Stockholm CX

Was looking through old pictures and found the memory of riding cx in sand in the middle of Stockholm with high profile carbon wheels and A. Dugast tubulars:

Cyclocross is hard and demands skills that I didn’t have that day, disliked that course a lot but the venue was cool and it was people (non cyclists) watching. It was good for the sport.

Tomorrow I will ”race” again, or a trainingrace and I believe there isn’t going to be a single on watching the race that’s not a cyclist. But it’s the same city and I will use red bar tape once again.

Will you race cross this season?

CX Peloton and the big Plouay

A bike can’t talk but it can give signals. My cx started to collect dust and begged to go out today so announced a gravelride after work but without answers.

Tried the Peloton CXloop for the first time with my own Crux. Last time I did it on a cx it was my boss Crux Pro the 25th March. Today the plan was just to have fun, no higher goals and I succeeded. My Crux feels stiff, fast but also so quiet. Took some pictures for you:

A little after this on the gravel out to Erstavik I found my gears limit, 40-11 was a bit too easy with tailwind. 😀 Around the small lap and then back. Went pretty good with not to big effort. And then I met a guy with orange bartape, could only be one so we stopped and met. Magnus was out training too.

Had a chat that ruined my Le Peloton Stravasegment but was nice in the sun 😀 A reason to ride it again in the sun and try to beat some personal records. Maybe next saturday.

Got a personal record of the little lap out in Erstavik today but a lot segments behind the ride I did in March 😉 Then it wasn’t as dusty as today so better grip then.

Map and stats: Strava

and the important thing today which I’ve missed. Womens last world cup of 2015 in Plouay!

Grand Prix de Plouay-Bretagne was today with a great podium. If you like me was out riding when it was UCI got a replay. Watch and enjoy Emma Johansson beat a World Champion:
