En Route to Vasaloppet 2018, day 250-261


Been taking it easy since I came home from Norway focusing mainly on technique and safety. Weather is getting colder and we had a few nights with frost making the roads slippery with patches of ice as well as wet and muddy. In other words quite dangerous especially in the dark. For some training sessions […]

Here is a tale of my first days in the snow this season. I took my RollerSafe to service in Norway and from there went on to Lillehammer to visit my niece and to get my first snow-experience this season. Expectations were high as I have been doing a lot of workout on the roller […]

Today I am down with a cold. Good News from Team RollerSafe in Norway though as they received the rollerskis for service. Short message, I know but it is uphill today… Here is some more training options from Brynte and Ramm. We have lots of waterworld facilities in Denmark too. Just think about family dads […]
