Season-ending-week in Riksgränsen

I went up to Riksgränsen in the middle of May to take part in the Nordic Championships. It´s a competition with long traditions and it is a good way to end the winterseason. We had good luck with the weather this year, it was possible to compete all 3 days, one qualification day and two final days. I made a mistake in my choice of line during the first day. I made it to the finals but I lost too many points in my first run. I´m happy with my runs from the final days but the luck was not on my side this year and I ended second, 0,2 after the winner. But it was a great week, it´s not just about the competition, it´s more about the nice atmosphere. During the competition week I also started to feel better, but it takes energy to have flu for many weeks.

Today I had to go to the dentist for a surgery, I lost my last wisdom teeth and I´m now sitting in front of the computer with some pain but this pain feels actually better than the flu I had earlier that felt like never ending. 

Im looking forward to the summer now, some work, some school and some holiday. I say thank you to my sponsors that helps me to live this kind of life. Thanks to; NITRO, POC(JK-shop), Voilé, Aktia, LokalTapiola, Wuorio AB, Nyman LKV and to Mountain Hardwear.

I wish you all a nice summer! Thanks for this season!
