In a social media post, Värnamorullen confirmed the start of Thomas Gifstad, Team Robinson Trentino, at this year’s edition. The Ski Classics Challengers event takes place on Saturday, September 3, in Sweden.
“We welcome @tgifstad (Thomas Gifstad) back to Värnamo for the second year in a row. He comes all the way from Norway to participate in the Värnamorullen, impressive!”
“The Värnamorullen was an enjoyable experience last year! A very cool course that we competed in, especially the stretch towards the line, made the finish exciting with many skiers fighting for the win. The weather was nice, and lots of people along the course created a fantastic atmosphere that couldn’t have been better. And not least super service from the organizers who provide everything needed at the event and take care of the participants. That’s why I’m returning here because I can’t miss it. See you, Thomas Gifstad!”
Thomas Gifstad was third at Värnamorullen in 2021.
On Saturday, September 3, Värnamorullen will take place in Värnamo, in the middle of southern Sweden, and for the second time as a Ski Classics Challengers event.
The organizers invite professional, recreational skiers and youngsters to an event with an excellent course along scenic landscapes and a good road surface. The rollerski track is relatively flat and suits all levels of athletes.
The distance of the main race, part of the Ski Classics Challengers, is 40km, while shorter distances are offered. During the race, participants can enjoy nature with meadows and small villages on the way. After the race, everyone is invited to a “friend feast” in the organizers’ clubhouse with good food and fellow skiing enthusiasts.
