One thing gives the Finnish star hope after the Russian holding maktdemonstrasjon

COGNE (Dagbladet): It was a clean maktdemonstrasjon of Aleksandr Bolsjunov when he won the generalprøven on the 15 km classic in Cogne on Sunday.

A seiersmargin of almost 44 seconds to the reigning world champion at the distance, Iivo Niskanen, was almost incredible.

Is he 44 seconds ahead of Niskanen? Boy! Yes. I don't know what to say. He goes fast, " says Hans Christer Holund to the Newspaper.

Hugely far up the

Holund was the second best Norwegian on a åttendeplass, but was almost a half minute behind the Bolsjunov in goal.

Are you Norway's largest langrennsekspert? 20 000 in the pot

- It is far up, yes, states Holund dry, and get help from teammate and Norwegian world cup-runner at the distance, Didrik Tønseth, to put an adjective in front of it.

- It is tremendously far up. It is klasseforskjell, but when he is in form he is completely impossible to do. We know, says Tønseth, who was almost two minutes behind the Bolsjunov in goal.

- it Is possible to pinch into almost two minutes on one and a half week?

- Well, it is the several kilometres almost. No, it is like we have seen often in the weekends before, there are big differences when people are in insane shape. It's been a week again, and we have had a little different recharge in here.

don't Know who's going to beat him

the main Character himself, Aleksandr Bolsjunov, was satisfied with the win generalprøven, and the time difference down to Niskanen makes him confident that also the world cup-the gold is within reach now.

"New Johaug" went all-in in the debut

- I don't know, he answers in English, and turn out with his arms when Dagbladet asks about who can beat him at the distance of Seefeld.

Then there comes a small smile before the explanation comes in Russian.

Some will certainly be to try to beat me, but I'll try to be even better there. We'll see.

Pointing at Emil Iversen

The reigning world champion, Iivo Niskanen, however, is not as safe as Bolsjunov that the Russian is unbeatable in the world cup.

Consolation he finds in Martin Johnsrud sundby's time and it happened ahead of the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Lahti in 2017.

- the Margins are so small on the men's side. I am lost for sundby's time in Otepää before the Lahti world CHAMPIONSHIP, so I actually have the same feeling now as then. We must do a better job in Seefeld with the skis and smørningen, " says Niskanen of the Newspaper.

- you Will say that you are the favorite as the reigning world champion on this distance?

- It is Bolsjunov who is the favorite, of course. But Emil is strong also, and we don't know how his fitness is now. He's going to be strong in Seefeld, " says the finn, and the drag suddenly the fresh norgesmesteren, Emil Iversen, into your favourite.

- Iversen said after the NM in Meråker that he hardly scared you with the 15-kilometer there?

I was sjanseløs to hang on to him in Lahti, so we'll see what happens the next few days. I hope I'll find the way back to the top of the podium, for it is not so fun to stand at the side of the winner, " says Niskanen.
