Lassi Raami has done the Tour De Pirkka twice. On the years 2014 and 2017 he had already been involved with Pirkka Cycling, Rowing and Jogging, but after the army Lassi hasn´t skied at all. On those years Pirkka Ski Race was cancelled and Tour De Pirkka was done without it.
Last autumn Lassi won a free participation to this years Tour and was nearly forced to ski again. With equipments borrowed from his father, with two months practising and that famous “Sisu” as we Finns call it, Lassi made it with the total time 11:05:06.
