So, i've been on here for a while so i thought, that it finally was time to introduce myself and my lovely bikes!

I'm a men's junior-rider from Denmark and in the season 2013 i'll be racing for a team called Team Middelfart Junior ("Middelfart" must sound so funny in english). So it's some pretty serious racing i'm doing and it takes up a lot of my time.

Unlike many on this forum, my priority when choosing a bike is performance over weight...

Right now i only have one racing bike, as i've picked my former racing bike, a Ridley Orion, apart to sell it. In february i'll get a team bike, and hopefully also buy either a Cervelo or a Walser TT-bike. The bike i'm going to introduce you to, is my nearly brand-new winter/CX-bike - A Focus Mares AX 1.0.
So here's the specifications:

For the road:

Frame: Focus Cycle Cross Alloy triple butted - size 54
Fork: Mares Cyclocross Carbon

Gear shifters: Shimano Ultegra grey
Front derailleur: Shimano Ultegra grey

Chain: Shimano 105

So today i had my first ride on the CX-setup. How brilliant!

Although it feels totally wrong to ride a roadbike in the forrest, it is absolutly amazing how it just gets through everything.
