What i love about the bike community in Stockholm is that it welcomes everyone. The “join in the fun” mentality is most obvious at the many ad-hock races people have organised. I’ve never raced Dual Slalom, so i didn’t really have any ambitions for the race rather than to get down the hill in one […]
….or how trying something new could have ended up pretty badly. The scariest was the path my little tumble took me down, zig-zagging through trees. The bike got stuck in the first one, i ended up missing the second one and stopping a little right of the third. I had a very sore neck and […]
I’ve grown to enjoy lung busting sprints. Apparently not enough given my ranking, but that’s nothing a winter of turbo trainer session can’t fix. I rode consistently without crashes, kept it maybe a little on the safe side, but with a lot of small mistakes that added up to a decent time deficit. Still had […]
One of the last few days of summer is upon us here in Stockholm, so i figured i’d get a little riding done before the rain comes. Hagakullen has a great rollercoaster track, that even thoug it’s short maximises the potential of the hill.

A summery up-beat edit from one of the trails around Brukets Backe in Järfälla.
Another weekend, another local enduro race. A kind mtb enthusiast on happymtb.org, on his own time scouted his local forest, marked the track and organised a pretty awesome local race. Apparently, one of the perks of paternity leave is having the time to hike the local woods. A total of 6 stages, not too much […]
The Gorillapod coupled with a Gopro and wireless remote is an awesome way to make short edits. The flexibility the Gorillapod offers in camera placement is unparalleled. Now all i need is a cablecam…
….is more fun when captured on film. This is a timelapse of my 58 minute commute shot at 5MP@1fps and put together in Adobe AE and iMovie.
Looking at the different cycling disciplines you wouldn’t say that xc is dangerous, right? I mean, if anything DH, freeride and 4X, maybe road biking…that’s where the big crashes happen, that’s where frames snap and extremities get mangled. No. Apparently you can hit a tree in any cycling discipline. Sandra Salinger, an elite rider, apparently […]
