out Nine Ball Diaries and follow Cyclocross Magazine

 

 

Get yourself a CX, a pair of tubulars like Record/Dura-Ace with DT Competitionspokes and Ambrosio Crono F20 rims. A pair or two of FMB tires like Grifo Medium and go out riding. It’s not harder than that to start.
