On the last day of the Autumn performance tests in Oberhof Katrin Zeller and Andi Katz powered to victory in the roller ski competitions in free technique. 

Exciting ladies' competition

Katrin Zeller showed again a very good pre-season shape. After the second place in Friday's free technique sprint the skier from Oberstdorf skied to victory in rye 11.2 km roller ski competition. Youngster Sandra Ringwald finished +9.5 back and took second place. Denise Herrmann lost on the winner +43 seconds and finished in 3rd. 

Katz before Göring

In the men's 19.6 km competition a small group went away and it was Andi Katz who was able to profit most from the escape. Since the second lap he was alone with Hannes Dotzler and at the end skied for another victory in two days. On Saturday Katz already dominated the trail running competition and sent a clear nomination message to Germany's head coach Frank Ullrich. Franz Göring took second place only +3.6 sec behind Katz. Sebastian Eisenlauer completed the podium in third place.
