The race “Solleröloppet” and preparation for the Swedish Champs.


I have been at home since I last wrote, first I got a cold and when that past I trained a lot as a preparation for the Swedish Champs next week here in Falun. 


Yesterday was Midsummer in Sweden, something that we celebrate, every year that day there is a race called Solleröloppet, it has been for 74 years now and really is a tradition for a cyclist. Me and Catrine from my team started. On the first hill only 6km into the race, 6 of us got away, after a while one girl dropped and we were 5 until the next hill. There we lost another girl and finally we were only 4 that did a team time trail for about 80km until the last hill. One girl, Camilla, attacked with about 400 meters to the top, I tried to follow but was about 10 meters behind at the top. I was chasing but did not have the power and when I saw the other two getting closer to me I decided that it was better to be 3 chasing. Unfortunately they did not have any power left at all so Camilla could win the race solo. With 1,5 km to go I got good help from Catrine, she attacked with her last energy and the other girl went with her, I could counter attack and go solo to the finish in second position. 


I pulled a muscle in my leg about a week ago and that little injury hurt a lot yesterday so I decided not to start in the race today, I rather rest and hope for it to go away until the champs starts on Wednesday with the time trail.
