Team Maenpaa's journey to Pro Team status began with a group of construction workers who shared a passion for competitive skiing.
"The uniqueness of the teams is that it all started from a bunch of active construction workers who liked to compete against each other. The team evolved from a company team to a professional team in Ski Classics," says Pro Team Director Kim Maenpaa.
One of the defining characteristics of Team Maenpaa is the remarkable cohesion that exists among the squad. The athletes work closely together, fostering a sense of unity and teamwork that sets them apart, with most of the team members calling Finnish Ostrobothnia their home, creating a strong local connection.
