Saturday, Norwegian Eldar Roenning celebrated the 6th World Cup victory of his career and his first podium of the season winning the 15 km Classical.
“I' m very happy with my victory. It has very tough race. I had a great feeling since the morning. In Otepää , you have to have excellent skis and I had them today. I felt fast today but Martin (Johnsurd Sundby) started before me and was pushing very hard. I did not know if Maxim started before or after me. I found out when I came to finish. It has great feeling to win.”

“I am happy with my third place. I did not have a good season’s start. I did not perform well in Kuusamo. I was also a little sick but in Otepää I made a successful come back and I am happy to be on the podium. I look forward to Oslo. I would like to beat some Norwegian guys in sprint at Holmenkollen”.
