Visma, the title partner of Visma Ski Classics – the long distance ski championships, is now presented as the the main partner of the tour’s final race Ylläs-Levi in Northern Finland.
Ylläs-Levi is a new addition along with three other races (Pontresina in Switzerland, Vasaloppet China and Reistadløpet in Norway) to Visma Ski Classics ending the Season VII (2017). This 60 km classic race on Saturday April 8, 2017, starts in Ylläs, one of the most popular cross-country ski resorts in Finland, and ends in the downhill ski resort Levi, which is the number one winter ski destination in the country. Levi is also known for hosting World Cup events in alpine skiing while Ylläs has the best and longest ski courses in Finland.
Visma CEO, Øystein Moan:
“As title partner for Visma Ski Classics since 2015, we are pleased that Ylläs-Levi will be part of the tour. During the last years, Visma has experienced rapid growth in Finland, now with more than 1000 employees serving 50.000 customers.
We feel that we have a lot in common with the long distance ski championship. Cross-country skiing speaks to our Nordic identity, and like Visma, Ski Classics is experiencing strong growth. In addition to being the title partner for Visma Ski Classics, we will enter as main partner to the Ylläs-Levi race. Finland is an important market for Visma, and we look forward to support this event.”
Race Director, Ylläs-Levi, Teemu Virtanen:
“We are honoured to have Visma as the main partner for Ylläs-Levi, which fortifies our brand and the event as a whole since the company is already the title partner of the entire cup. Visma is a great brand to be associated with, and together with them we can make a race that will be remembered for years to come. Not just a race but an event with elegance, quality and a lot of fun.”
Ylläs-Levi opens up for registration 15th of September 2016- early bird rates available until end of September!
