Team Eksjöhus new skier Joel Andersson.

“I started my dedication to long-distance skiing two years ago. Becoming part of Team Eksjöhus is the next natural step in my career, and I am incredibly happy to have the opportunity to go for the team next season,” says Joel.

After the years at the ski high school, Mora-born Joel Andersson moved to Östersund during the pandemic year 2020 to dedicate himself to long-distance skiing.

“I noticed early in my career that the longer distances suited me best. As a Mora skier, Vasaloppet is also one of the biggest competitions for me. Therefore, it felt completely natural to focus on long-distance races directly after high school.”

Last season’s exemplary performances, with the overall victory in the Swedish long-distance cup as the highlight, caught the team’s attention. Via his training buddy and Team Eksjöhus skier Axel Jutterström, Joel got in touch with sports director Espen Trældal.

“We want to build a team with skiers who can develop and are passionate about long-distance skiing. Joel is a hope for the future and one important part of that journey. He is dedicated, determined, and has great potential to develop. We are pleased that he chooses to take the next step in his journey with us in Team Eksjöhus,” says Sports Director Espen Trældal.

In Team Eksjöhus, Joel hopes to continue his fast development as a long-distance skier.

“Last season, I took huge steps in my double poling and showed that I can keep a high and even level over a long period of time. In Team Eksjöhus, I want to develop further and hope to contribute with important points and a good mood to the team.”
