Very few people are as cool, classy and determined as the guy sitting by the emergency exit on Austrian Airlines.
For years I've been looking at this legendary picture of Marc Girardelli, his father Helmut and the owner of this hotel Karl Heinz. Today we replayed the scene. Karl Heinz is still the hotel owner, I played Marc, and my coach Franz the star of the play in the role as Helmut Girardelli.

This crew worked hard and kicked ass at the Ironman test yesterday. Running and stretching to get sore muscles working again today. #attackingvikings
Family time. Fun having all my cousins come visit.
Another day of cruising the water
Scandinavian super summer! It's 21.00 and still so nice outside. Might not be the last swim today.
Out enjoying the Scandinavian summer weather with my dad.

One last climb and one lest bike selfie. Made it to the Riviera and now these legs need some rest. Keeping my bike short on for the razor-sharp tan line! @strombern #therules
Another mountain and we're getting close to our goal on the Riviera. (this is selfie week...)
I'm sorry about all these selfies. But you get pretty excited when you climb these mountains. Bonette, highest mountains pass in the Alps!
Big day! First Alpe d'Huez and then we drove south to get out of the rain and climb some more mountains.
Top of Alpe d'Huez #selfie . Dragging 100 kg of downhill weight with me...
Met this beautiful Italian in the French Alps. We're getting to know each other pretty well, so tomorrow we're gonna take on Alpe d'Huez
Wimbledon final!! @DjokerNole -@rogerfederer Is this the highest level of sports?? Impressed...

Same old destination, different means of transportation
Lost 5 kilos over the winter. Most of it during the time spent in Sochi. Hard work in the gym and at the dinner table and now I'm back where I belong. #100
