He believes that Thobias Fredriksson and Bjorn Lind have the best chances of reaching the podium on Saturday.
– They are looking sharp!
The Sprint race in Bern is skating and only 600-meters long right in the center of town.
– It’s going to be narrow, tight and with sharp corners, just like the Formula 1 Grand Prix race car event in Monaco. It’s going to be very important to get a good start for those who advance from the prolog, says Peken.
Fredrik Bystrom is new on the Swedish team.
– Fredrik skied well in Bruksvallerna recently and is a big talent. It’s a big performance if he makes the top 16.
The Swedish team travels to Switzerland on Friday. The individual race is on Saturday and the team sprint on Sunday. Sweden will have three men’s team and one women’s team in the relay.
