“You defeated South Africa Malene” - Grandma’s first text after my world cup win. I opened it as I sat at the doping control and I got tears in my eyes. She was so right. I really did.
A quote that has been hunting me, while I have been away for my first block of racing, said;
“It’s impossible - said doubt
it’s dangerous - said fear
It’s not necessary - said sense
Do it anyway - whispered the heart”
So inhale courage - exhale fear.
Coming back to the present and the 2018 World Cup opener.
As we rode around on the track I tried to stay occupied with the normal talk of line choices and so on. Day after day I got more and more familiar with the place and the track. And when race day came close I was ready :-)
I overcame those fears and got it all together. And I even bring the white leader jersey with me home. Going to be a different call-up in Albstadt, as I will roll out there as the first one, but I guess the task doesn’t change? Get from A to B as fast as Malene possible can.
I defeated South Africa
P.S. A huge thanks to everybody involved in this journey and Saturday’s victory.

Well done and welcome back! Fear has no place to hold you down.This season may prove it time and time again.
Be strong, face your fears everyday and you will conquer the world!!!
Congratulations on the victory! You are so courageous! So awesome you over came fear. Sad that you ran into some mean, entitled, immoral people that infringed their will on innocents. You are strong! Such a fan!
Welcome back, my friend! it seems like the field and the people have missed you a lot as your comeback was well-anticipated. One of the greatest lessons I have learned from you is the fact that you need to overcome fear if you want to succeed. You need to get out of your shell and prove to yourself that you can get there through your own effort. It is very important that you believe in yourself because if not, there is a huge chance of you that your fears will take over you and you will not be able to accomplish what you need to do.
