This weekend we went the whole planned course for Sigtunarännet on wonderful ices. The ice is thick and smooth without any major obstacles along the entire course. Saturday offered a sunny skating trip on hard smooth ices while on Sunday it was a little warmer and therefore a thin water film on top of the ice. The week to come looks to offer varying weather with hints of cold, heat, snow and rain. However, it looks promising for our trajectory. Our spare option, the adjacent Garnsviken has very thick ice (>30 cm) which is also very smooth and nice. It looks very good for this year's race even though we know conditions can change quickly.
