Oh yes, back in Denmark and back into daily routines for a few days. World Champs is over, and even though my hand luggage on the homebound flight contained a Team Relay silver medal, I have to be honest and say that my World Champs was a bitter sweet feeling.
A historic day for Danish Mountain Bike with a silver medal at the team relay! Moreover this medal kicks off our World Champs in the best possible manner and gives all riders a huge motivational boost for our upcoming individual World Championships races.
Straight from Geneva Airport to you! I’m on my way home to Copenhagen after having spend a week at Alpe d’Huez. Yes, the city of one of the most legendary climbs of the Tour de France, and I’ve ridden it myself many times. This time though, I didn’t do it even once, the reason being that the past week was holiday, a break from the structured training and racing schedule. Instead I’ve spend some time on my Enduro bike, riding downhill trails and shuttling back up by lift. My boyfriend plus friends have a yearly trip to this place because of the “Megavalanche,” the worlds largest mass-start downhill race. This year my boyfriend bought me an entry to the race too, which turned out to be a fun experience.
What racing spring has offered this year so far. From Cyprus to South Africa and Denmark latest Austria. Till now everything was in the “build-up” perspective and but still I’ve been feeling strong and like having a solid foundation for the upcoming season.
