Thumbs up Sweden gets it´s first indoor track!

Sweden has waited for more then 100-years but in the end of January the dream will come true. In Falun, about 250 k from Stockholm we´re building a indoor track, 182 meter long, in one of Scanias old factory.

So you other nations, watch out in London 2012 for tough and fast Swedish riders!

We have started a pre-webb sajt with information on www.yrkesakademinarena.se

For more information, please contact Björn Stenberg, bjorn.stenberg@cykelklubben.se or at +46 733 945 004

Bjorn(sorry about the spelling amerikan keyboard ya know)
Could you recommend some good road training areas in Sweden? I have been many times but it seems alot of the country roads are narrow highways with no shoulder. Maybe something near Jonkoping?
thanks

Your track looks fantastic! What is Bandy? Do cyclists also play Bandy as cross training?
