„I was lucky to have a good race and a good result. I was just hoping to fight for a podium position. I was a little bit surprised that me and Didrik were fighting for the win.“
Sjur Roethe and Didrik Toenseth battled through many of the splits of today's 15 km F at the World Cup in Lillehammer. Roethe pushed his strong performance over the last stretch of the course and ended up on the top of the podium, 6.0 seconds before Toenseth. Young Russian Denis Spitsov took the last spot on the podium on the challenging tracks of Lillehammer.
