MTB Marathon World Championships, Kirchberg, Austria!

I´m now in Kirchberg with the national team for the marathon world champs. We flew down on wednesday and

I´ve tested big parts of the course now and its a brutal one with 4400 meters of climbing over 95 km. During the Bike 4 Peaks I raced the last downhill(Fleckalm trail) on stage 2 and also after the race we went back and did some recce  of the course. Tomorrow I´ll do last climb and downhill again, so it should be enough. It´s a very very selective course, probably the hardest marathon world champs course so far, so its gonna every man for himself against the mountain:-)  Went for a spin with the crazy Mr Platt today. Look out for him, he looks fit:-)

Racing for the national team is me in elite men, Jennie Stenerhag & Emmy Thelberg in women elite. Staff: National Coach Anders Ljungberg & Josefine Ahlström.
