Triathlon performance on a wooden bike

This amazing lady, Louise Steen Lilliekvist, took her GUS racer for a spin at Herlev Triathlon Olympic route this weekend. Despite fresh winds and a hilly terrain, she broke her own personal speed record in cycling. Best of all - she had a fantastic time doing it! In her own words: "The bike just goes off on its own!"

 

There was no lack of enthusiastic comments about the wood and carbon bike either, as it received a good amount of attention during the day.

Well done, Louise! Looking forward to the next record breaking ride with you.

Bicycle racing is often about statistics and numbers, and all though the Transpyr is not really as much of a competition as it is a sporting adventure; it is a challenge. As in life, the race can be long and hard and it is often against ones self. Sergio and the rest of the Transpyr peloton struggled with heat and steep climbs and no matter what the numbers are, completing this first stage was a great triumph in and of itself.
