World Cup Podium at this years first big race! I’m thrilled over the moon! The reward for all the hard work throughout the winter had a sweet reward for me. It was absolutely amazing.
It’s been over a week since we crossed the finishline in Lourensford and I’m now getting my mind geared for the World Cup on Sunday. Still, I’ll try and give you a summary of the past two and a half weeks (yes, you read it wright) that was the Absa Cape Epic 2014 as it comes to mind now.
Thomas turned on his soundrecorder and made a small piece on the present situation. Catch up on the situation above (sorry, if you don’t understand Danish you’ll have to just enjoy the pictures .. and laugh at our language)
My first international race of the year is now (literally) dusted and done: The Afxentia Stage Race at Cyprus. Never have I seen a stronger field at this race. Most of the strongest European women participated, which surely made it interesting.
Finally my batteries are once again charged. Since my last blog, a lot has been going on while at the same time I only had limited energy. The dark cold winter in Denmark absolutely drained me. I was kind of caught by surprise by the fact of how little I actually managed to fit into my everyday life and found it hard to lower my expectations on my efficiency. Well, I guess most people deal with situations like that sooner or later.
Winter in Denmark, cold, gray, rainy. At least we have no snow yet. I like it this way. The last couple of days I’ve been riding the latest Specialized news, the Rumor ( Women-specific all-mountainbike) Oooohh, is that a sweet ride!! Spread the Rumor and enjoy this teaser, while more good video stuff is on it’s way
Offseason is on! With that comes alternative activities as well as learning new skills. Mainly taught by Thomas. Last week I learned how to change all inner- and outercables on my winter roadbike myself. I must admit, that it was quite satisfying, when brakes and shifting once again ran smoothly. I’ll post pictures of the bike (known as Arthur) later. Yesterday I learned how to edit videos. Thomas did the shooting with my phone. You see the result above. With very little editing, you can make a good result. The editing program looks like the cockpit of an aircraft and as Thomas said: “If this program is like reaching the top of Mt. Everest, you haven’t even reached the first base camp!”
