Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek 2014

August 15th, 2014

This is how my season will be wrapped up! Bridge Cape Pioneer Trek will once again see Ariane Kleinhans and me racing together. I’m looking forward to my second visit at this very well organized event. But for now it’s all about preparing for the last two important xc races at the World Cup final in France and the World Champs in Norway

World Cup Podium in Windham

August 12th, 2014

Specialized Racing - UCI MTB XCO World Cup #6 WIndham /USA/

What a great race!

This world of bike racing is crazy exciting in many ways. Mostly because it’s totally unpredictable what will happen within the next 1,5 hour, when you stand on the start line. Of course you can have a pretty good idea of where you’ll end up, but the amount of factors that has to add up for you to achieve and realize your potential can be endless. On the other hand if it wasn’t for all those factors, bike racing would loose it’s value.

Mt. Sainte Anne is a classic on the world cup circuit. Actually this place has been on the world cup calendar almost every single year, since the birth of the Mountain Bike World Cup. Pretty impressive! This year they once again launched a stellar event, with a race worthy course and an amazing atmosphere. Read the rest of this entry »

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

The humble bulk of clothing from today’s training sessions (now clean again)

Lately Denmark has been wet, very wet! The weather menu has offered showers as starter, main course and dessert daily.
