Amateur and pro

AMATEUR: One of my sweet sponsors (The North Face) are gonna start with some kind of monthly updates. I’m doing mine like a small edit. Here are some screen-shots. You think they will like it?

 

PRO: I also saw that Transition.se posted a sweet video from Rhythm. I don’t know what that is, but I liked the video! My good friend Rolf Nylinder from Frontside Fly was skating smooth. I like his style. (Hope it’s ok I have an opinion, even though I don’t know shit about skateboarding). Take a look:

Spandex

Yesterday I was sent out by Pape to get a gpx-file from the Hammarby Hill course. Hammarby Hill is a bike race he wants me to participate in. But after being guided through the course by a pretty creepy gang (we can call them “The Spandex Sect”), I not so sure about my participation. The fact that all the “mtb” races are more like small/dirt road races also sucks. It felt like 70 % of the course was small roads, and that a no-suspension cross bike, or something like that, would be the fastest option. So we’ll see…

But today I’m going biking with Pape and Calle Friberg. He’s one of the fastest in Sweden (former pro who’s won the Swedish Champs a few times), and I’m trying to prepare myself for the humiliation the afternoon will offer me. He might also be a part of this “Spandex Sect”, but I think he’s alright. Ha ha. But seriously – gonna be super cool to bike with him, and I hope he will teach me a move or two (guess he’s gonna propose the “Train more you lazy fck”-move).

Here are those creepy guys:

Inspiring

Haven’t seen Eric Pollard shred the park in a long wile. Don’t know what it was about this, but it made me happy! Inspiring.

And here’s the last part of the mtb instructions from Canyon and Kadens. Watch me do an ollie! Ha ha.

AAAND! Some iPhone shots:

Some good news

Some good things you shouldn’t miss:

1. I did a small interview with Transition magazine yesterday. You can read it HERE.

2. The Junkies On a Budget movie In Space is having their Scandinavian premiere at Debaser Medis on the 21:st of September. A friday. That’s less than a month from now! Make sure to book the date. Doors are open from 19-03, and until 22, the entrance is free. Wihoo!

And this is how happy I can get to find a cold beer at home after some crap biking:

That people-beer sure tasted good...

A couple of videos

Part four or the mtb instruction video from Canyon and Kadens. “Stökig terräng” is my specialty in life. Ha ha.

And then I found this video of Stefan Ågren from Frontside Fly, doing his version of the Ephemera Vulgata. He’s fast goddammit!

Last days has been some biking, and some work. I’m finding new routes in Nackareservatet and Sicklaskiftet all the time, so I’m so stoked on biking. My biking partner in crime, Pape, also wants me to starts on a really serious schedule, so that I can start compete, and get as fast as he is. I don’t know… Biking is good for legs and knees and… pretty much everything. So maybe it’s not a bad idea.

Anyway, have to get back to a Whistler story with a deadline that’s closing in really fast. Here are some phone shots:

Best board ever

I wonder if my friends at Nordica are gonna do a ski model similar to this board. I hope…

Back to biking

It’s been a strange summer. Haven’t been fishing that much. Haven’t been biking that much. What have I done?! Working more I guess. But yesterday I was biking with Pape for the first time in a while. Maybe for the first time this summer. So fun! He knows the area here a lot better, and all the good trails. Going for it tonight again. Good to be back on a full suspension bike too. It’s a less fancy bike, but I like my Nerve XC 8.0 a better than the CF-bike I used last week.

Next episode in the MTB school:

Fishing, berries, Sthlm… And a trailer!

Had a nice weekend after the bike race this friday. Bummed I missed the bet, but it was pretty good anyway, thinking about the amount of training I had before…

Was pretty much just picking berries and fishing (was shooting some fishing with Daniel Rönnbäck. Fun!) the last days. Now I’m back in Stockholm, and have some work to do. Pumped to get back into the biking here too, and get back on my full suspension bike (Canyon Nerve XC 8.0). The CF bike was fast, nice, and perfect for that race. But for the biking here around Hellas, this is better.

Still stoked for big cars, that doesn’t drink gas. I was about to buy a bike rack (don’t know the english word here, sorry) for my VW Passat. But I can easily get two bikes and lots of stuff in it if I convert the back seat, so… I don’t really need it. Ha ha. We’ll see when the mud season starts soon though…

And since the skiing season actually is closing in – here’s another trailer from Junkies On a Budget:

Here are some iPhone shots from the weekend.
