A World Class MTB Racer

A World Class MTB Racer

This is Emmy. I met her at the lakes on Sunday. My first impression was that she must be an elite skier, because she looked super fit. Turns out I was half right. Emmy is a world-class mountain bike racer. She has competed in the two latest UCI MTB Marathon World Championships. Emmy finished in 19th place last year, and 16th the year before. She has won a few races and you can see more results on her Swedish blog. Emmy comes from a village outside Gävle called Valbo and she competes for Härnösand CK. At the moment Emmy is studying dentistry, and because of that she moved to Haninge six months ago, and now resides in an student apartment in Handen. We talked a bit about cycling, and I told Emmy to get hold of a copy of the local bike map so that she can find her way around Haninge come the spring.

I am always a bit envious of super fit people, but she is really great looking. I hope she'll find her way to Haninge, sooner or later...

Kudos to her. Mountain bike racing is very hard and very dangerous!

Hello Emmy ! Nice to meet you !

Young she is. Twenty one I think. The best racers that she competed against in the UCI MTB Marathon World Championships where a decade or so older, around thirty years old, so I am sure she will be a even better racer in a few years time.

Like you Steffe I think that she has many years ahead of her. Even in the snow you do not lose your natural charm with the ladies Steffe.
