Delphine Claudel (FRA) reached her first World Cup success today on Cermis, in Val di Fiemme. Second place for the Norwegian Heidi Weng and third for the American Sophia Laukli. Claudel was satisfied “This is the first victory in my career, it was a great day and I am so happy”.
Up in Cermis the Swedish hymn has been resonating: “Du gamla du fria” for Frida Karlsson, cheered by everyone. Kerttu Niskanen (FIN) is second on Tour de Ski podium, followed by Tiril Udnes Weng (NOR).
Rain and snow for men’s race. Ready, set, go. The Norwegian team with Kruger, Roethe and Holund strengthens to protect the leader Klaebo. Kruger reached first place, followed by his compatriot Holund and the French Jules Lapierre, for a surprising third place. Audience welcomed the new Tour winner Klaebo loudly. His was a Final Climb perfectly managed until the end. “I couldn’t be any happier or more satisfied. I cannot wait to be home, then coming back to Livigno for the World Cup. Then it’s time to prepare for the World Championships”.
For a sweet end, snow has started falling down on Alpe Cermis, to salute the heroes of the hardest and most exciting race ever. In addition, Marcialonga OC can be happy too for the upcoming big event (January 29th).
