Jenny Rissveds won the Olympic XCO race

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 🙂

UCI Nations Cup Frauen Etappenrennen

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
