Tord Asle Gjerdalen
Ski Classics Pro Team athlete Tord Asle Gjerdalen, a true legend in the world of long-distance skiing, describes the Moonlight Classic as the “coolest race” he has ever experienced:
“Moonlight Classic is the coolest race I have ever done. With so many torches showing the way through a hard and challenging course in the magnificent Alps.”
Gjerdalen supports cross-country skiing enthusiasts to partake in this memorable event:
“It’s a race I highly recommend to anyone who is fond of cross-country skiing.”
