Once again, we are setting our sights on a new Ski Classics season, and all signs show that this winter will undoubtedly be one of a kind.
For Season XV, 35 Pro Teams are eager to return to “business as usual” and compete in 15 Pro Tour events on 11 event weekends. The Ski Classics Pro Tour kicks off with the Pro Team Tempo in Bad Gastein, Austria, on Saturday, December 9, and ends with the Ski Classics Grand Finale Janteloppet in Hafjell, Norway, on April 13, 2024.
At the publishing time, 257 athletes registered via their respective Pro Teams, of which 96 (37,35%) were female and 161 (62,65%) male athletes. The total number of Youth athletes is 102 (39,69% of the total), with 42 Youth women (43,75% of the women) and 60 Youth men (37,27% of the men). Naturally, these numbers will change during the season as more skiers register for specific events.
This season will be an excellent platform for Pro Teams and their athletes. There are skiers from Austria, China, Czech Republic, Spain, Estonia, Finland, France, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, USA, Denmark, Australia, Slovenia, Netherlands, Iceland, Chinese Taipei, and the usual suspects like Norway and Sweden are, of course, well represented.
Norway has the most significant number of athletes, 85, 33,07% of the total number of athletes, while Sweden takes the second place with 44 skiers (17,12%). Finland is in third place, with 22 athletes (8,56%).
After the top 3, there’s close competition for the following three countries. France comes with 19 athletes (7,39%), Germany has 18 skiers (7,00%) and the Czech Republic has 17 athletes (6,61%).
From Sunday, October 15, until Thursday, October 26, all the Pro Teams will be presented more interactively with articles and videos, and you will learn about these 35 Pro Teams and their athletes, which can help you determine your own season favorites.
Three Pro Teams will be released daily at 8:00, 12:00 and 17:00 CET. All you have to do is stay tuned to ProXCskiing.com and SkiClassics.com and prepare for fun and thrilling presentations.
