Team Næringsbanken Stora Enso – Pro Team Presentation Season XIV

This Norwegian Pro Team, with nine skiers, has strengthened its ranks with three international athletes. One comes from the United Kingdom, one from Finland, and one from Sweden. This is a strong team with great athletes and a lot of passion.

On the women’s side, all four skiers on the Team have already shown what they are made of. Julia Angelsiöö has raced in Ski Classics since 2019, and she has 20 top 20 places in total, and last season gave her seven of those positions.

Marie Renée Sørum Gangsø has also been actively racing in Ski Classics since 2019, and she has one more top-20 place than Julia. She has managed to be in the top 12 five times, of which three came last season.

Kati Roivas, on the other hand, started her Ski Classics career in 2020, and last season was a good one for her as she finished among the best 15 women in nine races, of which La Diagonela’s 8th place, Tartu Maraton’s 9th place, and Ylläs-Levi’s 10th place were her best results.

Barbro Sætha is a new recruit who tried to get into the top 20 but could not quite succeed. She was just outside that group in all of the races she did last season. At Tartu Maraton, she finished 22nd, at Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge, 23rd, and at Pustertaler Ski Marathon, 24th, as her best results.

Henrik Arntzen Joks took part in six Pro Tour races and almost managed to be in the top 40 in four of them. At Tartu Maraton and Birkebeinerrennet, he finished 41st. At Reistadløpet, 42nd, and at Ylläs-Levi, he was the 43rd fastest skier.

Sivert Bergan completed the full season, and Vasaloppet’s 70th place was his worst result, while Tartu Maraton and Årefjällsloppet’s 33rd place was his best. His performance was very solid throughout the season.

If Sivert’s performance was solid, Haakan Holden’s seven Pro Tour results were even more so, as his worst position was 54th in the Individual Prologue and his best was La Diagonela’s 40th place. If he raises the bar this season, he will become a solidified top-40 skier.

Mathias Aas Rolid has yet to race much on the Pro Tour, but he finished Toblach-Cortina, 54th, and Marcialonga, 40th, in 2021. Last winter, he chose to race from Sætermoen to Bardufoss and finished 72nd at Reistadløpet. However, his rollerski results at Alliansloppet, 11th, and Klarälvsloppet, 8th, prove that he has the right capacity to ski fast.

Andrew Musgrave, of course, is a name that every cross-country ski fan knows. At the end of November, he started the World Cup season really well in Ruka, Finland, by finishing in the top 6 on both days. This Brit has represented his country at four Olympic Games and seven World Championships and has several top-10 finishes. He is no stranger to Ski Classics, as he has 16 Pro Tour stages under his belt. Last season, he was able to join four times, and Reistadløpet’s 6th place was his best result.

The male skiers, excluding Musgrave, are now good top 50 skiers and can be among the best 40 skiers on a good day. However, they need to up the ante and get closer to the top 20 or even the top 10 skiers. If that happens, this team will challenge the best ones on tour. The women are top-10 performers, but this team needs a podium-caliber female skier, and a male skier for that matter, if they want to breathe down the neck of the top teams.
