Linn Svahn is now open to the idea of Ski Classics, but the main goal is the World Cup and the World Championships.

“Ski Classics is very interesting. I absolutely want to go to a race this winter, but the World Cup and the World Championships come first,” this is what Linn Svahn tells SVT Sport.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Linn Svahn had chosen to stand outside the national team squads for next winter. Svahn, who missed last season due to an injured shoulder, explained her decision.

“This decision is based on the fact that I want to work tighter with my own team at home and set up a plan that is optimal both for my recovery from the injury and developed and motivating towards my future championship goals,” says Linn Svahn in the press release.

Now Svahn is open to the idea of starting on Ski Classics already this winter:

“The World Cup and the World Championships come first, but if there is time after that, I absolutely want to go to a race in Ski Classics already this winter. I really find Ski Classics very interesting. It’s fun to see how many people are attracted there and who take big steps, so we’ll see if I end up there in the future. But it will not be this year,” says Svahn to SVT Sport and continues:

“I have several clubmates dedicated to long-distance skiing; Jenny Larsson, Oskar Kardin, and Emil Persson, and I try to hang on to them when my shoulder can handle it. I see it as a strength to be able to use those who are extremely strong in their cause. They are really good double polers, so there is a lot to learn from them,” says Svahn to SVT.
