Josefina raced together with former teammate Martina Höök. The original race course covered at least 2700 m of altitude each day and also the highest peak of Sweden, but the strong wind stopped that.

The first day, the racecourse went over Kebnetjokka down on isfallsglaciären and bit behind Tarfala. Martina and Jossa were close together with another female team and arrived to the finish as 2nd team, 1 second behind.

On saturday the wind made the course close to the station but still with via ferrata and rappels. Jossa and Martina had high speed from the beginning and came away from the other team directly at the start and crossed the finish line as winners of Kebnekaise Classic 2013.
