Race Day!


Today is the big day I’ve been preparing for: Styrkeprøven, the bike race. 5,000 crazy Norwegians are going from either Trondheim (540 km), Lillehammer (190 km) or Eidsvoll (60 km) to Oslo on bicycles. Our train to Lillehammer goes in 2 hours with Morten, Eilef and me on board.

I am not feeling at the top of my game this morning, but I think I can do this. I haven’t cycled this long since I was 17, and certainly haven’t tried to do it in under 8 hours, ever. Also, the weather is bad – it’s been pouring all day yesterday and the forecast for today says more rain for both Lillehammer and Oslo. We’ll probably be riding in the rain, and definitely on wet roads.

Wish me luck. I’m a nervous wreck.
