Felix rapport från VM

Hello guys,

I wanna start with thank you all for supporting me reaching the biggest goals inside Mountinbike. two week ago we traveld to Val di Sole in Italy to compete in the World Championships. So far we have been having a wonderful season not missing out on any podium so far. Of course we was hoping for an other podium finish.

World Championships means a lot to me, I´ve been in it for 6 years and it´s still the only medal which I missing.

Since then I´ve been really sick and having an infection in my body which had to be cured by penicillin and stronger medicin. I am now on my way back and was back on my bike for the first time again today and that was really special!

We flu out from Sweden early morning Tuesday and arrived in Bologna. Got a rental car and drove just over 3 hours to "the valley of sun" called Val di Sole. I always loved this place, it´s a beautiful track surrounded by the Italian alps and a great race track. The crowed has always been really big and enjoying our sport to the maximum.

Before qualifying on Thursday we had a short practice on Wednesday, the track felt perfect right away and the new changes to the track was working great. Thursdays qualifying was in the dark, just after the sun disappeared behind the high mountains. I felt good and confident in what I was doing. We had almost a perfect run into 1st position qualifying spot, truly amazing with a big advantage into Fridays finals.

It was a long and really warm day on Friday. I was trying to be inside for as long as possible because the sun was hard on you. It was going to be a long day in the hotel room waiting and resting for the evenings finals. As the evening come along we prepared as usual, not thinking to much and just do my thing, because I know how to do it really well but you need to focused and believe in your self. I can tell you, it´s tougher then most of you think it is!!

We started the practice little bit slow, discussing some lines choices and mixing things up. Before the race started the game plan was already set and the plan was to stick with it. We all new that we could make history tonight! Winning the heats and going true every round to the big final.

Starting the big final from the inside is a great advantage and I was thinking "if I do this right we will win this". Luckily enough we did it. We did won the world championships – the biggest and most prestigious race on mountainbikes. We did everything perfect and we didn’t take anything for granted. I am extremely proud over my self and everyone who’s standing behind me and have done what they could because I have done everything I possibly could to make this happened for years!

Still a few weeks after it is still hard to believe what happened and what we achieved at the Worlds Champs. Enjoy the pictures and let it talk for it self!
