Ragnar Bragvin Andresen took second place while Tord Asle Gjerdalen finished third. “He [Northug] is very smart and fights his way to places you would not believe. Suddenly he got 20 meters and it was impossible to take him again,” Bragvin Andresen commented on Northug’s performance in a langrenn.com interview.
Charlotte Kalla pleased local fans as she stormed for victory on the ladies’ side ahead of Ida Ingemarsdotter and surprise of the day, youngster Maja Dahlquist.
