SWEDEN CUP rounds 1 & 2 

KINNEKULLE CYCLASSIC (27.04.19)
KINNEKULLE LOPPET (28.04.19)

The first two rounds of the Swedish Cup were hotly contested 
‘Kinnekulle Cyclassic’ saw Ben Hetherington and Sam Volkers making the race early on and into the 15 rider move of day which gave the team a strong tactical position. In the final 30km Erik Bergstrom Frisk, having marked the chase group, jumped across solo to the front group just before the group started to fragment due to attacks. Eight riders went to the line together with Erik taking 5th, followed by Ben Hetherington in 10th and Hannes Bergstrom Frisk 12th.

Sundays ‘Kinnekulleloppet’ was five laps of a circuit with a tough 3km climb each lap with cross wind sections on the more exposed parts of the circuit. The approach to the first ascent of the climb saw Ben position Hannes, who then attacked forcing an early selection clear which then stayed ahead contesting the rest of the race. On the fourth and penultimate ascent of the climb attacks started which saw gaps open between the front three with it staying like that to the finish with Swedish National Champion Lucas Eriksson taking the win, with Hannes Bergstrom Frisk second for Memil Pro Cycling. Emil Andersson rounded out the podium.
