Fat-bike.com has been doing these short films from Interbike in Las Vegas. Good stuff. This one is by far the best and most AWESOME!
In less then one minute Mountain bike icon Gary “the fish” Fisher defines what it´s all about!
And what an awesome suit!
So i finally got together the last edit from our awesome weekend in Björkliden. This time i had the chance to try out Final Cut. Quite a upgrade from crappy imovie that i´ve been using for the other parts.
Any way, here it is.
Since we were riding three full days in Björkliden. This a little edit from our second day. 17 kilometer downhill-ish from Katterjåkk to Rombakbotn in Narvik. Epic cycling in an amazing environment.
In the beginning of the summer a certain Mr Lake Gomez contacted me regarding reporting fat bike adventures form Swedish Lapland. We were just about to leave for our summer vacation so i got some time to think about it. Not that i needed that. Of course i will write for the best source of Fat bike propaganda on the internet. I´ve been following Fat-bike.com for a long time to get the latests news in the world of fat tires. To be a part of them is just such an honor. Lots of love and thanks to Uncle Gomez for having me onboard. Just click on the pic on the left to read my first post and intro. Hope you enjoy it. /Olov

While in Björkliden we recorded a new episode for the podcast on Mountainbikeradio.com with guests Kevin Hodgson from the UK and Fredrik Broman, Aurorasafaricamp/Humanspectra.com
Quite messy and chaotic but we had great fun recording it. Check it HERE!
So we filmed a lot during the weekend in Björkliden. Here is the first part from our trip to Låktatjåkka Mountain station. At 1240 m the highest situated station in Sweden. Hope you like it.

A few weeks ago a journalist at German television contacted me regarding using some clips from my short film Shores.
That felt pretty cool and here is the article on Fat Bikes from www.dw.de
We had quite proper weather the last few days, a bit cloudy. But to wake up on our last day in Björkliden and get kissed by the sun form a clear sky i just amazing.
The riding to day was all about filming. We headed out to the single tracks behind the hotel. The trails here are just amazing.
Out british friend Kevin headed out on an adventure by him self. Me and Lars got some pretty awesome shots. I’ll start editing as soon as possible. We ended the day with a swedish classic. Fried palt on open fire with lingon berrys.
A perfect end to a perfect weekend.
Riding down to Rombaksbotten from Riksgränsen is a trail i’ve been longing to do for years. It’s the old support trail for the railway that runs from the mountains down to the fjords by the atlantic ocean. This is an epic 15 kilometer ride of awesome single track through stunning nature.
We did a lot of filming and photographing. There sure will be more reports from this further on.
Well back home we had an excellent dinner at the hotel. The view from the restaurant in Björkliden is just stunning.
Later on we did an episode on the podcast. Great fun to have Kevin and Fredrik as guests.
Check it out on Mountain bike radio.
The second day in Björkliden served up single track paradise. We headed for the highest situated mountain station in Sweden at 4000 ft above sea level. We did about 3000 ft on nine kilometers. One hell of a climb.
But well worth the effort since we got a fair decent as reward. Låktatjåkka mountain station serve awesome waffles and we had a great re-fuel before the decent.
They also got the highest located bar in Sweden.
The ride down was epic. We did a lot of filming. There will be a edit as soon as we get home.
Now we’re drinking and replannig for tomorrows adventures…
