AC Junior racer and Stinson Beach’s own Bjorn Fox spent his summer vacation punching tickets in his family’s native land of Sweden. Not only did Bjorn win the Swedish National Road Championships, but he was selected to be attend the Swedish National Cycling Academy, a program that combines academic studies and an emphasis on racing bikes. We can only imagine that the structure and knowledge he’ll pick up in Sweden will push Bjorn to even greater heights.
After some incredible success racing cyclo-cross in Northern California last year, word from Bjorn’s family is that he’ll return to the states in December to race the Portland USGP and the US National Championships in Bend.
We’re hoping that when he comes, he’ll bring a signed jersey from Swedish compatriot Emilia Fahlin.
