meet Our sustainable athletes.
We love endurance sports, nature, challenges and adventures. But most importantly: we are convinced that it’s fully possible to combine sustainability with an active lifestyle.
Our goal is to spread the knowledge that an active lifestyle can be achieved without interfering with mother nature. Through inspiring and meeting other people in their everyday lives.
Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something.
We take responsibility for our actions, we race for earth ‘s sake and we are the ambassadors of the Sustainable Racing Team.

Henrik M Lindgren
Henrik ”Henke” has always loved to push his limits whatever has appeared in his life. He is a real all-round racer with a lot of skills and has got experience from working in extreme and stressed situations. He loves all endurance sports especially those in the wilderness. Besides being an athlete he works as a creative director in sustainable communication.
Annie Thorén is despite her young age one of Sweden´s most established triathletes. She has been crowded Swedish Champion eight times and placed 4th at the Triathlon World Championships in 2016. But Annie isn´t only doing triathlon, she is also a good cross-country skiier, a combination that helped her to beat the Women´s record in the 'En Svensk Klassiker' last year. Training and racing is her life and since 2015 she´s a full time athlete: The best job in the world!
mountainbike and alpine ski touring
Erik loves everything about mountain bikes. Preferably, he gets as high up as possible on a mountain and then rides as fast as possible back down. In terms of competition, he’s been riding a bunch of races in the Swedish Enduro Series and some longer races such as Cykelvasan90. He is a passionate trail builder and is one of the driving forces in Falu Stigcyklisters development of bike trails in Falun. In the winter he likes to go backcountry skiing and snowboarding.
Long-distance trail running, mountainbiking AND skateboarding
Martin Carlsson is an environmental specialist with a great passion for spending time in the nature. In 2010 he completed his first ultra-marathon while living in Wales. Running 50km on the Welsh mountain trails during a full day really took running to a new level. Since then he has been running ultra-marathons in Transylvania, around Mount Blanc, across Madeira and several other local ones with distances up to 115km. Setting up a goal to run an ultra-marathon, and looking forward to the time on the trails, really gets him motivated to do all of the everyday training which sometimes means getting out late in the evening, after kids have gone to bed, for a hill-interval session.
The time to go skateboarding, he finds during lunch. Luckily he works really close to a skatepark, so there are great opportunities for a skateboarding lunch-break with colleagues. A fantastic way to re-energise at work!
fitness and skiing
Helen is coming from a wide sporting background. Handball and running has always been a part of her life before she became a fitness instructor. She loves to challenge herself at various races. She works as a project leader besides being a fitness instructor.
ROAD AND MOUNTAIN BIKING
Daniel has been practicing many different sports, such as rock climbing, kayaking and road biking. Nowadays he’s focusing on road biking and mountain biking, for the fun and to keep a good level of exercise. He works as an sales man for outdoor equipment targeting photographers and film makers in southern Sweden, and his goal is to combine the career with a healthy lifestyle, while having fun!
