The Viessmann FIS World Cup Cross-Country 2006/2007 came to an end in Sweden last week. At the Royal Sprint – held for the fourth time in front of the Royal Palace in Stockholm (SWE) – Petra Majdic (SLO) and 21-year-old Mickael Devjatiarov (RUS) took the top spots. For Devjatiarov jun., the son of the 1988 Olympic Champion, it was his career-first World Cup win. In the winter’s last individual races on Saturday in Falun, Marit Bjoergen (NOR) finished the season like she started it — with a victory. She won the pursuit in the finish sprint ahead of Katerina Neumannova (CZE) who claimed the 48th World Cup podium in her 143rd and final World Cup start. 18-year-old Therese Johaug (NOR), the surprise bronze medalist in the 30km race in Sapporo, set the pace for much of the race and was rewarded with her first World Cup podium place. In the men’s final race, Tobias Angerer (GER) celebrated his 10th World Cup victory. The relay victories on Sunday went to Germany (ladies) and Norway (men).
