You know when you race on home soil and everyone is there cheering for you. Then when riding safe but fast on technical Proloque and still take the win.
You know when you can sprint better than the others so you just pass and celebrate a bit before the line while everyone is chasing you?
You know when racing against the fastest time trialcyclists in the world but you decided to win the World Championships this year and need the great feeling?
You know when you missed the last sprint but knew you got it this time?
You know when you’re the favorite, leading the World Tour, but still go in the breakaway with the GC leader just because you know it’s your day?
Interesting racing, but missing the live stream this years Boels Ladies Tour. UCI haven’t shared today’s video yet so just a picture of the finish. 6th and last stage tomorrow. Annemiek van Vleuten is leading ahead of Anna van der Breggen and that seems pretty set but it’s a long hilly stage tomorrow. Hoping for van Vleuten to take the overall, but can Niewiadoma win tomorrow, find the spring shape again 🙂
Like I wrote about in Norberg there is a lot of forests and lakes in Sweden. And gravel a.k.a sportgrus. Today the women peloton rode it all in the World Tour race in Vårgårda with a lot of attacking and great livestream on Swedish TV and on Eurosport for other countries. More women racing to our TV’s, this is great action 🙂
No victory for Emilia Fahlin or Sweden this year but close. Read about the highlights and watch some more scenic pictures here:
