EVENT 9: VASALOPPET

After a three-week break, the Visma Ski Classics Pro Tour moves to Scandinavia, and the legendary Vasaloppet is next in line. Tomorrow, the 90 km event from Sälen to Mora in Sweden takes place with almost 16,000 participants. The race, both the men and women, start at 8:00 am CET.

There is a challenging 3 km climb at the beginning of the race, and on the top, there is a Climb competition point for the first time. Additionally, there are two sprint points on the course; in Mångsbordarna at 24 km and in Evertsberg at 47 km. 

In the men’s competition, a tight fight for the Vasaloppet champion title is expected as three former winners are among the favorites tomorrow; last year’s winner Tore Bjørseth Berdal, Team Koteng, the winner of the 2018 edition, Andreas Nygaard, Team Ragde Eiendom, and the winner in 2015 Petter Eliassen, Team Ragde Eiendom. Additionally, the victor of the 2004 race, Anders Aukland is going to participate tomorrow.

In the women’s race, there are also four contestants who have won Vasaloppet in the past; Laila Kveli, Team Engcon, the winner in 2013 and 2014, Katerina Smutná, ED System Bauer Team, the winner in 2016, Lina Korsgren, Team Ramudden, the winner in 2018, and Britta Johansson Norgren, Lager 157 Ski Team, the winner in 2017 and 2019. The last three names are strong candidates for the victory tomorrow.

Other favorites in the women’s category are Astrid Øyre Slind and Kari Vikhagen Gjeitnes, both from Team Koteng, Ida Dahl, Team Ramudden, and Emilie Fleten, Team Ragde Eiendom. Both Dahl and Fleten are racing Vasaloppet for the first time.

In addition to the aforementioned male skiers, there are many other potential podium performers in tomorrow’s race such as Stian Hoelgaard, Team Koteng, Tord Asle Gjerdalen, Team Ragde Eiendom, and a group of Swedish athletes, Max Novak, Team Ramudden, Marcus Johansson, Emil Persson and Andreas Holmberg, all from Lager 157 Ski Team, who crave to get the first Swedish victory since 2012 when Jörgen Brink won with the record time of 3:38:41. 

The weather forecast predicts snowfall, precipitation even close to 8 mm, light breeze from east-northeast, 2 m/s, in Sälen, and gentle breeze in Mora, 5 m/s, from east-northeast. The temperature is about -6 C at the start and about -2 C at the finish.
