Who we are
Changes to the crew organizing ÅEC
The crew behind Åre Extreme Challenge (ÅEC) regroups for the 2020 competition. Scott Cole has stepped down, to focus on his family life, his own business in environmental economics and the priorities that follow with it. Henrik Weile and Martin Rask stays on with the addition of two Anders. All four guys live in the small village of Duved, just outside Åre.
