Podiums in Burseryd


After the world cup in Vårgårda I had 11 days at home, felt very nice to be home that long! I had time to see friends, my nieces and nephews and some other relatives. My cousin from Stockholm came to stay with me for 2 weeks, she took an intensive-course to get her drivers license. We are about the same age but have not seen each others for 9 years so it was really nice to get to know each others a bit better!


Last Friday it was time for a trip again, this time just down south in Sweden, I drove to Sexdrega where my team is based and stayed at the manager’s house. Saturday saw a criterium for 27km, we did a lap 12 times and it got hard since it was a small hill on the lap. We were 4-5 girls that got away almost every time at the top but without us agreeing to work the bunch came back. So it was a bunch sprint. Monica Holler (Bigla) and Sara Mustonen (Team hitec) started the sprint and I did not react fast enough so got a bit behind, but ahead of the bunch so had nothing to do but roll over the line as number 3.


In the afternoon it was a birthday party at my manager’s house for a girl, Johanna, so carbo loaded with lemontart and buns! Thanks Johanna for that amazing lemontart!


It started raining when we were racing on Saturday and kept coming down till Sunday. The road race started in rain at 8am (early for being in Sweden, but late for all you guys reading from South AfricaJ). It was a very negative race with some attacks but nothing that lasted. It once again came down to a sprint. Monica started the sprint about 2-300 meters from the line, she got a few meters on me but I could get back and beside and almost passed, they had to check the foto finish to declare her the winner, by a few centimetres. It was very close! I am happy with being so close though, she is one of the best sprinters in the world!


So am happy with two podiums for the weekend! After the race I drove the 6 hours back home. Next on the schedule is Germany. I leave on Thursday and the UCI 2.2 race Albstadt frauen etappenrennen is Friday to Sunday, I am once again racing with the Danish Team high end sport.
