Some highlights from the weekend

A lot of racing this weekend. Team Tre Berg and Crescent D.A.R.E have been showing their power in Sweden with the 2 first road races of our season.

International it has been the U23 Ronde van Vlaanderen with a great 3rd place for Truls Engen Korsæth. Video here: TV OOST

It has been the first DH World Cup in Lourdes. Video here: Red Bull

My friend Filip Eidsheim won the two last stages of Tour du Maroc.

It has been Circuit de Ardennes and Energiwacht Tour which both had a Team Time Trail which ruined a bit for many riders it looked like.

And it has been Paris-Roubaix with another tragic end if you ask me. Etixx-Quick Step have to be smarter in the end so people stop laughing at them:

Chrono des Nations and CX-Cup Bærum

The biggest first. For the first time in 8 years a continental rider gets on the podium at the time trial Chrono des Nations in France that was finished an hour ago. That rider is Reidar Borgersen, racing for Team Joker 😀

Earlier today I was racing my last race living in Norway and probably last CX race of the season. Bærumskrossen. Great weather but with a lot of sticky mud, looked like this afterwards:

Ended 7th of 10 today.

dangerous downhill in mud:

the climb today, would be cool to have stairs there 😉

Riders going around and round and round and…

Korsæth not liking the climb 😉

Ringrike rider with a SuperX:

this guy was really fast up here, is the Evade making difference even running?

Henrik Alpers with his Black Cannondale SuperX:

Fredrik Haraldseth winning:

French victory at the worlds!

No Emma Johansson on top today. Pauline Ferrand Prevot won in a sprint!
2. Lisa Brennauer – Germany
3. Emma Johansson – Sweden.
Maybe that’s why they had a Swedish flag in Marigny today:
