Mathias Kyburz (Switzerland) and Tove Alexandersson (Sweden) won the first World Cup race of the 2015 season – a sprint race in Tasmania dominated by Swiss and Swedish runners.

In the men’s class Kyburz won ahead of Daniel Hubmann (also Switzerland) with Gustav Bergman (Sweden) in third. Both Kyburz and Hubmann are sprint specialists with international top results from championships from earlier, whereas Bergman did his best World Cup sprint result ever with his third place today.

In the women’s class last years World Cup winner Tove Alexandersson won ahead of the domination runner in the championships – Judith Wyder (Switzerland). Sara Lüscher (Switzerland) finished 3rd – making the podiums completely Swiss/Swedish. Switzerland and Sweden are also the only European countries fully focusing on this World Cup round and sending a full team.

The area used for the race was a quite flat university area – giving some left/right route choice challenges, but all in all the race favourited the fast runners. Still it was possible to do mistakes, and the race was described as challenging by some of the athletes.

– Even though my race wasn’t clean, I got a nice 2nd place in a challenging race around the buildings of Launceston University, Daniel Hubmann commented after the race.
