Henrik Öijer Honorary Award 2010

I'm so proud of this award. From 2010 a group within the Swedish Cycling Union, called CX Sverige, will hand out an award to the best man and woman in Swedish cyclocross. I did not get the award, but it has my name on it. You see, I am Henrik Öijer. They named the award after me for what I have done for cyclocross in Sweden. I feel so honored to have this award named after me, it feels unreal.
