The conditions for the 2011 Gotland Grand National were just perfect. About +11C, some fog and just really nice. And for the first time ever my hands didn´t get cold on the transport from the service area down to the start.

One of the coolest things about the start is how everything goes from complete silence to an inferno of roaring motorcycles. Do take a look at the race. They did catch me preparing, and then actually taking the start:-) Me in the orange shirt, white helmet and red glasses.
So by the end of the day, how did we do? Well, my goal was two laps and I did complete them, and also my fastest laptime ever, 39 minutes. Johan Ronnestam debuting at the GGN was in it for three laps and I am so proud of this guy! A big congratulation Johan! He did start riding the mx bike for the first time one week ago... He is a winner.

Looking forward to next year and another edition of the race!
