About a month ago I partook in the Paris-Roubaix Challenge 2015. I biked with my father, the shorter distance of just 70 km, while my brother rode the longest, which is about 140 km. This was my first time riding this long, and my first proper time on a road bike. So I was quite exited!
If you haven’t heard about Paris-Roubaix before, you may think it’s just a normal road bike race, but it’s not. The pro’s ride around 240 km, where 50 km of the road is on old cobble road. Below you can see how it was to ride on one of the sections with cobble stone. Not good for you arms, bike, or butt.
On the 6th of April, or second day of Easter as we call it in Norway, I was joining my first RC Scale competition, called Påskecompoen 2015. It was organized by NORCC, Norwegian RC Crawlers, and the competition was a typical class 2 crawling competition. Meaning that the truck needed to look like a real one (but not down to the smallest details). I had bought myself a used Unimog body, and scored the truck of the day!
