Max Novak is one of the Pro Team athletes named for Team Aker Dæhlie Season XV.

According to a press release, Team Aker Dæhlie is strengthening for the upcoming season, with a team consisting of 41 athletes from seven countries competing in Ski Classics, the World Cup, the Scandinavian Cup, and the Norwegian Cup, with 13 para athletes being an integral part of the squad. The venture is called “BEYOND” and is also about performing beyond going fast on the cross-country track.  

“Team Aker Dæhlie is looking forward to a new season and further development of the Beyond concept. We continue to have a focus on groups that are underrepresented in cross-country skiing, nationally and internationally. It is important to have teams that dare to invest more in women, para-athletes, and younger and international athletes. Through action, Team Aker Dæhlie will help further develop cross-country skiing,” says Knut Nystad.

In Team Aker Dæhlie’s first season, 2022/2023, athletes from the team took a total of six medals in the World Championships in Planica, the Para World Championships in Östersund, and the Junior World Championships in Whistler – two medals in each of the championships. The Pro Team was ranked as the best team in Ski Classics.

“We have established a team that performs together, regardless of differences. Team Aker Dæhlie is ready to develop the concept and cross-country skiing further,” says the team’s general manager Knut Nystad.
