Today is the last day of my holiday, and tomorrow I return to England and Blackburn to start the pre season with the rest of the team. I have trained very well this summer, and in recent weeks I have been training two sessions a day so that I’ll be well prepared for next season. I have trained a lot of versatile training and very little football, so now I’m looking forward to really start playing football again.

Today it was especially exciting for us Norwegians to watch the sprint on today stage of the Tour de France. It was perfect for Edvald Boasson Hagen to walk away with the win, and Wiggins did a great job of pulling him in position. Unfortunately, it did not work this time and Greipel was too strong in the end. Anyway, it is great to see Edvald and the fantastic effort that he puts in.
