Swedish Championship

Soon time for the time trial... I´m a bit nervouse!!
Sorry for not updating before but haven´t got internet. Spain was quit good for me. Was hard, but I knew it would. I ended 28th in the general, and compared with last year that´s a step in right direction, (ended 44th then).
But now, it´s all focus at the time trial!
If I have internet I will update and tell you how it went..
See you!



Came to Durango this afternoon. Laying in my bed and waiting for the others to come, then dinner.
Have been a long day today. Left home at 6:30 and then the day has been all about waiting, and waiting and some more waiting.
Tomorrow it´s Durango-Durango, which I haven´t done before... We will see how that goes!
Hasta luego!



I´m back from Menorca and we had a lot of success there! We won two of three stages, the general classification, and the team classification. For me I got 7th, 5th and 12th place, and 6th in the general. But we worked really well together and we are very happy about the results that we brought with us.
Now I´m in Switzerland and enjoy life!!
Recovery day today... We will see what the day has to offer :)
Next race will be Durango and Bira. The teams home races. I leave on monday.


Big infection in my teeth

Yesterday I woke up with the worse pain you can imagine, in my front teeth. The once I crashed 2003 when I was racing on skates. My four front teeth were hanging loose outside my mouth, but luckily Johan Granath was there (he is an old skater and also a dentist) and could assist at the accident. He took them and tried to put them back on it´s place. Just to try to make the nerves survive, the faster you get them back the bigger chance is for them to survive.
A lot of visits to the dentist later they thought two had survived. But as you could guess the pain I had wanted to tell me something! I called a dentist here in Båstad and made an appointment. He did an x-ray and saw two dead nerves(!) So I wasn´t that lucky after all.
So, I had to go through the hell once more...
He had to make a hole on the backside and try to clean out the whole tooth from there. Auch!! Since it was two teeth he had to make it twice, auch auch!!
When I got back home I took pain killers and just went to bed. Felt soo bad!!
When I woke up this morning my over lip felt twice the size... Called the dentist again and she told me that it could be a normal reaction and she gave me some antibiotics against the infection. Tried to train today, but my body didn´t respond.

Tomorrow I take off for Bilbao, and on Thursday the whole team goes to Menorca for a 3-days race there. I hope I will feel better then!
The worse thing is that I have to make this cleaning thing with my teeth again when I get back the 15th of June. Just to make sure that the infection is all gone, before they can start for real.
So I´m afraid that this story has just started :S

Anyway I´m happy I found this clinic cause they really seem to take care of their patients! Short of time before I had to go, but they made time for me. That´s what I call service!
Time for bed and try to get better!


2nd Skandis and 1st Kinnekulle

I have done two races after Gracia. First one in Uppsala, a crit. Was 2nd after Sara Mustonen. After the race I followed Jessica, one of my team mates in my Swedish club, to her place. Stayed with her for a week and got good training company, before it was time for Kinnekulle last Sunday. It was a lap on 13km´s with one longer hill at around 2km´s. We did five laps, and on the third lap there were some attacks. When everything stopped I tried again and got away. Didn´t expect to get away but I had no choice then... Just to keep going! Thought they should catch me but they didn´t :) So got the first victory of the year. Fun!
Now I´m staying with Marie Lindberg in Helsingborg. First I thought I should stay at my parents house in Båstad, but we felt it was easier if I stayed here since we are training together this week. I´m getting spoiled with training company :) Tomorrow we have a rest day due! I really need it cause my legs feels terrible.
Next weekend I have two races in Halmstad. One time trial...

So long!



Now I´m sitting in my parents summer house in Båstad on the swedish westcoast. Been here since friday, had to help my mum to fix the other house they have here cause there were some people that should rent it from yesterday.
Have been shining weather here :) Done some more training on my time trial bike, it start to feel good! Otherwise we have just been taking it easy...
I will soon drive my mum to Halmstad. She has to take the bus home to Stockholm cause I need the car when I come back from Gracia Tour to take me home to Kalmar. But I´ll stay here until tuesday, and then the national team comes and pick me up and we all go to Chech Republic together.
See ya!



Came to Sweden yesterday. Had time to go and get my new time trial bike :) It looks really nice, specially with the new wheels that I got for birthday present from Thomas. I haven´t tried it yet due, but I will in a few hours.
Now I also know that I´m selected to do Gracia Tour with the national team, and we are leaving on tuesday. Will be fun!
I forgot to update and tell you that I manage to delete my record over Sattelegg before I left Switzerland :)
My new record is 39.35 and I realized that it´s more then 10km, it´s 10.8km.
Now it´s time for core training before I can get out on my bike.
Take care
