Thank you!


Every part of our life comes to an end. Some things ends, other things starts. I’ve been writing this blog for many many years and I honestly miss the weightweenie part more than you can imagine. Instead of buying to many light parts to blog about most parts I buy feel necessary nowadays as I ride more and internetshop less. Not as geeky blog as I wish for and it feels like there is too much on the internet to have time to catch up.

I know you readers got less and less and so has my motivation.

So I’m moving on with the riding and sharing my life on Instagram. And news through Facebook and Twitter. And trying to be like a role model I got and live more irl.

Last post and the end of my blog.

Thank you to you all my readers!

Time to look back and see the ups and downs of this year. What to learn from the sad and what to remember as good.

The big things seems to start with Racemile Showdown in the end of January, this year not so cold but really icy as seen on the picture above. My Sequoia came to it’s perfect use with 42mm studded tires:)


A weekend with friends and a big Thank You to Hagen for arranging 😀


Then came a spring with a not so fast Sequoia which didn’t seem to give me any extra leg muscles. Instead it became a dropping time on Le Peloton with a too low handlebar and I felt slow…


It may have seen like many people on the picture here but my thoughts has been Le Peloton is loosing people to other things. Like Morningspins:


Without finding the speed on my roadbike I found it on my superlight Epic ht mtb and cut my PR at Långa Billingeracet with around 20min 🙂


The fastest bike I’ve ever had and super agile. Unfortunately it didn’t have an rear damper and I seem to have been older making my back hurt after like 40-50km Marathon racing. Felt fast uphill, it felt really good downhill singletracks but on on flat singletrack with roots and rocks it felt like I was standing still.

So I ate ice-cream instead:


And I tried to ride with fast people, SUMO style:


Manage to do a Randonneur with these great people in awesome pace 🙂


And according to Strava the one I was riding most with in 2017 is Emil who’s super fast:


A thing I didn’t think was I was going to do Vätternrundan once again. Riding around a boring lake on boring roads with stressed people. But Stefan convinced me to apply and what a team. Known and unknown people having fun going fast for almost 300km 😀


I never thought I would do it at 7h27min, and remembering it as fun. Riding with Henrik, getting to know Glenn, seeing how simple everything seems for Calle and Fredrik. Everything together with Jukka and Karl keeping things together. And the biggest effort by Erik for making it all possible and making us have a calm knowing everything is in control and skipping the stress so many people got for Vätternrundan. Skoda Cycling Team is not just a team effort, it’s like being a pro with everyone trusting you 🙂


The summer passed and the next big event came.

Race Across Skåne. Another friend like Hagen arranging a top notch event. Waking up in Malmö that day not feeling on top was a bit sad as I really longed for being in top shape that day. Got dropped sitting totally wrong in the crosswind pretty early, feeling like on a spring Le Peloton but at a 190km race instead of 40km training. Ending up with meeting my good friend Emil who saved the day. Cruised on this wheel feeling shit the rest of the route:


We had a crash in a group and it started raining. Everything felt just bad so at the last stop I got an ice-cream…


It’s always fun with an ice-cream, always 😀

The day after I felt worse, driving to my mum instead of doing an recovery spin with the rest. Got fever but manage to get good until our adventure trip. Me, Emil and Emile went to Norberg with gravelbikes and target to explore some new roads in the middle of nowhere. I felt slow after my illness but I love new roads and places. I found a straight fast road on a sunny day outside Norberg, or the road maybe found me…


The end of the summer after a stupid crash. But the start of knowing I got so many kind friends always there to help out. So thankful for everyone making my recovery easier. I missed Rapha 12 Hills and many many kilometers of sunny cycling but it could have been worse.


I got back on a bike outside 😀 Have been feeling slow all autumn but I’m riding and no matter of speed cycling is a beautiful sport. And with help from Specialized Nordic and Specialized Concept Store Stockholm I’m more motivated than ever. Got the dreambike which I’m hoping to ride everywhere, all the time and with a smile (when the salt is gone from the roads)


Travelled to Girona for some sun and met some cool people:


So 15437km later the year ends and I’m still not tired of cycling. The best way to explore our beautiful world and meet nice different people from all over the world.

For 2018 I want to go to new places, new countries. Want to enjoy every moment no matter if I ride in sunny Italy or just commuting to work a rainy grey day. Want to be a good friend. Want to watch some proper roadracing and maybe even meet Annemiek van Vleuten. Want to be an ambassador of our beautiful stylish sport without judging people. Because style is important 😀 IMG_20171229_083905_413

So welcome 2018 and good luck having more fun! Let’s enjoy every moment 🙂

What a beautiful morning


A cold morning in the suburbs of Stockholm seeing the queues grow and the sun rise. There is something special with extending the commute and get some air and time in the saddle before start working, a little time to think, to breath and just to spin by the carpeople. Ending up on a quiet dry hardpack gravelroad thinking of animals instead of cars and starting to think of that you can turn your lights off as it’s so light


Riding the last part on roads I used to commute on remembering old times (last month) and got passed by a stressed commuter…

Map and stats: Strava

Last ride this year with roadshoes, now was a day too late to switch to mtbpedals and shoes as the roadshoes sucks when walking in mud and snow 😉 Welcome mtbshoes:


and new wheels, I’m spoiled and can’t help liking good parts 😉 The rear wheel I’m not sure about but Roval SLX 24 disc is a must have, best allround wheels to have.


Funny I keep on thinking I want to change those boring mechanical discbrakes to good hydraulic ones but the Sora gearing works too good to be changed :p


SUMO goes gravel

It should rain this morning and I was tired since yesterday, For a short while I thought of skipping the ride today and sleep instead. But then I thought again and thought I could drop if it gets too hard.

So tired when I left home I noticed I forgot my bottle after 10min, stopped at work and picked up a bottle I had there on the way. A noticeable difference riding with studded tires so I was a bit tight on time and as Jesper got a puncture when he and Michael was riding to Urban Deli I continued to Ektorp where everyone from different places would meet up.

Already leaving Ektorp I got dropped without being able to get up, ended up in 2 groups. After Skurubron and around Boo I said to Jesper who was the only one left that I was riding alone instead so he passed and got up to the others.


Michael waited for me and we rode together for a short bit and thought the others would wait at some point. They took a different route so after a couple of messages, a phonecall and some time we all got back together.


They convinced me not to ride alone and instead join them around Velamsund. I got convinced and thought I would go back home from Gustavsberg instead of riding out on Ingarö afterwards. Around Velamsund was really soft gravel and I thought everyone had a hard time, specially for us with ”thin” studded tires.

When coming out to the asphalt at Lagnövägen Claes proposed to go on a new route, a bit of adventuring. Everyone agreed that it was a good idea 😉 Until we turned off the asphalt and onto the grass, wet soaking soft grass that turned in to mud. Daniel dropped his wheel and bent his derailleur hanger making him and Peter turn. While the rest of us tried to get some kind of grip and trying to stop spinning and getting forward. Forward into the woods where grass turned into dirt and was just mud…

Ending the adventure part we got out to see Emil’s secret training at full speed.


We shook our heads and kept on moving


Gravel again and a bit of asphalt to Gustavsberg. Me and Oskar did the fast thing and turned right towards home as fast as the others couldn’t complain :p Took one detour but except that straight back. Alone from Ektorp where Oskar turned. Stopped at work washing my bike a bit until I rounded Södermalm with Linn and Maria that had been riding mtb. A nice city detour for me trying to get 3h without doing loops.

I didn’t get 3h but almost 😉 And after all happy to get out, even when my friends are fast they are friendly and it’s always nice to meet up with people and ride ”together”. Even when everyone seemed to have taken different routes today, best Strava Flyby :p

Instead of being in Stockholm when the first snow came I managed to get what can be the last warm (Swedish thinking) week in Girona. Met Karim who went back to Stockholm the day after I arrived and my nice friend Therese. Got to talk to cool people like Aviv, Connie and Kati. And I got some beautiful rides in a landscape where you can get everything. Did ride some nice climbs but no steep ones, just flowy where I could get a good rhythm and which ended in a tricky tight descend. Not sure if the descends where hard or if just was a coward and slow… Anyway, riding awesome roads in a nice landscape when it’s how enough to take of arm- and kneewarmers after a while feels like a luxury. I think I will be back, missed a couple of great routes I heard. Here is some random pictures from my trip:

And my Diverge did work awesome for this, a good friend I want to do many trips with 🙂


Ready 4 Girona

What I had in mind for August got changed, now I’m going to Girona instead. 5 days of vacation hopefully with great people, awesome roads and good coffee.

Fixed my bike yesterday with new 28mm Specialized Turbo Cotton tires and a new white Fizik 2mm superlight bar tape (the best) so now it’s beautiful and ready to see the sun.


If you are in Girona, Spain and want to ride with me Monday-Thursday, write a comment. So far no plans than enjoying. On my dreambike, let’s see how good it is on real roads in some heat 🙂


FMB Sprint2 XL graveltubulars

When I first started to think of the build for my S-Works Diverge I thought of a pair of Roval CLX disc tubulars with 36mm A.Dugast Pipisquallo tubulars on. Later I got a set of clinchers and the plan got changed. Got a set of cheap tubulars from China and a set of Challenge Chicane from a friend.

But yesterday Bikerumor got my mind going again showing this:


a 3T Exploro with 40mm FMB tubulars. Everyone who talked with me about tubulars knows how much I love FMB. Both their roadtires and their cyclocross tires is absolutely the best I’ve tried.

They have made their regular 33mm diamond thread in 40mm, protected them with latex and made the tires of my dreams:


I have to get a pair when they become available and I think you should too if you want to go fast on gravel. Like you can with an Specialized S-Works Diverge or 3T Exploro 😀
