Professional Mountainbiker for Specialized Racing XC

Back to international xc racing

April 27th, 2015

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.

On the right track

Season review 2014

December 8th, 2014

It’s now almost eight months since my first race this year. The location was Cyprus and already I’ve been kickstarting my season here three times before. Every time it’s been great, and I think it’s much owed to the fact, that at this time of year the winter training has build up my shape, combined with the sun and the thrill of being back into racing. This year I wanted the racing on Cyprus to be a part of my training towards the Cape Epic. Even though the race on Cyprus only was a 4 day stage race (max 2,5 hours a day) and the Cape Epic is a grueling 8 days (4-5 hours every day) you still have to get into a rhythm of racing/recovering and being ready to repeat it the following day. I felt strong on Cyprus, even though I didn’t feel like I dug deep. For sure I rode fast, but I didn’t ride myself over the limit. I wanted to safe those extra percentages for later in the season. I’ve always been racing strongly this time of year on Cyprus, and then faded later in the season (before the season had come to an end). This year I wanted a different approach and it seemed to work. After Cyprus we made a little danish talkie-cam. If you’re not danish you won’t understand, but enjoy the pictures from Michal Cerveny

Pedalo vs. swimmer

December 8th, 2014

What is actually the fastest way to cover 300 meters of open water? A pedalo motored by a mountainbikerider (me) or swimming (Lotte Friis)? That was the quest of the battle, when we met on a sunny day nearby Copenhagen. The battle was part of a friday night show being broadcasted this autumn/winter on national television.

Let’s end it the way we started

September 10th, 2014

World Championships did not go the way, I’d hoped. I had the slowest race of my season, which just felt awful from the start to the finish. It feels pretty lame not to be able to “race the race”, but just play a secondary role in a race,  especially since I’ve been racing more at the front of the races all season long. Well, never mind. I’ve had my best season ever, and that motivates me to come back strong again next year. That demands a proper off-season, which is the reason why, I’ve decided to skip my planned participation in the Cape Pioneer in october. Last year that race fitted perfectly into my season, since I was out with an injury at the beginning of september. This year the situation is very different, where I’ve been on the top of my game more or less since march. Read the rest of this entry »
