Swedish cross country skiers start their season on Friday in Bruksvallarna with a three-day event.
Swedish top skiers gather to their season opening event in Bruksvallarna on Friday as the three-day Bruksvallarsloppet opens their season.
The competition starts on Friday afternoon with 10/15 km classic style intermediate races. On Saturday it's time for classic style sprints and the weekend ends on Sunday with 10/15 km freestyle intermediate races.
Our number one pick for the weekend is the ladies' first race on Friday when the world class duo of Frida Karlsson
go head-to-head in the 10 km (c). The duo will have a rematch on Sunday in the freestyle race. Charlotte Kalla
is out of the Bruksvallarsloppet due to her covid-19 symptoms.
Andersson secured her place in the FIS World Cup
top level last season as she finished third in the overall distance cup and visited the podium total of six times during the season.
Karlsson made her mark last season in Holmenkollen
. The young Swede beat the local hero and cross country queen Therese Johaug
in the legendary 30 km race.
In Saturday's sprint event we will witness some world class action as the top two sprinters of last season Linn Svahn
go against each other. Sweden's top level female sprinter list doesn't end there. In Bruksvallarna the previous duo will be challenged by the following top skiers: Maja Dahlqvist
, Moa Lundgren
, Emma Ribom
, Johanna Haggström
, Linn Sömskar
, Hanna Falk
and Anna Dyvik
The men's races feature Sweden's top names Calle Halfvarsson
(sprint & 15 km (f)), Jens Burman
(15 km (c) & (f)) ja ikinuori Daniel Rickardsson
(15 km (c) & (f)).
