Competitive Highlights

Knute is a member of the Yukon Elite Squad, a high performance Nordic ski racing team out of Whitehorse, Yukon. Knute has been quickly climbing to the top of the North American ski scene having had podium finishes at Canadian Nationals as well as US Super Tours. Knute has been U23 National champion for the past two years in a row and still has another year as an under 23 skier. Last year, 2013, Knute notched the best Canadian U23 male result at World U23 Championships (21st) in Val di Fiemme, Italy. He trains year-round, over 600 hours a year and competes in races across the globe.

In 2012 Knute made the Junior National Team out of high school and skied for 2 years on the Pierre Harvey National Training Centre. Then, he started training on the self made team “Yukon Elite Squad”, with five other elite Yukon Skiers. He finished on the podium in 16 out of the 17 races I did on the Canada Cup circuit. I represented Canada at the World Junior Championships in Erzurum, Turkey and finished off the season as National Champion. These are his words: “I love training and racing, but mostly I love training and racing in Yukon”

How EPO-Boost and TriFuel work for me (User since September, 2011)

During long hard training sessions and races you need that extra boost of energy to push yourself to the limit. Afterwards, you need it again to recover. EPO-Boost and TriFuel™ give me that extra “Boost” – Knute Johnsgaard
