Frode Estil and Roger Aa. Djupvik of Norway started in 50-k pace in the recent 15-kilometer in Cogne, but came on very strong as the race progressed. See the two skiers race profiles here.
– I started a little too careful. It irritates me that I wasnt more offensive, says Frode Estil, who came on very strong and finished with a good 6. place.
