Two weeks til the first race of the year and it starts in Storvode, Denmark! My nervosity has all ready visited me and it feels kinda nice! It’s going to be fun to see how the danish bmx cruiser scene is and that’s why I’ll give it a try now, hope there will be a lot of riders in that cup! 
I’m almost 5 practices in to my new clipless Time Atac pedals and after a few adjustments of the cleats I’m starting to feel really comfortable with them. This weekend holiday I’m spending in the south of Sweden and today I had some sprints in the dirt, loved it!

Update: due to getting Time Atac Pedals my bike check changed. Here is my bmx cruiser racing bike for 2014, total weight 8740 grams, and yet again I’m stoked to ride this bike this year! Wihaaa

This year me and Björn Berglund will race as a team, FTW bmx and support each other through this season. We co-worked on name and logo and it got a bit of love and a piece of pirate in it. More info will come…
This weekend I went to Stockholm and had a chill vacation with shopping and family stuff. On Sunday I finally got the chance to ride with Björn on his home track in Älvsjö, a really fun and tight track, we had a blast!

This weekend I went to Stockholm and had a chill vacation with shopping and family stuff. On Sunday I finally got the chance to ride with Björn on his home track in Älvsjö, a really fun and tight track, we had a blast!  

This weekend Mr Sunday-racer aka Björn Berglund was here in Gothenburg to have a session at the track in Kungsbacka with me. We started of early hitting the track and it felt incredible, for the first time this year I had a real jumping session and tried stuff that I haven’t done in a while, thank you for the pep Björn! It was really fun to ride with him again even though he has progressed a lot more than me ;)

At the end of the day I asked Björn if I could try to put on his SPD on my bike and have a ride. First time ever with SPD I road a few laps and I felt that this is something I need to have and ride with in the near future. Now it’s time to research this subject!

Last week I was a little bit off my game. It felt like I haven’t been on the bike for weeks and nothing was working for me. I guess that it feels this way sometimes. Cause of this I decided to change my bike settings. Johan at the track told me that I should try to get my bars higher because he thought my manuals looked a bit weird. So I put on a 8mm spacer below the stem and put the bars 5mm forward. Today I will try this out at the track.

7 weeks later I have reached my goal weight, from 76 kg to 68ish, yay! This went a little bit faster than I expected but I’m not 100% satisfied with the result even though my body feels smoother I still need to drop some kilos around the waist! So now I will set my Lifesum app at the goal weight of 65 kg and with a weight loss of 0,3 kg a week instead of 0,5 kg. The weight loss rate will be slower but my plan is to train a little bit harder now.
Thank you Lifesum!

Visited Area 51 an indoor skatepark here in Gothenburg today and had a nice session with a lot of manuals and small transfers. This week I’ve been at the track and at the gym as usual and everything feels smooth, just wishing for more time at the track the next couple of weeks! 

Got my new shoes for season 2014 today and it was a perfect match! This pair of Vans Gravel I bought at Two Wheel Sports, a bmx racing shop here in Gothenburg.
Training wise it’s getting there, I added some new exercise for my back and it felt really good. …braap braap, this weekend I will hit the track!

Last week I ended up being sick so I have had 4 days of resting so this week has been a little slow with some lightweight gymming and a nice run. Because of this slow start I took the opportunity to visit my naprapath and straighten up my back.
I’ve been using the Lifesum app for 4 weeks now and in the image above you can see my progress for this weeks, 4,8 kg down! The pace is going a little bit faster then I expected but that’s good I think, 6 weeks to goal ;)
Next week it’s probably time for some bmx racing and thats awesome!

Throwback thursday! The year was 1998 and I had a Gt dyno slammer frame with Hoffman Love Handles and I was really into street and rails!
Training report: For two weeks now Sweden has been full of snow so I´ve been hitting the gym a lot and had some sweet out door running sessions. Since I started using the Lifesum app to control my food intake I’ve lost 4 kg in 16 days so that is in the right direction!
I really hope the snowing will stop now… I´m race ready :)
