Ruka at early season is pure magic. In Finland they have this thing called "ruska" - autumn foliage when the leaves turn to various shades - and as the resort opens ruska is still on. It's a rare sight! What isn't a rare site is seeing Team QKLS aka Finnish national team blasting the park at Ruka as they're all stylish mofos! Riding from Rene Rinnekangas, Emmi Parkkisenniemi, Mikko Rehberg, Kalle Järvilehto, Carola Niemelä, Emppu Väisänen, Joonas Bergman, Aleksi Nevakivi and Henna Ikola.
