Which is your favourite Thule product?
Thule Hull-a-Port kayak carrier

What are your goals and ambitions for 2011?
Being on the podium in all multisport races I do.

How do you prepare for a race?
Mentally I start preparing myself long before, while fixing the gear and figuring out the tactics of the race. Physically I make sure to rest and sleep more the week before the race to make sure my body is fully recovered and ready to perform at its best.

What does a typical week look like for you in terms of work and training?
The first half of 2011 I will be home with our son, so no work. During the week I do shorter, faster training sessions and in the weekends I do longer…

Do you travel to train or is your home environment enough for you?
I usually start from home – we have a big lake and forests nearby.

What is your best/worst memory from a race?
My worst memory is when I got sick in a race and couldn’t eat for 24 hours.
Among the best memories is when we finished 2nd in the world championships in Canada.

Do you listen to music whilst training?
No, I usually don’t.

What is your passion, your drive?
I love to compete and the fact that the races take me to many beautiful places.

Do you think about what you eat?
Yes I try to choose organic and fair-trade food as much as possible, but sometimes I also eat fast food.
