The 2017 year version of Vasaloppet is still ongoing, but the broadcast of the event has ended for the day. It’s the only time of the year I get stuck in front of tv almost a whole day.
Why? Because it’s amazing to see all nice and friendly people that take part in the race behind the elite. And because of the excitement to see who’s gonna have the strength left to get to the finish line first.
It’s the worlds longest skirace and the worlds biggest race, they say.

Then we waited for the first woman to reach the finish line

So, now when Vasaloppet is over for me, I’m looking forward to Spring arrival.
Many of the skiers still has many hours to go before then come to Mora and the finish line. I admire every one of them making this race i.r.l and not in front of tv as I do.
I also think all volunteers is worth all respect for making this day a great day for so many people. And thank you Swedish tv for broadcasting the event.
Each and every one of you who reads this post probably have a country man or woman in this race. They said 43 countries were represented in the race.
