Astrid Oyre Slind and Tord Asle Gjerdalen won Fiemme Rollerski Cup

On Sunday, 16th September – from Ziano di Fiemme to Alpe Cermis (Italy) – took place the second edition of Fiemme Rollerski Cup, last stage of the FIS Rollerski World Cup, of the Guide World Classic Tour challenge and Mini Rollerski Tour Trentino; this year the race was also open to all amateurs. Gjerdalen won the prestigious elite race ahead of the French Bastien Poirrier and the other Norwegian Joar Thele. In the ladies’ race, the winner was Astrid Oyre Slind, very good to come ahead the Polish Justyna Kowalczyk and Kari Gjeitnes.

In the World Cup race, Evgenj Dementiev (RUS) won ahead Robin Norum and Victor Gustafsson. In the ladies’ race the winner was Alena Prochazkova (SVK) ahead of Julia Angelsioe and Sandra Schuetzova. In the junior races the victory went to two Sweden’s athletes, Johan Ekberg and Moa Hansson.

The 50 km popular long distance race and the 20 km popular short race had a great success too; Simone Varesco and Paola Beri won the 50 km race, while Fabian Kramer and Magdalena Kobieluse won the 20 km short race.
The overall victory of the World Classic Tour went to Astrid Oyre Slind ahead of Kari Gjeitnes (who won the sprint prize), and to Anders Mølmen Høst despite the good race of Gjerdalen today.

As far as the Mini Tour Rollerski Trentino is concerned, the king and queen are the same who won today's race, Evgenj Dementiev and Alena Prochazkova. Alena Prochazkova is also the first in the rollerski World Cup, while the consolation prize for Robin Norum is prestigious; he is the winner of the 2018 World Cup: "Great team work in the first part, we kept Pepene under control but Dementiev was too strong". The best juniors of the season were Moa Hansson and Johan Ekberg, with Sweden scoring the most points in the nations ranking.

France’s Bastien Poirrier surprised everyone today in the long distance race, keeping the lead for long sections of the race before being overtaken in the final. But in the last kilometres there was Chris Andre Jespersen ahead of Gjerdalen; Jespersen stumbled clamorously in the middle of the race but was able to win the sprint for the fourth final place ahead of Morten Eide Pedersen. The comeback of the multiple winner of Marcialonga of Fiemme and Fassa was incredible. He won with an impeccable tactic in Fiemme: "You think you have great strength but the "hill" kills you, great race", said Gjerdalen. Astrid Oyre Slind was no different. "It's always nice to win, the first part was easy, then at the beginning of the uphill Justyna started strong and we pushed hard with the double poling". After four victories in Tour de Ski, (this time) Justyna Kowalczyk takes it positively: "Queen of Cermis? This time no, second, but I'm happy to be back here, time passes but Alpe Cermis is always special to me, too bad for the first part, maybe I would prefer 50 km of uphill! “
