Dahle Flesjå sets fall schedule

Multiple mountain bike world and Olympic champion Gunn-Rita Dahle-Flesjå was forced to stop racing early in the 2007 after catching a viral infection in springtime. She declared her season over and has decided not to defend her title at the world championships in Fort William, Scotland in a few weeks, but she will appear at a few races this fall.

She was scheduled to participate in Norway's popular Birkebeiner Rittet marathon race, and she'll be journeying to Beijing for the Olympic Test event and scope out the race course. Whether she actually competes in the test event is still to be determined depending on her health.
