At the Finnlandia Hiihto in Lahti (FIN) over 50 kilometre in classic style Valentina Shevchenko (UKR, Fischer skis and poles), Tatjana Mannima (EST, FIscher) and Stephanie Santer (ITA, Fischer skis, boots and poles) claimed three-fold victory with Fischer. On the mens side Florian Kostner (ITA, Fischer) missed the podium just about the margin of 0.4 seconds.
Valentina Shevchenko after her victory at the transjurasienne once more was unbeatable today. Her plan was simple and worked out: "I had perfect skis and I had only one tactic: just go as fast as possible." Thanks to her third place today Stephanie Santer took over the lead in the overall ranking of the FIS Marathon Cup.
