Gracia - Orlova, Czech republic


I came back home on Monday night from Czech republic where I did a UCI (2.2) stage race with the Swedish national team. It was a fun trip with some good results for Sweden. We were 6 girls in the national team and another 4 in other teams, so 10 Swedes on the start line and everyone finished the tour. We got a second and two third places through Monica and Sara, well done girls! It was my third year at the same race, so I am starting to recognise the routs now.


After Falu 3-dagars I got a really bad cold, was in bed the whole Monday and we were leaving on Tuesday for Czech so was not sure if I could go. I felt better on Tuesday and got better and better during the long trip and am happy that I went since I felt well on Thursday when the races started. Even though I don’t think that I could perform on top, I am not happy with the results since I did better on this race last year and I think that I have taken a step forward this year…. This is how the stages went:



Stage 1 – 105km


It was an undulating course, some hills but no real mountains, two hill sprints so the legs got to do some hard work. I tried to be active and my legs felt fine, I went on a few attacks and got away in a break for a little while but nothing that lasted. It was a group that got away and stayed away until the finish with 11 girls, no one from the national team. This races finishes with a 1 km steep hill with cobble on the end, it is a really hard hill! Even though it was a bunch at the start of the hill it was chattered at the end. I was number 37 this day out of 112 girls that started.

77 Catrine Josefsson (Swe) Swedish National Team 4.11
85 Marie Lindberg (Swe) Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung 10.46
92 Jessica Kihlbom (Swe) Swedish National Team 12.44


Stage 2 – 125km – Mountainstage


The second stage consisted of four mountains, the first of about 8 km and teared the bunch completely apart. I started off well but lost my little bunch a bit from the top and 4 other girls caught me, among them were Madde from the national team, we were together at the top and I was hoping that we could catch the bunch that I lost, but instead other small bunches caught us from behind and we ended up being a bunch of about 40 girls and no one wanted to work, so it was just transport over the next three mountains to the finish. A bit boring. The finish was on top of a 800 meters really steep hill, so legs had to work hard again at the end. I finished as number 44 today.


Total after two stages:
1. Trixie Worrack (GER) Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung 6.25.19

78. Monica Holler, Bigla Cycling Team 35.02
88. Jessica Kihlbom, Sverige 45.50


Stage 3 – 19km Time trail


This was the stage that I was looking forward to the most since I like time trail and I got to try my new bike for the first timeJ At the same time I was a bit nervous since I hadn’t had time to train on it at all. It went well and I felt that I got good power in the legs and the bike felt fine. I averaged 40,7km/h and got a 23rd place on the stage, I am happy with that.

Stage 4 – 70km


This stage was in the afternoon after the TT and we did laps on a 8,5km course. It was a really high speed from the start, on the third lap 8 girls got away, among them were Monica and Sara from Sweden. The speed went down in the bunch for a little while but soon it was up again, Nurnberg that had the leading jersey did not want the gap to be too big so they worked really hard. Monica managed a second place and Sara a third in the sprint. The bunch finished about one minute later and I was number 29J

Stage 5 – 100 km


Last day was a lap again, around the city of Orlova, the lap was about 16 km and a very nice course with some small hills, narrow roads, wide roads, bends and some tricky parts, so a bit of everything. The race unfolded a bit like yesterday, high speed from the beginning, the Swedish team was very active, we attacked and went on everything that happened. Finally a group of 15 got a way and we had Sara there again. She got another third place. The rest of us came with the bunch a few minutes later. I was 30 on the stage and finished 40 overall.
