World Cup Finland 2017: Map and Results

Magne Dæhli (Norway) took his first World Cup victory and Tove Alexandersson (Sweden) won the women’s class when the first World Cup round of 2017 was decided in Finland today. The World Cup round was organized as a “tour” consisting of Sprint on Thursday, Middle on Saturday and a Long distance chasing start on Sunday.

Winner in the men’s class, Magne Dæhli, started in 15th place, 3:10 behind leading Martin Regborn. With 3 kilometers to go Dæhli’s 6-man group had still two minutes up to the leading due William Lind and Emil Svensk – but Dæhli yet again proved that he is very strong towards the end of long races. William Lind and Emil Svensk finished 2nd and 3rd, respectively, with Daniel Hubmann in fourth.

In the women’s class Tove Alexandersson started 1:30 behind Danish Maja Alm in third spot. Alexandersson used 7 of 11 km to get up into the lead. Helena Jansson (starting 2nd) and Alm struggled to keep Alexandersson’s speed, but nearly managed to hang on all the way to the finish. In the end Jansson finished in 2nd 27 seconds behind and Alm in third 31 seconds behind.

Middle distance: Regborn and Jansson

Martin Regborn won his first World Cup victory on the Middle distance Saturday – 29 seconds ahead Olav Lundanes (who did not start in the chasing start Sunday) with William Lind in third place. In the women’s class Helena Jansson took the victory ahead of Natalia Gemperle with Lina Strand in third place.

Sprint: Michiels and Alm

Yannick Michiels has been fighting his way towards the top for several years – on Thursday’s Sprint the fast athlete from Belgium took his and Belgium’s first World Cup victory on the Sprint. Michiels won after a tight battle with Matthias Kyburz (Switzerland) – both making nearly no mistakes and keeping the rest of the field at a safe distance. Emil Svensk (Sweden) finished third with Martin Regborn (also Sweden) in 4th and Spanish Antonio Martinez Perez (Spain) in 4th.

In the women’s class Maja Alm won with a 10 second gap to Tove Alexandersson (Sweden) in second with Lina Strand (Sweden) in third 25 seconds behind. This was a great Swedish day with also a fourth place for Sweden with Karolin Ohlsson.
