A feature of the logo is an icon representing all the important components of The Nordic Trailblazer:
The cross represents Jonas' beliefs and Christian upbringing. It is also an integral part of the Nordic countries shared history and heritage, which is why it is an included element in most of the nordic flags.
The Viking is a Nordic traveler and adventurer. The legacy and traces of the viking age still lives on in the Nordic today. They were Expert navigators exporting Nordic culture to foreign land while simultaneously bringing foreign influences back home.
As a world traveler from early on in his cycling career, Jonas has ventured out in the same spirit, being a promoter of Nordic cycling culture, while taking international cycling culture back with him to share with others.
The bike is what makes it all possible. A vehicle for transportation, an equipment to use in competition, a companion to travel the world with, a tool that can change lives, and a passion to share with others.
The Nordic Trailblazer is supported by a hard working crew.
