Team Haglöfs Silva was founded in 2010 and is one of the world's leading adventure racing teams today. Their biggest success to date is the second place in the World Championships in 2011 and the two third placements in 2010 and 2012.
The team consists of team captain Björn Rydvall, Josefina Wikberg, Aaron Prince, Mattias Nyström and Robert Lindberg. Since they were kids they have skied, paddled, cycled and above all, competed. Over time they found a sport that contained everything they liked, and that's where they also found each other. Each one with their own unique characteristics and experiences, and together they form one of the strongest and best adventure racing teams in the world.
