Kuusamo pursuit

Sadie Bjornsen Rides ‘Patience and Optimism’ to Best-Ever 14th in Ruka Triple

Whatever Sadie Bjornsen was doing the first lap of Sunday's 10 k classic pursuit wasn't working for her, so she revamped and tackled the final three laps with a whole new attitude. "I gave myself a little smacking and realized I had to make my opportunity today," she said after placing 14th in the Ruka Triple for her best overall finish in Kuusamo, Finland.
