Toenseth was an outstanding skier already at the junior level, winning the gold medal in the relay at the junior World Championships in 2010. Toenseth had his international breakthrough at the senior level with a World Cup victory in the 4x7.5km relay in La Clusaz (FRA) in January 2013. He was selected for the 2013 World Championships in Val di Fiemme, but got injured and couldn't race. Then he was selected for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, but got sick and couldn't race. Needless to say, Toenseth is eager to qualify for the 2015 FIS World Championships in Falun.
