Interview w/Oskar Svendsen from November 2014: http://www.procycling.no/verdensmester-fra-2012-trapper-ned/ (Norw)

The national team coach, Stig Kristiansen, was guest commentator on Eurosport yesterday and talked a little about him: Svendsen has been riding his bike, they are hoping he will come back, there is more to life than cycling and VO2 max.

Kristiansen also said that any rider concidered a climbing talent has a VO2 max of over 90. He mentioned MTB'er Sondre Kristiansen (son of former marathon WR holder Ingrid Kristiansen) and L.P. Nordhaug as having VO2 max of over 90.
