Peterson, first win this season!

Riders in this news :  Nikita KRIUKOV  ; Teodor PETERSON

Last year's overall Sprint World Cup champion Teodor Peterson (Rossignol) wins the Sprint of Liberec ahead of – and after a photo finish – his Swedish teammate Emil Joensson and Paal Golberg from Norway. It’s the first World Cup win of the season for Teodor Peterson after his second place in Quebec. At the moment, he stands at the second place of the Sprint Cup standing ahead of another member of Team Rossignol, Nikita Krioukov.

Teodor Petersson (SWE) :It feels great to be the first non-Norwegian on the podium. I have had some good competitions this winter but no victory. I will try to keep the winning momentum for the rest of the season. It was very close with Emil. I felt strong today but I did not see Emil coming from behind. Last four meters were important for the victory.”
