15k Win For Svartedal

FasterSkierFebruary 5, 2006

Sprint specialist Jens Arne Svartedal of Norway managed to out-race the distance skiers in today's 15k classic competition in Davos, Switzerland. It was the second time this season that a Norwegian sprinter managed to win a classic distance race – the first being Tor Arne Hetland's victory at the beginning of the season in November.

Second to Svartedal today was the young Austrian Martin Tauber, his first-ever podium finish. Some may remember Tauber as the man who ambitiously led the first several kilometers of the World Championship pursuit last year before fading back into the pack, but today he managed to stay strong the whole way to edge third-place finisher Vincent Vittoz of France by 3 seconds.
