Bjoergen Breaks Away From Vasaloppet Field

FasterSkierMarch 4, 2006

After a gutsy breakaway at only the 5km mark, Norwegian teammates Marit Bjoergen and Hilde Pedersen skied by themselves at the front for the “last” 40km of today's mass-start 45km classic Vasaloppet race in Sweden. With 10km to go, Bjoergen went ahead of Pedersen and surged to a 1 minute, 22-second win–an impressive comeback result for Bjoergen after finishing well-below expectations in the Olympics. Her winning time was 2 hours, 17 minutes and 53 seconds.
