The unusual distance of 15 kilometers in the free style in the Norwegian Beitostölen became the season's first world cup on natural snow. Therese Johaug took off like a furie with his early start number, and outclassed the rest of the field. The Norwegian won with a minute and six seconds.
Behind her, it was just like last weekend, Ebba Andersson, Charlotte Kalla and Ingvild Flugstad Østberg who fought for the two remaining pallplatserna. But this time got Cold revenge.
" I went to a place on the podium quite early in the race, but it was a hack up to the second and third place. But it is about constantly to have the belief that I should stick to my plan and I had to make, said the Cold.
his own skiing style.
" It's probably not the most beautiful, it is a quite heavy before.
Long looked Ebba Andersson out to be second place in his hand, she was second at 12 miles, but it was Cold that had the strongest ending. The trio behind Johaug finished within three seconds of each other, when the Call took 12 seconds and got second place just two tenths ahead of Ostberg.
Thus poked the Cold also down Andersson to the fourth place, the position that the Call itself was so dissatisfied with the in the pursuit in Lillehammer a week ago.
" It was terribly strenuous. You got not much free in the day, " said Andersson to Swedish television, SVT.
säsongsinledningen established itself as one of the toppåkarna. Afterwards she told me that she had lost a lens with five kilometers left.
" It was my last hope to get in it. But it was only to realize that no, it is ruined, " she said to Aftonbladet.
But she didn't know if it affected the outcome.
" Hard to say. I was jättetrött, not just when I went out on the last lap, but on the other half of it. I don't think it has any greater significance, rather, it was I who did not have as much gunpowder left in the body, " she says.
