The team you now know as Team Coop originally started out as Team Skinstad, where the brothers Mårten and Petter Soleng Skinstad worked together to reach their goals and inspire others along the way. Based in Lillehammer and with a family cabin along the Birkebeiner track in Sjusjøen, the brothers have grown up skiing in and outside of Norway. While the youngest brother Mårten is relatively new to long distance skiing, his older brother Petter has already traveled around the world with his ski bag. Now the brothers have joined forces with Coop, who have been involved in sports and cross country skiing a long time, both in Visma Ski Classics and in the World Cup. Supported by Coop and other sponsors, and together with some of their best friends, the brothers are now looking forward to being a part of Visma Ski Classics. With them on their journey they have their father, Åge, a former World Cup skier and later the head of cross country skiing in the Norwegian Ski Federation. The team also has two Spanish skiers in their ranks, Imanol Rojo and Marta Cester, both of them two of Spain`s best skiers. Imanol Rojo has been a part of the Spanish team in several World Championships and Olympic Games and placed 40th in the 50 k in Seefeld. He will focus mostly on World Cup this season, but will join the team late in the season.
