Some things are more important than others, some mean more than others.
Jenny Rissveds won women elite
Calle Friberg won men elite.
Both very fast riders and good people but even if they rode from everyone else showing how fast it’s possible to ride, even with 27,5″ wheels they aren’t the ones that matters the most today.

But the best thing today/this weekend is that Alexandra Engen is back:
A person who spreads her joy all over the place and managed to come back after a breakdown. It may be hard to get best in the world but when hitting the wall and have to restart it’s even harder. And still not back, but on a good way. And for this blog it really helps her to have one of the lightest and coolest speced hardtails out there:
