Before Petter Northug redefined the finishing kick, there was Thomas Alsgaard, arguably one of the greatest racer closers of all time. As the anchor of the Norwegian 4x10km relay team, Alsgaard regularly led the team to the top of the podium with his seemingly effortless domination of the homestretch. And as the mass start format became more prevalent, Alsgaard brought his prowess to those individual races as well.
In conjunction with our recent interview with Alsgaard FasterSkier and Madshus bring you the “Champion Moments” Photo Contest. Submit your best photo featuring an Alsgaard-esque race moment.
It does not have to be at the finish line, but it should be representative of Alsgaard’s race changing ability. Please include a clear description, as it will factor into the final judging.
The winner will receive a pair of Madshus 100UHM poles, with smaller prizes for second and third!
