Kati Roivas, Team Eksjöhus, finished the 3 Zinnen Ski Marathon in second place last weekend.

Expressing his satisfaction, Team Eksjöhus Pro Team Director Espen Träldal remarked, “I am very satisfied, and I have been after every weekend lately. We are constantly taking new steps and building a team that has a lot of balls to play with.”

At La Venosta ITT, Kati Roivas from Team Eksjöhus achieved her first podium in the Ski Classics Pro Tour. This trend continued after the Christmas break as the Finnish skier secured a second-place finish in the 3 Zinnen Ski Marathon.

In a display of remarkable teamwork, Magni Smedås, returning to competition after back problems, demonstrated sportsmanship. When Roivas encountered a setback with a broken pole mid-race, Smedås handed over her own, ensuring her teammate did not lose the momentum. In a Pro Team’s press release, Träldal expressed pride in this team spirit, stating, “It’s always the team before the self.”

Smedås finished fifth in her season opener, with Sofie Elebro claiming the eighth position. On the men’s side, three Team Eksjöhus athletes secured top 10 positions, with Axel Jutterström leading in fifth place.

Reflecting on Jutterström’s performance, Träldal noted, “Axel has set the bar high, and it is impressive how he comes back and performs again after being ill during Christmas.” Jutterström narrowly missed victory by two and a half seconds.

Thomas Ødegaarden and Eirik Sverdrup Augdal’s early lead in the Climb prize showcased their outstanding effort. However, despite a valiant attempt, they were caught up with 12 kilometers to go, resulting in a ninth place for Augdal and a tenth for Ødegaarden.

Team Eksjöhus continued its dominance by securing the Pro Team competition for the third consecutive event, maintaining a strong overall lead. Träldal emphasized, “If we challenge for the title in the team competition, it is proof that we achieve good results individually.”
