Great Rottefella-performances this weekend05.03.12
Whether you're interested in the final races of the Nordic World Cup, the biathlon world championships og Nordic ski classics, it was almost impossible to miss the amount of Rottefella bindings on the podiums this weekend. From Mora to Lahti to Ruhpolding, the Xcelerator proved to be almost unbeatable.
In the biathlon, French Martin Fourcade won two gold medals, while Swedish Carl Johan Bergman won one bronze and one silver medal. In the women's' classification, German Magdalena Neuner won convincingly on Saturday, and finished second in Sunday's pursuit.
The Nordic World Cup is closing in on the season finale, and in the men's classification, Swiss Dario Cologna looks set for a comfortable season win. In Saturday's race over 30 km, he won by a large margin. In the women's classification, Norwegian Marit Bjørgen tightened the grip on the total victory, with a second place on Saturday and a convincing win in Sunday's sprint. Her closest rival, Justyna Kowalczyk, also on Rottefella bindings, is in second place, after finishing eight and third this weekend.
For classic nordic enthusiasts, Vasaloppet in Sweden is the season highlight for many. In the 90 km long race, Rottefella racers finished first in both the men's and women's classifications, with record breaking times from both Jørgen Brink from Sweden, who won his third straight year, and Vibeke Skofterud. The latter secured the first Norwegian win in the race since 1981.
We congratulate all the riders who performed amazingly on Rottefella gear this weekend!
