Marit Bjrgen and Stig Roar Kveen won the 24 kilometer long rollerski race from Stren to Budal for the third year in a row. Both set course records.
Krister Trondsen was leading up to the 4-k mark, while Rune Muller took the lead after that. Kveen had lost a wheel right before the 4-k point, but quickly got a new ski. He then passed Frode Estil and Trondsen before he chased down Muller and passed him at the last feed station.
Marit Bjrgen was in class by herself in the women’s race and won by about 2 minutes to Kine Beate BjrnÃ¥s.
