As the second last month of the year, November, has started, our Pro Teams are heading towards north for early season ski training on snow. Some of them go to Beitostølen or Sjusjøen in Norway or even all the way up to the northern part of the country while others go to Sweden, for example Team Serneke's Magdalena Pajala is currently in Gällivare for snow training - more about her coming up this week!
There are several artificial snow tracks open in Finland, and even down south Imatra and Lahti opened their ski tracks earlier than ever before. In Vuokatti, the first Suomi Cup (Finland Cup) races were arranged this weekend, and in Östersund, Sweden, the first Supersprint event of the series will take place this coming weekend. Beitostølen will host a cross-country ski race in a couple of weeks, and there will be many more all over the Nordics. Ruka in Finland will host the first FIS World Cup race weekend at the end of this month at the same time when Visma Ski Classics' Season X kicks off in Livigno, Italy, with the Pro Team Tempo and the Individual Prologue races.
Stay tuned for more news, reports and videos from our Pro Teams as they are preparing themselves for the most exciting season in the history of long distance skiing.
