The season is over.
We would like to take some time and reflect on the seasons ups and downs.
We got the opportunity to spend a couple of valuable weeks early in the pre-season over in California, and everything seemed to be running as planned.
20 days in California with Wallner brothers and Marcus Hansson a Mountain Biking video by NiklasWallner
With just a few weeks to spare before the first race of the season Robin had a small incident which resulted in a broken wrist.
(Niklas apparently felt so sorry for Robin that he just a few weeks later broke his scaphoid at the first race.)
The first European cup Robin managed to get our first podium of the season, despite the fact that he was still suposed to be wearing a cast.
The first world cup rounds became a big struggle for the whole team, Robin and Niklas were having a hard time with injuries and Marcus couldn't quite find his rhythm.
In the middle of the season nothing seemed to be clicking for the brothers, however Marcus rode awesome and was one of the highest ranked juniors in the European cup.
Despite struggling we always try to find the time to do a bit of filming and share some of the good times in between races.

World champs was the clear goal of the season for everyone in the team. Coming into the event Robin and Niklas confidence level was at an all time low. After Robin crashing out of every race and Niklas feeling very uncomfortable they where looking to turn things around in Norway.
Marcus however was riding better than ever and came in hot for practice.
Practice was going great for the whole team until Marcus had a big crash and had to sit on the sidelines and watch the race.
And Robin was able to finish 23rd without a front brake.
Even though we didn’t get the results we would like to really thank everybody that came out to watch and support us. It was a very memorable race.
He ended his downhill season with a second place at the European cup finals before going on a 2 week long journey into the world of enduro racing.
He was able to surprise a lot of people by taking a 2nd place at his first ever european cup. A week later, with start number 179 he was able to follow it up with a 17th place at the last stop of the enduro world series in Italy.
We would like to round of this long text by saying THANK YOU to everyone that has made this season possible and memorable, sponsors, friends and family, you know who you are!
