Succé Cup 2017

Hey guys! Oskar here, I just got home from a 3 day competition called Succe Cup in Norway. I just wanted to update you guys of how Its been going for me these days. Something new for me this time was that I was riding for the Swedish national team and staying at a hotel with them. That’s the reason to why I’m wearing the national team jersey instead of my dwbtoftshit jersey. The first race was at Moss bmx track. Its a technical and pretty narrow track but I like tracks like that. I got 1/2/2 in my motos and we were 22 guys in my age division so I qualified for semifinals where I got 2nd after a good rider from Moss. In the final I got lane #1 which was an advantage for me. I had a decent first straight and was 4th into the first corner and held that position all the way to the line. Im pretty happy with that as it was many great riders in my age. The next race was at Gressvik which is a really fun track to ride. I got 2nd in all of my motos and I was saving myself a bit for the semi and final. I qualified for the finals with a 3rd spot in the semis. I got a bad start in the final but managed to get from 7th to 3rd in the first corner with very tight racing and one rider crashing right in front of me. I was pretty stoked with a 3rd place. With one more race day coming up I was a bit tired and my body was sore, but managed to get 4th in the main event this time too, unfortunately one rider crashed in front of me at the 3rd straight and I rode right over his bike and unclipped from my pedal, which made me loose my 3rd spot that I had for a moment. It’s been a weekend with a lot of awesomeness and I’m taking some good stuff with me but also some things I need to work on for the upcoming races in Märsta and for the Euro rounds in Sviland. Have a great one! /Oskar
