Early Rider Belter 16″ – The best bike for kids money can buy?


I am being very wary of not putting my own ambitions on the shoulder of soon to be 4-year-old Jonas. It is important that he does whatever he wants, and what he thinks I want him to do. To ride a bike, however, is mandatory. He has been riding a Strider ST4 balance bike since … Fortsett å lese Early Rider Belter 16″ – The best bike for kids money can buy?

Aero position VS sitting up – what is the time loss?


«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?

Get a really big fan


Many people dread long and hard turbo sessions on the bike. They just feel so much harder than outside! Why is that? There are different reasons and the monotony of going nowhere is the obvious one. Still, I believe there is another factor that is making a bigger contribution to the bucket of pain. That … Fortsett å lese Get a really big fan

Podscasts for triathletes – the ultimate list


Reading a lot has never been my thing. Listening to books and podcast, however, is a complete addiction of mine. I listen wherever I go and whenever I train, except when I am swimming, which demands too much concentration. These are my favourite podcast for triathletes. Note that my preference is the in-depth talk of one … Fortsett å lese Podscasts for triathletes – the ultimate list

Fuel to be good – not to look good


For most people losing a few kilograms would improve performance. So why not try to lose a bit of weight simultaneously as you train to increase fitness? Training is not super complicated. Nutrition is. I truly believe it is possible to lose body fat, increasing muscle mass and fitness in the same period of time. … Fortsett å lese Fuel to be good – not to look good

Training, recovery and nutrition – Triathletes Holy Trinity


Training, recovery and nutrition. When I hold lectures about triathlon I always point out what increasing performance is all about. It’s those three words. Simple as that. Simple is not the same as easy. What kind of training is optimal is surely not a question which is easy to answer. Nutrition is also highly debatable and … Fortsett å lese Training, recovery and nutrition – Triathletes Holy Trinity

#FasterThanSuperman – becoming the worlds most aerodynamic triathlete


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. Ever since I had looked for an opportunity to get another … Fortsett å lese #FasterThanSuperman – becoming the worlds most aerodynamic triathlete

Norseman 2019 – should you sign up?


Why do you continue to race Norseman? I got this question recently from someone relatively new in triathlon, who was curious about what made Norseman special.    Is it pleasant jumping out of a ferry in 15 degrees cold water? Is it nice to ride across the Hardangervidda plateau in the rain, fog and a bone-freezing strong … Fortsett å lese Norseman 2019 – should you sign up?

Race report Ironman Barcelona 2018


Like mentioned in my previous blog post “Ready for Ironman Barcelona”, I had a steady performance decline the last races, despite being in better shape (FTP, CCS and run speed) and training more and harder than ever.
