Mountain bike premier

This Sunday was the my premier of this years mountain bike season. Spring has been early and strong this year so we spent an hour and a half at Änggården in bright sun and 16 Celsius. I’m still suffering the remains of a cold so I wasn’t feeling to well, but still it was very nice to get started.

I’m hoping to be able to participate in two races this year, the first is Mörksuggejakten, 70 km of rumored beautiful terrain around Rättvik. The second is to significantly beat last years result on Bockstensturen, the 100 km race outside Varberg. To meet the latter goal, I need to spend more time practicing hill climbing as it’s a fairly hilly track. I think I’m going to try some more light-weight tires this year. Could make a great difference.
