Riders in this news :  Astrid Uhrenholdt JACOBSEN  ; Chris Andre JESPERSEN

New podium for Chris Andre Jespersen in the Tour de Ski! The Norwegian ends third of the 10km Classic in Val di Fiemme ahead of his teammates Petter Northug Jr and Martin Sundby. The racer from Rossignol Team is also third of the overall Tour de Ski standing before the last stage, the famous Final Climb of Alpe Cermis!
Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen finishes 2nd of the 5km Classic (+14.9) ahead of her Norway’s teammate Therese Johaug. She is always the current leader of the Tour de Ski Sprint & Overall before the last stage but she knows that it will be difficult to get to the Alpe Cermis in first position.
"I think I wanted the podium more than the other girls. Towards the end I decided I go for it as much as I can. I feel I am in a very good shape and I can compete with almost everybody. I do not think much about the overall result in the Tour de Ski. It’s already a great achievement for me to be in the leading position before the final stage. I am happy that there is a high chance that a Norwegian lady crosses the finish on Alpe Cermis in first place. " (Quote : Fis Ski)
Tomorrow, start at 13:30 for the ladies, 15:00 for the men.
