More power or better aerodynamic? This is my thought about this existential question. Would you rather increase your FTP with 10 % or reduce your aerodynamic drag with 10 %? If you gave this option to triathletes I am certain that most would opt for the increased FTP. But it is the best option? This … Fortsett å lese 10 % more power or 10 % more aero?
«Its all about the engine», some people say. «Aero is everything», is the claim by Specialized. What is correct? The obvious answer is; both play a huge part in bike performance. More correctly, its all about the relationship between power and aerodynamic. At least that is the case for time trails. In triathlon, we got … Fortsett å lese Aero position VS sitting up – what is the time loss?

Aerodynamic has been an extremely fascinating topic since I started with triathlon 10 years ago. My fascination made me use €1200 of my own money to be a few hours on the R.J. Mitchell wind tunnel in Southampton. The results were a true eye-opener.

The bike part of this years Norseman was the most fun bike part I had in a race ever!

We can just admit it; legs, where you can see every muscle fiber firing like pistons under the tanned skin, is much more aesthetically pleasing compared to the pale hairy variants. When Specialized also found an average difference of shaved vs non-shaved legs to be 70 sec/40 km, or just over 5 minutes for 180 … Fortsett å lese The triathlete/cyclists guide to hairless legs

In my ongoing project, I am testing a road bike up against my beloved Boardman TTE Signature. To be able to do that properly I had to get a very good road bike if it would have any chance of competing. Being a Boardman Bikes ambassador I naturally picked a bike from their line-up.

Å være med på en triatlon krever ikke mye utstyr. En badebukse, svømmebriller, sykkel, sykkelhjelm og et par joggesko er det du må ha. De fleste ender naturligvis opp med å ha en del mer enn det, og spørsmålet om sykkel kommer raskt på banen for noen som er bitt av triatlonbasillen. Listen over utstyr … Fortsett å lese Tempo VS Racer – Det store spørsmålet
I try hard to optimize my aerodynamics and have a blog series about it. Read part 1 of my fight against the wind in the link. Challenge Almere was not the best race I have ever done, and far from the potential I know my body can do. Despite that, the swimming was the fastest … Fortsett å lese 180 km in 4:16?

Being back in Ascona was very pleasant. The historic and charming, yet stylish and well-groomed Swiss city, right with the border to Italy, was just as beautiful as I remembered it.

38,8 km/h of average speed on a 10 km back and forth segment is what I performed the other day. Yes, it was a relatively flat segment with 25 meters up and down with neutral wind conditions.

I got a question on my blog were I put my spare tire or tire sealant when I raced Ironman 70.3 St.Pölten last weekend.

Konkurransen startet på verst tenkelig vis. Jeg forsov meg til ikke mindre enn kl. 13, og måtte bittert se på at konkurrentene løp rundt uten meg. Neida, det var bare marerittet jeg hadde rett før vekkerklokka ringte kl. 04:15 og jeg faktisk sto opp 😉 Svømmingen Konkurransen startet vel heller ikke superbra i virkeligheten.
