Almost 12 years ago I was in Sydney. Where did all theese years go? A lot has happened during all theese years. I finished my road career, I finished my studies in political science at Åbo Akademi University, and I started a new cycling career. This time focusing on mtb marathons.
I competed seven years on the road. At the moment I have seven years of mountainbiking behind me. I never get bored. I still love training as much as I did 20 years ago. There is not one single day that I have to force myself to go out and do my work out.
The new year is motivating me an inch more. It is an Olympic year. The biggest dream for every athlete is to take part at the Olympics. I have never been in London. My goal is to be there end of July and beginning of August.
Before my dream will come true there is some work to be done and especially some racing. As you know mountainbiking won’t be the discipline I am aiming for. It is road racing.
I am currently on the 85th position in the world ranking. 31st of May is the deadline and on that particular day I have to be among the 100 first athletes.
Springtime for me means participating in road races. I have updated my race calender. So if you click on “calender” you will find it. It is still a preliminary version and the exact schedule will be decided later as the season starts roling
