Nordic Tour

Last week was the week of the Nordic tour. It consists of four world cup Races in Lahti, Trondheim and Oslo. All in one week. It was my first world cups this season. Unfortunately I was not in my best shape. Still not completely recovered from a week of illness after the races in Klingenthal. Result-wise it was disappointing, but overall a cool experience.

First time in Lahti, first time Trondheim has had nice weather four consecutive days and awesome weather and a lot of people watching the race in Holmenkollen.

Pre-season camp Lillehammer

The last couple of weeks has been all about getting snow under my feet. First a couple of days at Beitostølen with Kollenhopp, then four days at Sjusjøen with Lyn ski and now four days in Lillehammer with Swiss-Ski. Its always great when you can replace rollerskis with real skis.

The first day in Lillehammer started great. I got some early christmas presents from Uvex.

The first xc-session was really nice. We started out from Nordseter in -13 C, but when the sun came up it got a lot better. The conditions was pretty good until we got to Pellestova. From there we went back with a detour in direction Sjusjøen.

The skijumping hill is not ready yet. Which is unfortunate, but they are producing snow around the clock so hopefully we will get to do some jumping this weekend.
