Britta Johansson Norgren the greatest Legend to date.

Long-distance skiing as a race format has existed for decades. Still, to become a Legend, a Pro Tour athlete must win at least five individual Ski Classics events, with the races before the first season in 2011 also counting for the athletes that have been taking part in Ski Classics. 

But who is the number one Legend? This question shouldn’t take too long to be answered as it is pretty apparent: Britta Johansson Norgren. She has had 25 victories during her prosperous career. 

Johansson Norgren is followed by three other Legends: Anders Aukland, Seraina Boner, and Andreas Nygaard. Aukland has 16 wins, Boner and Nygaard are tied with 15 wins each.

At the moment, were inducted into the Ski Classics Hall of Fame 20 skiers, ranging from 25 victories – Britta Johansson Norgren, to 5 wins – Daniel Tynell, Sandra Hansson and John Kristian Dahl.
