Story of Torsten
- 05 August 1971
Torsten loves the outdoors and dogs, especially the Nordic nature. Dogsledding came just with that kind of lifestyle. On top of all that he likes the challenges coming along with this sport.
“You're a lot of times in the hands of mother nature and depending on your four-legged buddies”.
His goals for the future are to keep his dogs healthy and get a little better every year.
“As a musher you never stop learning. Most of all have fun and do a good job with our dogs”.
Now his daughter, Ida, also started racing and they run the kennel and go to races together. Their goals are to continue and hopefully expand their race kennel in Alaska.

Jill was born as a single puppy, and did her first Finnmark 1000 in 2013, after that she was the leader of Torsten’s team in 6 yukon quest 1000 miles and all other races he did. In addition to that she finished 4 Iditarods with some of my Torsten’s friends. She was never dropped from a race. “This dog would go through hell and back for me. Probably my once in a lifetime leader”.
