It’s springtime, officially, which means the world skiing elites are wrapping up their holidays and returning to the tracks. Mostly, snow tracks, wherever they can be found mid-May.
Some, like A Norwegian Lahti golden medalist in relay, Niklas Dyrhaug, however, appear to be combining work and pleasure, by improving their balance and upper core muscles. There’s a visible abundance of the latter in this photo:
Team Sweden’s Sofia Henriksson expects the viewers to comment on both her V1 and V2 skating technique. A well deserved Instagram Like from us, Sofia!

Ditto for a Russian ski sprinter Polina Kovaleva. Those mountains make you fly, Polina!
No spring training dress review would be complete without the King of Cross Country Ski and, simultaneously, a reigning supremo of social networks, Petter Northug Jr.
Here he is, congratulating everybody on the National Day of Norway, standing on top of Galdhøpiggen, Norway’s highest mountain.
