Skarverennet 2009

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

After successfully completing the Birkebeinerritet this summer, I decided to take the next sport challenge in Norway; Skarverennet! This is a cross country skiing race which will be held on April 25 2009 and runs for 38km (!) from Finse to Ustaoset.

It’s gonna be an interesting challenge, since I have no experience in cross country skiing whatsoever (well, ok, I tried it once earlier this year). I’ll have to train a lot this winter, work on both my condition and technique; with mountainbiking I had my technique to compensate for less condition, I am lacking both in cross country skiing at the moment…oof!!
