World cup in Vårgårda - Sweden


I have had some really good days in Vårgårda with the national team. It was rainy and some dark clouds on the sky on Friday before the team time trail, but just before start it cleared up and we had dry roads to ride on. It was fun to do this race, it is a special feeling with 6 girls riding as fast as possible in one line and it feels like you are flying! My legs felt super that evening and I pushed really hard to do the best for the team. We got a 9th place out of 17 teams and we are really happy with that considering that we had many pro teams behind us and we had only trained together one time and did not really know each other.


Saturday was just to get time to pass, my childhood friend Annika came to visit, it is always so nice to see her, she lives far away from me so maybe see her twice a year.


On Sundays world cup race our goal was to be active and show our team in the race. I felt strong and had good legs so I tried a few times to attack. On my second attack a group of 7 got a small gap but no one else wanted to work. The next time I attacked I got away on my own, that was not the plan but when I saw that the gap grew it was just to carry on, I got over a minute on the bunch and was in that solo break for about 20km. Shortly after the bunch came back to me they went super hard on a hill and I was a little to far back at that moment and the break came about 10 cyclists a head of me, so nothing to do but to finish the race in my group. I got a 35th place. Maybe I could have gotten a better place without that solo break but hey, you also have to try, you never know, one day it will last!


I am back home now and will be home for almost 2 weeks and I am not racing this weekend. A weekend without a race has only happened twice since mid april, so I am really looking forward to be off, but I am not really off, still training hard:-)
