In a tight and competitive field, Sami Jauhojaervi of Finland won today’s classic 50K mass start in Trondheim, followed by German Tobias Angerer in second and Canadian Alex Harvey in third.
Coming off of a World Championship 50K win in Liberec, Norwegian Petter Northug also skied well taking 5th.
Taking the last podium spot, this is Harvey’s best World Cup race to date with only 6.32 points. With much success at U23’s and the NorAm Cup, Alex’s best result before today was a 5th place in the team sprint in Liberec. The Canadian skied an extremely consistent race holding the top five with Angerer and Russian Maxim Vyleghanin for almost the entire race.
Many North American congratulations to Alex!
