I´m a former professional road cyclist who began with mountain biking as complementary to cross country skiing at young age.
I loved the freedom cycling gave me and to start with it was all about the adventure. Later I grew goals. Big ones!
I achieved some of them and have been close to many.
In Sweden I´m known as “SilverEmma” after my Olympic Silver Medals in Bejing 2008 and Rio de Janeiro 2016.
Personal my biggest achievement has been the journey and the balance I had during my career. The road I have taken has given me so much more than I could have asked for.
After more than 10 years as a professional cyclist I was ready to retire after the 2016 season. In this blog you can follow my transformation from an Olympian to the next chapter.
