Changes to Team Edux after successful winter

Ski Classics Season XIV’s best Finnish Pro Team, Team Edux, finished 15th place in the Pro Team competition. According to Pro Team Director Eric Storvall, the season was successful, and raising the overall result from 22nd place was a clear improvement.

Eric Storvall, who was Team Edux’s Pro Team Director last season, says many of the team’s skiers also had great personal successes during winter. He highlights Noora Kiviko’s tenth place in Marcialonga and Sofia Lindberg’s several top 20 finishes. On the men’s side, Isac Holmström had a good race at Vasaloppet, although the season was otherwise difficult for him due to illness. Olli Tyrväinen also took a good step forward.

“We had a good training season and good training camps. Everyone in the group was able to develop. My own athletic goals were not fulfilled, but as a team leader, I am satisfied with the season,” says Storvall, who has also raced at Ski Classics.

According to Storvall, Ski Classics is still relatively unknown in Finland, especially compared to Sweden and Norway, which is why the competition against teams from these two countries is difficult. According to him, the most significant difference is that the visibility of the series in Sweden and Norway is significantly higher.

“We are amateurs in a certain way because all our team members go to work, while our opponents in Sweden and Norway are full professionals. All things considered, we did well. The level has risen in Finland, but we are still a little behind.” 

Changes to the Pro Team are expected

There will be changes in the roster of Team Edux, as Storvall, who competed in Ski Classics, will end his active career. At the same time, the Pro Team Director’s job ends. Negotiations regarding the future are still unfinished, but what is certain is that the team will continue its activities.

“I want to invest in other things, and constant traveling no longer suits my life situation. Top sports and the team will certainly be missed, but everything has its time. I wish all the best to those who continue the activities I started in the team,” Storvall sums up.

Noora Kivikko also ended her active career last season, and the team is looking for a new female skier for the upcoming season.

Despite the changes, the team went into the training season motivated. The first camp starts in Jyväskylä on June 15 and is open to everyone who wants to attend. The squad members say that training company from other skiers in the area is welcome at the camp.

In addition to Jyväskylä, the idea is to have training camps in Åland, Vuokatti, and Ylläs.
