After fostering the idea of a small CX circuit for the better part of a year, we looked to the Holma hills and our eyes lit up. With a successful first rally we ramped up our second event and a spectacle was born.
We were happily joined by our neighbors from across the bridge, some twenty Danes came to test Swedish soil. Among them were quite a few fast juniors, all hard as nails.
The crown jewel of the course was the sadistic 30 second run-up feature. From the peak one could see all the way to Denmark, but once there most cyclists looked instead deep into their souls before remounting and bombing back down.
We were also joined by Copenhagen’s heavy hitter, Angus Edmond. When not winning local races, Angus can be seen down in Belgium finishing if he’s lucky (at the elite level). Here he is hunting the dapper Dane in crisp white socks.
