Hovden bike park preview

This past weekend it was time to revisit Hovden to
check on progress of the bike park I have been consulting for there.
Me, Mårten Kihlkrans and Anton Odbro packed the car full of bikes and
camera gear for a nice road trip to the mountains of Norway.

Tomte DH

Sunday the 13th of December saw a group of 29 riders get together and race the annual Tomte DH (Santa Claus Downhill) at Ale bikepark a bit north of Gothenburg.

Robin stopped by earlier to borrow my Racebike Boxster for the event, his fork has blown up more or less, so he needed a trusty steed, his bike is in a bit of disrepair.
It’ll be interesting to see what he thinks of [...]

Sickleave

Currently nursing a broken hand, so I won’t be at work for a little bit.
Was cruising down the Skogsmys-trail in Gesunda last Sunday (Sep 13th) and somehow became airborne and sideways all in one go.
Took a tree to the chin and right knuckle and that was that. Bumped and bruised here and there [...]

Upstart.

At long last I have put the time in to get a domain registered and this space opened up.
A slight departure from the online community a while back, say 6 or 7 years, is now to an end.
In no way do I intend to update this every day, just every time we have been out [...]
