2nd place in Takapuna

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

A friday evening in Takapuna. A tight course, a short race and a big beer drinking crowd – could you ask for a better setting? Even if shorter means faster, more intense, lots of pain and no windows for mistakes its a lot of fun. And it’s great training for the bigger races to come. […]

Podium in Kinloch

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

It was the first race back in ages. After last years roller coaster of a year with injury upon injury it was such a nice feeling to be out on the racecourse again. I had spent some time with coach Darren at his home base in San Diego before coming out here. Most of it was […]

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

I’m very proud to announce my place in the Island House team 2015. A newly designed sponsorship backed and created by Mark Holowesko. I met Mark back in 2012, just after that race in Auckland… The race that was the last of my massive 2012 and gave me the world title to take back home. […]

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

It’s been 5 great years starting 2010. Now it’s heading into 2015 and I’m looking forward to yet another year racing under the #iamspecialized banner. I couldn’t resist but to have a look back at the years that have been… This is what it looks like: My first year 2010 included a Sprint World Champion […]

Merry Christmas

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

For the first time in many years I got to celebrate Christmas in style.  In true Swedish fashion. Dressed in white and accompanied by fireplaces and great food.  It’s been a month of ever changing conditions and realities. Traveling at it’s best really. Kenya, Bahrain, the Canaries – and now Rämma in Älvdalen, Dalarna, Sweden. […]

Challenge Bahrain 2014

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

For the first time in months its race time.  After 3,5 weeks of solid training in Kenya me and Jodie are off the turbos and back in the race suits. Challenge Bahrain is one amazing event, even if we still are a few days off the actual race the hospitality so far has proved to be something […]

Last sessions in Kenya

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

So training is now almost finished up here. As you see above the synchronized bombing is perfected and me and Jodes are now looking forward to some lower altitude and well needed rest. It’s been a very solid block up here. I arrived in a rehab phase just having left my stress respons behind me. […]

Half way mark at camp kenya

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014

The first two weeks are behind us and the Kenyan air is starting to feel easier to negotiate. Many have been asking about the fair amount of trainer sessions we have ticked off. And fair enough, which sane human being would spend the better of a three week camp in Kenya riding a trainer? Probably […]

Back for more in Kenya

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

It’s been a while now. I’ve been here twice before, 2009 and 2010 both times with Darren and parts of the D-squad. Most memorable from the first trip was my 24th birthday which I celebrated in the Eldoret hospital. The 2nd year around I had torn my calf the day before flying out and spent […]
