Some delayed info

Hi there

A little late info from the races in Tong, Great Britain. The reason is that our boat från England to Sweden was cancelled so my minder Calle and I had to stay two more days than planned. Nevertheless now I’m back in Sweden after two good days racing in Tong. I enjoined it very much which makes it much easier to race. Made two good days with good riding but I made some silly mistakes which probably costed me some ranking points. But I wasn’t the only one, talked to Toni Bou and he also thought he had made some silly mistakes. But what about 4 points day one, excellent.

I’ve got some new things to my bike which made it easier to drive. It was my first race with the new things. It took time to get acquainted with these but it got better and better so until next race I’ll hope to manage it to 100 percent.

Now when I’m home I will train for a special competition, the Battle of Vikings 29-30 of July outside Örebro, Sweden. It’s an extremeenduro competition and I have never tried this kind of competition. I once started with motocross so I have some practice. I really look forward to try the Honda Montesa 4RIDE these days.

Maybe we’ll see each other there?

Soon it’s time for Great Britain

Hi

After my eighth place in Belgium I took the opportunity to follow Jack Price, leader in Trial 2, to England and the home of Martin Crosswaite. Martin is still going strong and won Yeadon-Guiseley club championship the first of june.
I will train as much as possible together with my minder Calle Olofsson and also take some time of together with Jack, Calle and hopefully Martin. I don’t know what will happen more then training but together with Jack you’ll never know.

I’m looking forward to this week and of course to the competition in Tong Village, Bradford, Yorkshire this weekend.

Hope to see some of you there.

News from Eddie

Hi
You haven’t heard much from me for some time but here’s a little update.

Andorra was a tricky one. Many difficulties in the sections and on top, a high altitude. Got a good start position but it was difficult to keep it that way because of the other riders. It isn’t always you can keep the start order during the races because of lack of time and the opponents who wants to start before. This was one of the reasons that I didn’t did better.
Training before the next  race in Lourdes was very good until I got hurt. I made a crash and had to use my right leg to support to not get  a bigger injury. This resulted in a bad knee which affected my riding later. So together with my bad knee and a very difficult race with almost three days rain the result was one of my worst competition this year ( so far :-). I wanted to do so much better which resulted in more injuries and more crashes. Maybe I wanted to much this time.

Now it’s time to recreation, load the battery and prepare for the race in Belgium, Comblain au Pont, 10th of July.

Have a wonderful summer, yours Eddie.
