Kikkan Randall (USA, Fischer) and Alexey Petukhov (RUS, Fischer skis and boots) - two names which were candidates for today's victory after their performance in the last races. Natalia Matveeva (RUS, Fischer), Maiken Caspersen Falla (NOR, Fischer) and Emil Jönsson (SWE, Fischer) secured podium results, too.
Randall controlled the race
After Marit Bjoergen (NOR, Fischer skis and boots) missed the final by a hair's breadth it was Kikkans chance to celebrate another victory. The American controlled the race from start to finish, attacked at the last uphill und opened a huge gap to the others. "I saved some extra power for the final and that was my key for success", Kikkan Randall said.

Natalia Matveeva came in second ahead of Maiken Caspersen Falla. Bjoergen finished seventh ahead of Justyna Kowalczyk (POL, Fischer skis and boots), Chandra Crawford (CAN, Fischer skis and boots) und Astrid Jacobsen (NOR, Fischer skis and boots).

Petukhov won with a few meter's gap
Same situation in men's final: Alexey Petukhov secured victory a few metres ahead of his opponents. Emil Jönsson came in third in his first race this season. "It was a great victory here. I had good ski's and the crowd was amazing. I was glad that Petter was also in the final and that we could have a competition against each other", said Petukhov.

Devon Kershaw (CAN, Fischer) finished fourth ahead of Petter Northug (NOR, Fischer). Dario Cologna (SUI, Fischer) missed the final in his home stadium by a hair's breadth and came in seventh. Alex Harvey (CAN, Fischer) finished ninth.
