The third and final day of the Norweigan opening races Beitostølen, Norway  — during which the conditions hovered around freezin — saw Simen Hegstad Krüger win the 15-kilometer freestyle in 30:16.4. Martin Løwstrøm Nyenget of Norway placed second (+3.7), and Hans Christer Holund was third (+8.7). 

Martin Johnsrud Sundby, having a rough reentry to the racing season, did not finish the race.

The U.S. Ski Team, recently arrived in Norway, used the Beitostølen races as a tune up before starting the World Cup season next week in Ruka, Finland. 

David Norris (APU) was the top ranked American in 34th (+1.27.5). Scott Patterson (USST) placed 48th (+1:57.6), Simi Hamilton (USST) 51st (+2:02.8), and Kyle Bratrud (SMS T2) 60th (+2:21.2).
