Trentino Robinson Trainer Ski Team is sixth in the overall world rankings, the only Italian team present in the most important ski marathon race circuit in the world. An unthinkable placement at the beginning of the season which is the result of a close-knit teamwork between athletes and skimen. The jump in the general ranking list, is also the consequence of the excellent results obtained in the just archived Reistadløpet, a competition of Visma Ski Classics that was held in the north of Norway, above the Arctic polar circle. This is the hardest competition of the circuit because of the incredible slopes that characterize the 50 km track in which 1200 skiers from 20 countries and four different continents were compared this year.
Justyna Kowalczyk won the second place at Reistadløpet in Norway.
Justyna Kowalczyk surrendered only on the final straight just before the finish line, to the Japanese Masako Ishida, winning a splendid 2nd place. Great race by Mauro Brigadoi who grabbed the 22nd place and Francesco Ferrari the 28th. At the 29th place, Dietmar Nockler who, after having been in fight with the best athletes for the 2/3 of the race, has paid a little bit the distance, 44th place Bruno Debertolis and 57th place Loris Frasnelli.
