Swedish siblings to compete for Team Ramudden in Ski Classics season premiere
Team Ramudden, the reigning champions of the men’s Youth and Sprint bibs in the previous Ski Classics season, is gearing up for the start of the winter season with the addition of a Swedish sibling pair.

Team Ramudden reflects on a successful last season, where Emilie Fleten delivered a strong performance with several top finishes, although she fell short of securing her first victory. However, everything clicked on the first Sunday of March, and Fleten claimed victory in the ninety-ninth edition of Vasaloppet.
A couple of weeks later, Alfred Buskqvist secured the win in the Ski Classics Sprint classification, and Amund Riege claimed the Youth classification.
Heading into this year’s season, the team has decided to focus on a Swedish lineup, selecting two athletes from this roster to participate in the Ski Classics season premiere in Bad Gastein.
According to Langd.se, the chosen pair consists of the sisters Emma and Wilma Jönsson, both representing Östersunds SK.
Wilma, aged 26, finished fifteenth in Tjejvasan last season and achieved podium placements in several national long-distance races. Emma, aged 23, trailed Wilma by just over a minute in the summer’s Alliansloppet and demonstrated a strong performance in a recent ten-kilometer race in Idre at the Ford Smart Energy Cup one and a half weeks ago.
