You could feel that this was something else….

Another edition of Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet is in the books. 2019 again brought us strong performances throughout the whole start field.

New (unoffical) record on the Mora-Sälen-Mora distance

Are you wondering why this post has a picture of a donkey? Well, that is not any donkey, that is an Turkmenian kulan. The kulans are one of the fastest land mammals and can run at high speed of 70 km/h and on marathon distances still 50 km/h! Teemu Virtanen did not came up to…

March 29: Listen to a great story

It is a fantastic story behind the Red Bull Nordenskiöldsloppet. On March 29 (2019) you have the chance to hear more about it. The friends of Ajtte museum in Jokkmokk have invited Olle Backman who will give a lecture on the history behind the race.

He did it – 180 km round trip on skis

Jan-Erik Länta, Jokkmokk, managed the ultra race – he skied from Mora to Sälen and back to Mora. A round trip of 180 km, which he succeeded with in 12 hours and 40 minutes. – It was over an hour faster than I had expected. But I have a routine from the Red Bull Nordenskiöld…

They ski from Mora to Sälen and back

As you by now know for sure: the Nordenskiöldsrace is 220 km and the world’s toughest cross-country skiing race. What you not might know is, that the conditions for the race 2018 were even tougher an…

Born with skis on the feet…

You may know that the Nordenskiöldsrace builds upon an amazing history which is about the great skiing skills of the Sami in our region. I promise you it is worth reading it, which you can do here. Still, skiing is part of our lifestyle here, and you might say that Ebba Stina Rimpi and  Tuva…
