Alliansloppet is the world’s biggest rollerski event gathering around 1300 participants in 2018. It has just been announced by the Visma Ski Classics 4th Challengers event the next season. The race is held in Trollhättan, Sweden, which is also the home of the classic Saab car. The new Challengers concept was launched earlier in April this year as a common platform in order to connect and promote long distance skiing events worldwide.
Alliansloppet gather some of the world’s best long distance skiers and also world cup athletes eager to measure their strengths during their preparation season. The relatively easy track will also fit well to beginners and amateurs to take part to their first rollerski event.
-Alliansloppet as the biggest rollerski race in the world warmly welcome Visma Ski Classics to Trollhättan. The winter season and the summer season are finally meeting! We talked several years ago about having rollerski event part of Visma Ski Classics with David Nilsson, and it feels great to see this becoming reality! Alliansloppet has been a precursor and worked hard to offer the greatest visibility and exposure to long-distance skiers in summer. The promotion of cross-country skiing is very important for a sport that has for too long been confined to a seasonal sport. We warmly welcome to Trollhättan skiers from all levels, from the very beginners to the Vasaloppet winners, for a great and fun edition of Alliansloppet 2019!, says Magnus Larsson Alliansloppet CEO.
