He's getting better and better each season. He finished 21st overall this season. Andrew has high ambitions and he now wants to win his first world cup race. His goals are clear : he wants to bring a World Championship medal home.
What is your favorite training ?
My favourite place to train is at home in Trondheim. We spend so much time travelling to races and training camps throughout the year that it's nice to get back and be on home soil. Trondheim is great for training, there are tons of decent roads for roller-skiing in the summer and the tracks are really good in the winter. It’s definitely worth a visit!
What is your favorite race format ?
My favourite race format is the 50km. It’s long and painful, but it’s also the ultimate test of endurance for a cross country skier.
What is your favorite race place ?
My favourite place to race has to be Oslo. Norwegians are crazy about skiing, so there is always an amazing atmosphere and huge crowds cheering us on. It’s also one of the hardest tracks on the world cup circuit. If you win in Oslo you are definitely a machine!
What is your best memory in your sport ?
I have too many good memories of skiing to pick just one favourite! Some of the best though definitely have to be spending time out in the garden building jumps and playing about in the snow as a kid.
What are your hobbies apart from your sport ?
Outside of cross-country I like to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Fishing & ski touring are a couple of my favourites.
What music do you like to listen to when you're training / preparing for a race ?
I listen to a bit of an eclectic mix of music. You’ll find me listening to everything from Rage Against the Machine to Dizzee Rascal to Beethoven.
