Merida-Northwave CX-cup is decided in Södra Sandby and Lund on 8-9 January. The final positions in the Cup, the cyclists make up on. In addition, the national team to the CX-VM nailed.
-There are many fine finishes to fight about. It’s really fun to the smoothness of the different classes and scoring system makes it exciting right up until the end, says Anki Eriksson from CX-Sweden.
-It’s only victories in the two Prestige classes that are ready with Karin Aune and Emil Lindgren, but otherwise the positions open in all classes.
For Mathias Karlsson becomes the two major competitions. He will pick out the CX WORLD CUP national team at the end of January.
-The goal is a squad with both junior, U23 and the men’s and women’s seniors. It’s probably the easiest on the women’s side, where there are three ladies who dominated the series, especially towards the end. A question mark is Kajsa Snihs, she holds fast to ski the election or will she to Scania, “says Karlsson.
-I also have a clear picture of Prestige-Messrs. Now is the time to see if their form continues. The great challenge is to find the right cyclist among juniors and U23. Here is the exciting winner last in Kristianstad, Christian bertilsson. There are interesting names as Alexander B, Martin K, Felix H and great promise Emil Linde. From France comes Johan Nystrand home to try to find an international location. The difficulty is not to assemble a team, without taking out the right skater, says Mathias Karlsson.
