Aiming for the FIS Marathon Cup

Madshus racer Geir Ludvig Aasen Ouren (NOR) joins the new Team NPRO, consisting of four elite marathon ski racers aiming to challenge the established marathon teams for the FIS Ski Classics events.

The four racers have aspirations for both podium finishes and overall titles in the FIS ski marathons this season, including the largest and longest events such as Marcialonga (ITA), Vasaloppet (SWE) and BIrkebeinerrennet (NOR).  Team NPRO is only the third Norwegian professional marathon team and one of only a handful elite teams internationally.

The new team, which was established this spring, is also planning to start a masters/citizen racers training group in the future. The intention is to keep growing the sport and involve as many skiers as possible at a variety of levels.
