Johannes Høsflot Klæbo is among the twenty-five Norwegian cross-country skiers selected for the World Cup premiere in Ruka, Finland.

Ruka, Finland, is the place for this year’s cross-country skiing World Cup premiere. The event starts on Friday, November 24, with a sprint race in classic technique. On Saturday, November 25, a 10km classic style race with individual start awaits. And on Sunday, November 26, the World Cup premiere weekend ends with a 20km mass start race in freestyle technique. 

In a press release, the Norwegian Ski Association has named their cross-country ski team for the upcoming World Cup premiere in Ruka. Norway will start with 25 athletes. On the women’s side, Norway will start with 11 skiers. Already on the men’s side, 14 athletes will start for the Scandinavian country. 

“Three skiers have free place for the World Cup in Ruka. It is Johannes Høsflot Klæbo and Tiril Udnes Weng, both winners of the 2022/2023 World Cup. For Tiril, the Ruka weekend unfortunately comes too early, due to illness, as previously communicated. Harald Østberg Amundsen has a free place as winner of the Scandinavian Cup 2022/2023. In addition to the elite skiers who distinguished themselves at Beitostølen, there are several skiers from Equinor Rekrutlandslag and the regional teams Team Elon who distinguished themselves at Beitostølen and thus get an opportunity in the World Cup opening,” says the press release.
