Le Peloton #177

Today I wasn’t first to Urban Deli. Petter came first, then me and then Martin.

When the clock showed 5.59 Peter came so 4 today. Rode together in the beginning with Peter being the strongest on studs, I took a turn on Järnvägspizza (the hole one), no one passed. Until we turned into the ”climb” and Petter attacked with Peter on his wheel, and they rode away from us without studs… Martin was strong up the climb but then he mostly hang on to my wheel. Took the shortcut in Älta and a PR. Martin took a turn on Flatenvägen and then it was just to keep it as fast as possible until the finishline. Thought I would blow up a couple of times today but kept it together and even with being dropped it was a great morning effort 🙂

Breakfast alone at Magnus Johanssons bakery:

Until Peter came who had been waiting a bit after the finish if we where behind. So ended up being just 2 at the breakfast

Good food and really close to work afterwards. And my body felt a bit tired until lunch, just like it should be after a Le Peloton 🙂 And heavy legs on the way home 😉

Le Peloton #104

It all started yesterday after work when Stefan took a look at my fit on my bike. Ended with a new seatpost with 1cm less setback and some millimeter changes in height. Had been thinking of if I was sitting right and nice to have it checked out by a guy with great routine 🙂

So today was a bit of a test, both in position and how my legs felt after my terrible ride yesterday. Was much better 🙂 The not so good thing that maybe made my day a bit easier was that I forgot my phone so late upload to Strava and no pictures by me. Magnus took a couple at the start:

A lot of people even in vacation time. But what a mess, as unsmooth as it can be today and it was really hard for me that wasn’t on top. My last part along Flaten where I tried to pass the hole group as everyone was riding in 1 line instead of 2 like we should I burned my power and when I went in to the right lane I got dropped for real. Tried to keep the pace as high as I could the last part and managed to just loose 40seconds. People sometimes seems to afraid of being dropped when the hole point is to ride together as hard as possible. And as it says on the Peloton kit, Being dropped is not a defeat, it’s an honor.

After we anyway had a great time eating breakfast and filling Magnus Johanssons bakery:
