Where I come from has always meant a lot to me. Nastola provides excellent opportunities for sports, and the location is excellent. I am happy to show where I’m from. I appreciate my roots.
For a couple of years now, I’ve been thinking about a sports event of my own. My own way of life is athletic, and I am a big fan of sports. The event was chosen to be an off-road duathlon, and I definitely wanted it to take place in my home town, Nastola. The aim is to create a nice event with a relaxed atmosphere – not forgetting a decent competitive spirit. It would be great if formula one fans and people from Finland and abroad came to see where I’m from. Sports is such a great thing that I hope that this race, too, will encourage people to exercise more. The race will be a family event.
