The upcoming Saturday should be quite busy for Norwegian World Cup skiers Anders Aukland and Odd-Bjorn Hjelmeset. They will be competing in both the Norwegian cross country running championship and in a rollerski race.
The day will start in Gjovik with the Markensrennet rollerski race. Many top skiers will be on the starting line, but Aukland and Hjelmeset should fight for the victory.
Recovery and warm-down following the race will be slim to none. The two iron men will immediately following the rollerski race jump into a car and drive directly to Lillehammer and the Birkebeineren Olympic ski stadium where they will race in the Norwegian cross country running championship. The top runners and most of Norway’s elite cross country skiers will be on the starting line.
