Swedish National Road Championship 2017

Last weekend was the National Road Race Weekend all over the World. Many great winners like Zdenek Stybar, Chantal Blaak and Rasmus Tiller for example. Watched the Women’s race in Sweden through Youtube just and cheered on Sara Penton from the chair here. Really impressed and happy for her sprint to 1st place and new Champion 🙂

Yesterday we filled a car with supporters and drove down to Burseryd to cheer live. A lot of friends racing and it got really interesting with attacks that held and favorites not making it all the way as planned.

This past weekend I’ve been in Albstadt, Germany and worked for the best: The Swedish National Team.

Felt like a long time ago working for a team and I didn’t do everything perfect but no punctures, no crashes and no technical problems and without missed times it was good. The staff did what we could do and the riders did what they could do. Many new so much learning and setting standards. And a bit special with 2 danish riders in the team making it a SWE-DEN mixed team.

Was 4 stages with:

Criterium Friday evening

Time Trial Saturday morning

Road Race Saturday afternoon

Road Race Sunday morning.

Simone Eg did best of our riders and ended 15th in General Classification.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Thanks for inviting me Isabelle Söderberg and I’ll hope I did okay and to get the opportunity to help The National Team more. I love to see riders learn and get better, and be able to help Women Cycling grow is in my dreams. I hope that it will be as big as Men’s Cycling one day
