When Oscar Harnstrom visited Windmill Wheels.


The super cool Oscar Harnstrom is a 26 year old Swedish World Cup Downhill rider racing for Exceptio Sports and Commencal bikes.

They visited the early part of June on his way up to the Fort William DH World Cup. We had a chat about the Exceptio brand and bikes.

He has had many wins in his racing career so far and places well at the world cups against some top competition. Oscar is really down to earth who loves Coffee as much as the next cyclist, good grub and racing mountain bikes.

The Exceptio /Commencal DH team has two riders on board. That is normal for Mtb teams as it is single man race against the clock down mountains around Europe America and Canada.

It’s the Dh World Championships this weekend in Val Di Sole Italy and we wish him the best of luck. He has to try and better his Italian teammate Lorenzo Suding best place of 16th.

Here Oscar is wearing his new red Endurance sock made by Exceptio but also has his Swedish flagged signature sock for the colder days. The feature he loves the most is support around the ankle and cushioned foot bed for hard days on the pedals.

Check out his Instagram account @oscarharnstrom for cool pics and keep up to date with how he is getting on.

Thanks to Rob Horsley MD of Exceptio for putting Oscar in touch with us and the continued support with the brand in store.
