Team Nordic Jobs Worldwide, the only Estonian Pro Team, is getting ready for the season start. The athletes are currently training in various locations in Europe, and their spirits are high up.
A part of the team got together in Levi, Finland, by accident. Henri Roos and Jürgen Kukk decided to go to Finland for their early snow training, and they bumped into their Finnish teammates Veli-Matti Räsänen and Terhi Pollari. The coincident prompted them to do some really good training sessions together, and they were able catch up on each other’s progress.
The Swedish athletes of the team Sofia Lindberg, Gabriel Strid and Gustav Nordström are training on their home turf and taking part in some ski races. Gabriel participated in the long distance ski season opening, organized by Lager 157 Ski Team, in Orsa, and he had a chance to test his shape against the best skiers of the world. Gustav and Sofia have been training intensively in Umeå, and they have set their sights on the Pro Tour premiere in Orsa.
The team manager, Mart Kevin Polluste, packed his bags and flew to Italy. He is now in Livigno having a great training camp at high altitude. According to him, the conditions and tracks are perfect and his training proceeds well.
Team Nordic Jobs Worldwide is fully committed to make a splash in the Prologue races in Orsa just before Christmas, and they want to carry the flags of Estonia, Finland and Swedish with pride.
