After a long and succesful snocross career, Iisko Näkkäläjärvi (Arctic Cat) from Inari, Finland has decided to retire from snocross racing. Last year he took still silver in Finnish Championships to complement a long list medals he has won since 1997. Näkkäläjärvi raced for seventeen seasons.

“I have been living for Snocross racing only for the past ten years but now it is time for new things in my life,” he said.

“I am so happy that I got to experience the golden years of Snocross in Finland and Sweden. I will never forget the atmosphere of racing in competitions like the Malå World Championships in 2010, Iisko says.”

Thanks for all the great years, Iisko, and good luck to your future!



  1. Another notable (used to be cat racer for a few seasons) coming back is none other than the “Flyin Finn” Toni Haikonen himself for the Finnish series.

  2. Hi HeatherBlisters are something that you need to find your own soouitln to as people suffer for a variety of reason although it very often poorly fitting shoes and/or socks. You can a very expensive pair of shoes but if they are too big/small or wrong in the style ie supportive, cushioning, flats, etc then you will still suffer. You need to get advice from a good shop and be prepared to spend some time in there trying on shoes and take advice from the staff. Running Bear in Alderley Edge and Sweatshop in Hyde are owned and staffed by good runners who know their stuff. Both shops will allow you to try the shoes before splashing the cash. I have also suffered thru rubbish socks in the past (I can’t wear 1000m socks for eg). It really is trial and error to some degree but I think your first stop in one of those shops and go for a chat and take your existing shoes with you, they paint a picture of your run style.Do come out soon though, it would be good to meet you. See you soon.Chris

  3. Hi Heather I’m also a beginner so don’t worry about not being able to keep up. I went to my first sioessn this Tues (poss big mistake at it was a speedwork sioessn, I was straight in at the deep end!) Anyway, am hoping to go again for a normal’ run next week and am also worried about keeping up. I’m just going to plod in the same general direction as everyone else and hope to join them at the end! I’ve only just started running, managed a very slow 10k last month and just want to keep it up to improve my health. I’d be happy to run with you I’ll def be slower than everyone else so don’t worry. Look forward to meeting you, I’ll be there next Tues. Wendy [url=]ghfhbnlhzv[/url] [link=]unaufqvvrts[/link]
