New Day – New Strava Record. And By Whom!

With season’s abrupt early end Norwegian skiers have a lot of capacity left, clearly.

Some of them are now engaged in what looks like Citius, Altius, Fortius competition.

Or, at least, Amplius or ” longer”.

Enter Joar Thele.

Thele, 26, runs for Team Ragde Eiendom and twice finished 11th in Vasaloppet – in 2019 and 2020.

The 204k sessoon his Lyn clubmate and world champion in 50k Hans Christer Holund clocked last weekend, clearly felt somewhat underwhelming for a long distance pro.

So he did 321.

That’s three hundred twenty one – read it slowly.

In 18 hours, with elevation gain of some 3000m at the pace most of us would consider to be competition-worth 😱

You think that’s impressive? Wait till you learn who was Thele’s company on mind-boggling 321k track.

Anders Aukland – captain and embodiment spirit of Team Ragd! Can’t but say it – Anders is turning 48 in September.

Aukland also put his Strava track on Instagram and contains additional info we, frankly, did not think even possible. Unless you’re Anders Auklund, clearly: calories burned – 16000.

Fin langtur med hardhausen @joarthele igår. Gikk overaskende fint, litt tørst på slutten bare! 321km i Nordmarka er langt! Inne litt over midnatt. Moving time 17.51 litt over 3000hm. Fint føre, men mye vind. Ikke tom. Fylte vann på Tversjøstallen pumpekran 2 ganger. Bærte ellers på Cola og Redbull. Hodelykt siste 5t. Dette var ikke noe rekordforsøk, bare en lang og fin skitur i Nordmarka, og vi ville bli ferdig til midnatt. Var mer sliten hver eneste dag på Grønland 2018. @joarthele er en ekte hardhaus og super sterk, så langt ifra jålebukk og selfiekonge det går ann å komme! Takk for inspirasjonen @edgarhaugen Håper dette kan inspirere andre til å få noen skiturer i marka, eller finne sin egen utfordring og eventyr! Og for de som planlegger 321km på en dag i Nordmarka: Lykke til👍🥴 #hardhaus #oldschool #langrenn #nordmarka #greenland #expedition #crosscountryskiing @teamragde @fischer_norge @swix_sport @lillsportnorge @maurten_official @Northug @arcticsuperhealth
