where did you find this article? i'm so happy i found out about this guy. now i know whose name i'm gonna write on a big piece of cardboard at the top of bonny doon rd. in santa cruz for the tour of california.. maybe below it put his tattoo in quotes. i hope he does well, i'd like to see his story get publicity.. imagine a cyclist as famous as lance, only instead of with a message about fighting cancer, people would hear his story and get into bike touring!

+1. Good read.
I am sure that hard lifestyle certainly helps him dig deep down during a race.
No HTFU is need for this guy.

For the relatively short amount of time that I've been living up here in the lower mainland of B.C. I've had the opportunity to observe Svein from afar in a number of racing and non-racing situations. He's ALWAYS came across as a down-to-earth, what-you-is-what-you-get type of guy. Can only hope for continued success for guys like him...

EPO and HGH are easier than that guy's approach.
