With the World Championships behind my back it took me a while before I could move on. Normally it only takes a day but still the race keeps replying in my head and it feels so weird that I could not finish up where I wanted! My body felt strong and good and the team spirit was really on top and for the first time Sweden were standing at the start with 7 girls. I really got a lot of help all the way and it was only on the last straight before the finish line that I had to take a bit too much wind, so when the real sprinting started I was done:( Shit that can happen and now it’s time to move on!
It’s ‘only’ a bike race Martin said and I guess he’s right! Just that we all wanted it so bad and all the supporters that were there for us really deserved a nice result…
Anyway I have two things that IÂ will bring with me after this Championship and that is the awesomeÂ teamspirit that we had and the brilliant work that Madeleine Lindberg (coach)Â is doing for the national team and I have to say that the future really looks bright!
Back in Norway and happy to not touch my bike for some days…
