A 141 kilometres of racing that starts at 17:10 meant a late night editing photos was guaranteed. But with the the long summer nights in Sweden, if the weather was kind it would all be worth it! It doesn’t get much better than Scandinavian Summer evening when it comes to taking photos. Add in beautiful tall trees and gravel sections and it made for a fun evening.

The Scandinavian adventure doesn’t end here though, next stop in Halden for the Ladies Tour of Norway. One of my favourite races of the season!
