Very little sleep and mountainbiking don’t mix well. But i don’t miss races, for anything, especially races with lift access. So after arriving home from the airport in the middle of the night and sleeping somewhere between 4 and 5 hours, i packed the car and drove down to Flottsbro. I felt comfortable in practice, […]
Once again the mtb comunity in Stockholm delivers. I on the other hand didn’t. In teh begining of summer i was informed that i won a spot in the innaugural Stockholm Velothon, a road race. A road race?? Yes. So after returning from the Megavalanche, i washed my trail bike and put it away and […]
The Megavalanche….because i haven’t done that many potentially stupid things lately. But in all seriousness it was the man and bike against mountain feeling that drew me most to this insane event. I’ve planned doing the Mega for a couple of years now and probably bored a lot of people with questions about the riding […]
With a few weeks to go to Megavalanche it was time to test the bike and my DH skills on trails a little longer than Hammarbybackens 58sec runs. This was also the time i chose to introduce my girlfriend to the world of DH. Well now i know where not to take her next time! […]
Some races just don’t go well. Especially when you lose the timing chip in a crash and have to go hiking half way up the trail to try and find it. Luckily i didn’t finish last. The guy who did lost his chip twice. Life lesson: tighten the timing chip around whichever finger you have […]
In just under a week i’ll be riding the first round of ESS in Flottsbro. It’s also been at least 6 months since i’ve ridden the trails there and my memory is starting to glitch when trying to remember which rocks i can pop off. So what better way to refresh my memory than to […]
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 […]
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.
I don’t attend many of these, so i figured it’d be good to have 29 minutes of (semi-)boring headcam video to relive….
