Our site: Bicycling took a chat with Jens Österström, clerk of the course at Lidingöloppet-our site. Which bike is best to compete at, what are the common mistakes people make and how will they develop the space in the future?

Lidingöloppet-our site went for the first time take place in 2013. Even though the race is relatively young, so was last year’s contest, a very popular event. For this year’s contest is carried out on the 4th of may, so we sat down with the leader Jens Österström for a chat about the bells, the best deck type and how they really developed the course.

  1. Last year it became a dramatic our then it was 15 cm of snow left behind when it remained two weeks to start.I’m guessing that you feel more comfortable with this year’s spring?

“We were the least concerned about last year but everything was quite ideal, except that it was blowing quite a lot. Snow will not be a problem this year, but weather-wise you never know-is always best to be prepared for the worst. Strong wind is that which is worst for us as an organizer given signs and tents, all else can one prepare away. In addition to a few lots along the line is the substrate very weather safe.

  1. If we understood it right, there were some problems with Lidingö municipality that had comments on parts of the course, from an environmental perspective.Is the problem solved or believe politicians still cycle is a bad thing for nature and animals?

“The comments we got back from the municipality after we had sent the track alignment led certainly to a lot of changes that, in the future, we hope to be able to work away but I hope and believe that the politicians think the bike is evil then nothing more eco-friendly option available today. We have the utmost respect for all stakeholders what reasons they may have, and it led to an extensive land and miljopaverkansstudie that go over the first three years.

– In principle, this means that within the protected areas we pass so there is basically every single root photographed before and after the race. Last year we had very dry, which showed that there were no traces after the race. But we do not know how it might look if it was going to be really wet. I know after all that in its scope is positive and we want to have a good dialogue with the municipality for improvements and how we can make the course more scenic. It is important that everyone involved understands and knows that a good race benefits the interest in cycling as a whole-which is entirely positive for society as a whole.

  1. Are you going to make some changes this year that will be news to the participants?

– This year it is a change in course comes to the South of Indore where we removed some asphalt which is very nice. So far, so the focus has been on the main distance in order to be able to deliver a great experience to the full, to the next year, however, it will be a half and spacers for children and young people. We do all the time improvements after the feedback we receive from surveys after the races, it may not be outwardly looks like something bigger but then we want to work in the race at a pace that we can be proud of our race it must take time.

  1. What kind of bike do you recommend for the race?And do you have any other special tips when the equipment or choice of tires?

– We recommend a regular mountain bike with dampargaffel and tyres that work well on the hardpackat basis good breakfast. But even a helstel bike works great, as well as heldampad for better comfort. We are still the only race in the country with Bell in the equipment list. We got a lot of comments on this but actually consistently positive heckling. Although many participants chasing grams so, yet most willing to bid on the importance of a Bell. We do this to improve safety and avoid unnecessary crashes.

  1. can you imagine that you are creating a challenge about what that overall, becomes the best runner + rider of lidingöloppet?Thus where you have to set it up in both races and then total the investments?

“It’s an interesting idea that we have been a bit with although it so far remains at the idea stage. This year we are not going to run it when the focus is on Lidingö race on two legs who celebrates 50 years. But it would be a strong wish of our participants, we see the possibility to 2015. Today, there is actually a possibility that even if there is not a single result list so running Lidingö Ultra Marathon on Saturday 50 km running and there was a couple who carried out both races even if there were few.

  1. What are the common mistakes that the participants do?

– The most common mistake is that people underestimate the track in the sense that they see lidingöloppet and thinking that it must be easy. The technically difficult parties are lätträknade, but the race contains the more hills. Not long but many. And often quite steep.

– The course is designed so that you rarely get sleep or take with you the speed from downhill without it in nine cases out of ten will almost immediately an uphill in a sharp turn that gives you the effect that you need to slow down and then feed on to take you up.Pure hardware wise, so it feels like most were quite well prepared when we had remarkably few accidents other than a few scrapes. And it was very clear that even the elite had to fight when the field was sharply drawn just after 10 last year. But we have also noticed that the path must contain a sufficient number of parties where participants can eat, drink, stretch out your back and pass each other without danger.

  1. How would you like to develop the race in the future?We mentioned an overall winner of both race and OUR SITE event.

– It is mainly to make the event more transparent, that is, that there should be something for everyone to participate, regardless of age. As I mentioned before, it will be launched by 2015 a half and child-youth spacers. To combine the course in different ways can also be a variation depending on how we can arrange a course for half so it can become more like stages but there I think we have a way to go. There are also some parties we hope to run in the future that would make the race even more fun and more epic.

Two of the country’s most dedicated cyclists called Mattias Särnholm and Johnnie War power. The girl in the picture States that she is the best in the world and that she won lidingöloppet OUR SITE last year. We are undecided …

Christian Grahn, Petter Alexis and Martin Stenmarck has one thing in common; they think Yngwie Malmsteen beats everything. In second place comes the cycling at Indore.

Matthias Wade was most interested to come first in case of lidingöloppet OUR SITE. Therefore, he chose to beat Emil Lindgren in the HomeStretch.
