ALIAKSEI IVANOU AND VALENTINA SHEVCHENKO CLAIM VICTORY AT LA TRANSJURASIENNE
Valentina Shevchenko (UKR, Fischer skis and poles) and Aliaksei Ivanou (BLR, Fischer skis, boots and poles) won La Transjurasienne today.
Valentina Shevchenko was the fastest woman over 54 kilometre in free technique and took the victory ahead of her brand mates Stephanie Santer (ITA, Fischer skis, boots and poles) and Tatjana Mannima (EST, Fischer). Thanks to her second place today Stephanie Santer took over the lead in the overall ranking of the FIS Marathon Cups.
On the mens side over 76 kilometres Aliaksei Ivanou was unbeatable and was obviously happy at the finish: "It was a very hard race. I have won La Transjurassienne already one time, but then, it was
not as hard ass today. I am really happy, that I had enough power left for the finish sprint and that I could win again."
