Ski Classics Grand Finale Janteloppet

Janteloppet, a Ski Classics Challengers event last season, is a unique skiing race starting and finishing at Mosetertoppen. The original 20km event conceived by the renowned traditional cross-country skier and Pro Team athlete Petter Northug Jr., Team Janteloppet, brings together the World’s top skiers, young talents, enthusiasts, and recreational skiers, delivering fun, memorable moments, and competitive spirit in equal proportions.

Now, in a significant development, Janteloppet expands its horizons by joining the prestigious Ski Classics Pro Tour calendar for the much-anticipated Ski Classics Grand Finale of Season XV. The event is a unique 100-kilometer long-distance lapping challenge that promises to deliver a riveting spectacle.

Earlier in the season, David Nilsson, Director of Ski Classics, expressed his enthusiasm for the new addition, stating:

“A Grand Finale is part of a theatre play where all the stars are called upon the stage a last time to meet the audience’s appreciation and applause. The athletes from our 35 Pro Teams are our stars in Ski Classics,” and continued:

“The Ski Classics Grand Finale is a new addition to Ski Classics, ending the season with a prestigious 100-kilometer race packed with action and show. For the Pro Team athletes, it is the ambition to create a new dimension to celebrate a long season in style. For recreational skiers, the ambition is to create a true challenge, trying to, during the season, qualify to be part of the 100km race or choosing the 20km open race before joining the after-ski!”

Petter Northug was equally delighted to join the Ski Classics Pro Tour calendar, as Northug himself exclaimed: 

“Janteloppet has been a lifelong dream of mine, and its realization has surpassed even my wildest expectations. I firmly believe that expanding the reach of races that unite recreational skiers and elite athletes is paramount for the continued relevance of cross-country skiing among younger generations,” expressed Petter Northug.

Grand Finale Concept

Ski Classics introduced the Grand Finale concept to conclude Season XV with unparalleled greatness. David Nilsson, Director of Ski Classics, shed light on this development:

“The Grand Finale concept aims to create an exciting and spectacular ending to the season. For Janteloppet, it involves a looping course with various sprints and other elements that transform the event into a captivating show rather than a traditional ski race,” Nilsson explains and added:

“The inspiration for this concept draws from the iconic finish on the Champs-Élysées in the Tour de France, adding a similar level of spectacle and grandeur.”
