Venla 2018: Stora Tuna on top!

stora

Stora Tuna wins the 2018 Venla relay ahead of Göteborg Majorna and MS Parma after a very strong last leg by Tove Alexandersson. Alexandersson was nearly 5 minutes faster than her competitors on the last leg – catching 3 minutes on the leaders already halfways and from there only speeding away.

The tricky terrain gave some of the teams trouble – most notably Pojantähti who was in the lead halfways through the last leg but made a huge mistake towards the end of the last leg, in the finishing in 12th place, 12(!) minutes behind Stora Tuna.

Development Leg 1

Kristiansand took a clear lead after the first leg with Marianne Andersen running an excellent leg for the Norwegian team. Alfta ÖSA’s Galina Vinogradovaand MS Parma’s Anastasia Rudnaya were within 33 seconds of Andersen, but from there it was a gap of over a minute to the rest of the field. Some top teams in trouble – notably Pan Kristianstad

Development Leg 2

On the second leg Kristiansand disappeared nearly immediately, and some additional teams managed to catch up MS Parma and Alfta ÖSA. Halfway’s throught the leg Lithuanian IGTISA was in the lead with Sandra Pauzaite – but towards the end MS Parma’s Tiia Istolahti prooved to be strongest and opened a small gap to Alfta ÖSA. OL Norska in 6th and Stora Tuna in 8th are both within 1:40 – so is Pojantähti in 7th.

Leg 3

OL Norska’s Simone Niggli ran a great 3rd leg – taking the Swiss team from a 6th place all the way to the lead with a very strong run. Pojantähti’s Marika Teini also did a great race, running 11 seconds faster than Niggli and returning to the finish only 2 seconds behind Niggli. MS Parma managed to nearly keep up with the two teams in the lead, finishing 27 seconds behind in third. From there it was a gap of nearly 2 minutes down to IGTISA in 3rd.

Development Leg 4

Pohjantähti took the initiative at the start of the last leg, while Stora Tuna’s Tove Alexandersson had 3 minutes to pick on the leading teams. Already after around 3 kilometer the fast Swede is up in the lead and starts to open a gap to the other teams. From there on it was all about Alexandersson in the lead – but behind there was a tight battle for second place. A HUGE mistake by Pohjantähti paved the way for Göteborg Majorna in 2nd place and MS Parma in 3rd place.
