As Ski Classics Season XV hits its final stretch, we find ourselves in the climax of the Pro Tour. With just three Pro Tour events remaining – Reistadløpet, Summit 2 Senja, and the Ski Classics Grand Finale – Janteloppet – the world’s top Pro Teams are gearing up for a fierce battle on the snow.

Are you curious who the favorites are for this season’s Pro Team glory? Dive into the action with us at ProXCskiing.com as we uncover the powerhouse Pro Teams vying for supremacy in the final stretch of Ski Classics Season XV.

Pro Team Competition

The Pro Team competition is determined by the total number of Pro Team points, and Pro Team Sprint points after the season. Pro Team points are distributed at each Pro Tour event based on the Pro Team’s collected Champion points from the Pro Team’s best two male athletes and best two female athletes, the total Sprint and Climb points collected by the team, 50% of the Youth points of the best female and male athlete in the team and 50% of the Champion points of the best athlete from an emerging country.

Pro Team Favorites – Ski Classics Season XV – After Birkebeinerrennet

The Pro Team competition is fierce, with every point earned carrying immense weight. After the Birkebeinerrennet showdown, it’s clear that Team Eksjöhus leads the charge with 2080 points. But who else is in the running for the coveted title of ‘Best Pro Team Season XV’?

Team Ragde Charge isn’t so far behind, boasting 1780 points and hungry to seize the top spot. Meanwhile, Team Engcon holds firm in third place with 1620 points, poised to make a push for the podium. And let’s not forget about the determined contenders like Team Ramudden, with 1580 points, eager to shape up the standings with their tenacity. 

The four Pro Teams will likely be on the list at the end of Season XV. 

The current number one Pro Team on the standings, Team Eksjöhus, is doing strong with great skiers on the squad like Magni Smedås, Kati Roivas, Sofie Elebro, Thomas Ødegaarden, Axel Jutterström, and Morten Eide Pedersen, who can get many crucial points in their respective categories.

Team Ragde Charge is currently ranked as the second-best Pro Team, and they crave to be back on top and will go for it with all guns blazing during the final part of Season XV.

Team Engcon is the third-best Pro Team at the moment. They have the Ski Classics Legend Ida Dahl, while Hanna Lodin and Tove Ericsson support her the best they can. Dahl is not in her best shape this year to win the Champion competition (currently in 6th place), but she is in fourth place at the Sprint competition, and at the Climb competition overall, she is in 3rd place. Amund Hoel leads the Sprint competition in the men’s side, while Ole Jørgen Bruvoll, Eddie Edström, Johan Tjelle, and Anton Elvseth are having a solid season helping the Pro Team overall. 

Team Ramudden is currently ranked as the fourth-best Pro Team, with a powerful Pro Team that can challenge the abovementioned squads. Emilie Fleten is the undisputed leader at the Champion competition, and if every team member performs at their best, this team will crush the field during the final part of the season and grab a spot on the Pro Team podium. 

These are the Pro Teams with the best chances of getting a podium in this category. Lager 157 Ski Team could be a dark horse. Still, it will depend on the form of Emil Persson, Karolina Hedenström, and all the great skiers like Torleif Syrstad, Runar Skaug Mathisen, Oskar Kardin, and Alvar Myhlback, who can get many needed points in their respective categories.

Many factors can affect a team’s performance throughout the final part of the season, and it is not easy to predict the outcome of this competition. But if an order needs to be established, it is as follows:
