Shorten Holmenkollen? We Asked Erik Valnes What He Thinks


“Totally disagree (with those who want to shorten it) 😬 The 50k in Holmenkollen has too much history, can’t change it. It is the definition of cross country skiing!

…Yes, I am doing the 50k. It’s my first chance in Kollen, and it’s the biggest race for a Norwegian! Can’t say no to that. Hope to recover before the Sprint Tour in North America 😅”

Valnes, 23, is currently second in the World Cup Sprint rankings, behind only Johannes Klaebo
