BRONZE! Last day of the world championships. Road race on one of the toughest courses ever in para-cycling history. 42K of suffering through the hills of Nottwil, ending with a sprint fight. I pushed the pedal to the metal against swiss homeboy Tobias Fankhauser (currently ranked #1 in the world) and passed him with about 100 meters to the finish line.
4 years of hard training did finally put me on the podium together with the best guys in the world.
Incredible, awesome and surreal!
I’d like to thank everyone who’s helped me get here.
Special thanks to Michael Lindgren for believing in me, letting me ride the world championships. Also special thanks to Bengt Axén and Klara Stålhandske for the first class support in Nottwil during the world championships.
I wouldn’t have been able to do this without you!
