About me

I have found my passion and way of life within cycling and am a dedicated and ambitious athlete. I have completed a bachelor degree in Sports Science at Høgskolen i Lillehammer and have an extensive knowledge and experience within power based / scientific training both as an athlete and a coach. I also provide coaching services – read more about it HERE. In addition I have a great interest and knowledge within nutrition, bike gear and equipment and mechanics. At the moment (2016) I’m working full time as a sports officer in th eNorwegian Army besides my cycling. My focus as a cyclist lies within MTB marathon and stage racing, both national and abroad and my goal and dream is one day to ride the World Championship for Norway.

Background

Started as a speed skater and XC skier as  a kid and have tried all kinds of endurance sports during my childhood and youth. That’s one of the reasons I’ve maintained my interest and motivation for sports during the years. Since year 2000 I was using my bike increasingly, and in 2007 I decided this was a sport I was good at and wanted to find my limits as an athlete. The quest is still on.. 🙂

2008 was my first season in the Norwegian marathon MTB cup and the main focus was to gather experience through as many races as possible. I quickly realized my strength was in the terrain and that’s naturally also where I found it most enjoyable. In ’08 my main focus was marathon, but I tested out some shorter XC racing late in the season. In 2009 it was more like 50/50. My goals were mostly accomplished and I had good progress.

The 2010 season was my first with a coach. That lead to good education, more payoff from training and even more progress. The results got better and better and my performance improved throughout the season and at the end I got my to date best achievements with a 7th place in Birken and feeling strong at the National Championship road race in Trondheim.

The following years I focused more on XC, since that was the Olympic discipline, but realized after some bad years that my physiology was more suited to longer races: marathons and stage races. I’m just not explosive enough. So now the focus is back to where it all began – endurance racing and having fun on the bike!
