Sweden’s 2nd Gold Medal at the Rio Olympics came from another women, a young one there to learn to be ready for next Olympics. But Jenny Rissveds dropped the favorites and could safely ride to the finish line alone, really nice and well planned race 🙂
Celebrated with cake this evening and she gave her team mate Nino Schurter something to beat tomorrow 😉
Being so young and getting such a big victory may give Jenny high expectations for next year. My expectations for next year is that more watch the awesome races and I can recommend to everyone to travel to a World Cup and give Jenny such support so no matter if she wins or coming 20th she will had an awesome race with such crowd 🙂
Started the day on Djurgården with some great guys going round, round and round. If Le Peloton is a Team Time Trial, Morningspinz is more like a Criterium.
First lap was okey but got dropped on the last straight. Second lap got better but dropped before the last straight. The third and last lap I almost got dropped a bit before but hung on and got Emil’s wheel. The thing with Emil is that he doesn’t turn off but just keep pushing and while Simon, Klas and Mattias dropped his wheel I hung on. Headwind but still it was superhard to sit on wheel. Thought I had to pass him and started to sprint, felt really hard but I got some speed. Until I passed him and got out in the wind, just said boom and while laughing at it it felt like I was standing still (46km/h). I got the sprint and felt like waste.
Then we had coffee and cinnamonroll 😉

A lot at work and then I took my bike to Skepsholmen and watched the Crit, great racing in the middle of Stockholm 🙂
Klas on the picture chasing, impressive to both ride Morningspinz and then Stockholm Cup on the evening after work 🙂
