K! Stick to your role!

- Likewise

What was all that nonsense?

- Just testing what Eetu's got in him

He's in top form.

No need to test him

These are the tactics for Sunday:

Everyone will be bunched up

on the first few circuits

If someone tries to take off,

you two close them down

After 100 km or so,

the pace should pick up

If someone tries to break away,

you two stick to their heel

The steep climb at the end

makes the race really tricky

Neither of you is good at hills,

so build up an early lead

Your job on the last circuit

is to pace Eetu

And you with your famous sprint,

break away on the last stretch

K stays behind

to hold off the others

You must ride aggressively,

and work together

You'll handle the Kylml climb, huh?

Why wouldn't I?

- What kind of an answer is that?

Of course Eetu will handle it.

- I didn't ask you

I sure as hell will

Piril, the League boss,

will be there on Sunday

This is your big break

What if I had a chance too?

Apart from Eetu

Your job is to help Eetu win

This is Eetu's summer

Kind of feel like skipping work.

- So do I

Just think, if we quit, we could

concentrate on training

But money talks.

- More or less

Jons! K signing in!

Jons! All done!

K. Finnlab. Delivery

to the Cable Factory!

K receiving!

Looks like I'll soon be

pedaling the streets myself... guys are already

working like hell

I can't take on anymore...

K signing in!

Very good... Hold on

Hey, I've got a full bag for you.

I want some action!

Yeah, yeah...

I promise. Bye

Oona. O.K.

Let's make up a job for you

Let's say you had to go from

the Gardens to the Kamppi Center

You have twenty seconds,

full blast

Through Kaisaniemi St

to Simo St and so on...

But if I was in a rush,

I'd sneak through the train station...

Then up the hill,

past the Post Office

Central Station is a b*tch,

from there it's easy

Past the hotel and the Tennis Palace,

straight on, and what did you say...

The Kamppi Center?

The one next to the SAS Hotel?

Yup, the ugly one

You think you can handle the job?

- Absolutely

Vamos said Tori Amos

What the f***...

I'll have my revenge

Good looking, eh?

Student charm.

- What's wrong with student charm?

Summer crop, but when fall comes...

- What about the fall?


- So you can show Oona the ropes

I'll go!

- O.K. You're on

Have you cycled for long?

MTB for years, but I just bought

a racer. - Tough sport

And you?

- 15 thousand a year

What size is your head?

- I don't know

It's funny how few people

know the size of their head

Helena at the Cable Factory.

The client has moved

Yup. The new address is...

- And you're telling me now

Hi there.

- Hi

Have you worked out the

tactics for Sunday? - Yup.

And you're supposed to win?

- And I will

Unless your chain breaks,

like last time

K! The pool will close soon.

- I'm coming

That's all he's been doing lately.

Scribbling in that notebook

What are you talking about?

- Your mania for statistics

You've got to keep notes

so you can time yourself right

Isn't that what coaches are for?

Hey, with Mr. Ski's method

I would have peaked in March

Once a skiing coach,

always a skiing coach

It just bugs you that he hasn't

discovered your talents yet

You have to prove your skills

if you want to succeed

What is that supposed to mean?

- Going all out and actually trying

Why did you stop?

- Just cramps

F***ing hell,

I've had enough of this

While others are training down south,

we're stuck in the backwoods

We've got to get on the national team,

this season

We have a fair chance.

- Fair! Jesus, is that your attitude?
