A press release from the Swedish Ski Association informed us that the summer’s second national team training camp is starting. Now the national cross-country skiing team gathers in Torsby for seven days of camp with several sessions on snow in the Torsby Ski Tunnel.
The A national team and Team BAUHAUS gathered Thursday evening in Torsby for the national team camp.
“After a hot summer with a lot of training at home, we are now starting camp activities with the national teams again. Being able to come to Torsby and minus four degrees in the ski tunnel will be optimal for us,” says national team manager Anders Byström.
Seven intense training days are on the schedule, with sessions both in and outside the ski tunnel. Among other things, rollerski on Tossebergsklätten and tough interval sessions up Hovfjället. But according to the national team manager, the most significant focus will be on snow.
“We will focus on skiing on snow and reaching new levels in technique work. The team has great ambition and knowledge, and the members can give each other feedback that develops each individual,” he says.
The national team camp will also be visited by Lovisa Modig, Falun Borlänge SK, and Team Svenska Spel skier Gustav Kvarnbrink, Åsarna IK, who will both participate in the camp and train together with the A national team and Team BAUHAUS.
In direct connection with the camp, the national team will continue to Trollhättan Action Week and the third edition of the Smart Energy Summer Cup, which runs from August 26–28.
