National Champ 2014

July 21st, 2014

Having the National Champs held only 30 minutes from my home was fantastic. Once again grabbing the National Champs jersey was even more fantastic. I raced as hard as a could, pushing myself, and often thinking “If this was a world cup race, how much would my legs hurt right now??” Well, I guess the answer is pretty clear; a little bit more, than the actual situation.. so then I tried to push it a little more. I’ve been training quite heavily in the lasts weeks leading up to this race, so the feeling of great speed was only really present on the first lap. But, my aim is to race really fast in the remaining races of the season, and that won’t be possible without some solid training

I had the pleasure to meet some of the young girls last year and this year I will meet them again at the upcoming North American World Cups.

I just got interviewed by them and want to share some of the interesting and different Q&A’s with you below:

Just returned from Austria with mixed feelings. Even though the result on paper was good (3rd place), the feeling in the race was everything else but. This race was a great wake up call
