No surprises in Worldcup

Different terrain but same winners in the World Cup in Norway today. In the womens class, it was once again 'Simone Niggli-Show'. Straight from the start she took the lead. And with amazing speed she overclassed her opponents. After 1/3th of the race she already caught up Heli Jukola with two minutes. Jukola was able to run at the same speed, wich resulted in a second place. Third spot was for the Russian Julia Novikova closely followed by Emma Engstrand.

Thierry Gueorgiou at World Cup 2006 -

The mens class was a different story. The whole race was a close fight between Novikov and Gueorgiou. On the second radio control, Novikov had a 30 seconds lead on Gueorgiou. But in the end it was once again Gueorgiou who won. Mats Haldin proved one more time his very good shape this season with a second place. Vice worldchampion Marc Lauenstein, became third.

The Belgian proud Fabien Pasquasy did not make his best race, but still finished on a respectable 41st place. With John Are Myhren on the 42th place, Belgium was again best in the Benelux. The other Belgians run a close race in the B-final. In the slipstream of Torben Wendler, Van gasse was the fastest of them with a 8th place. Joost Talloen was 9th and Christophe Bernard 13th, all finishing in nearly the same minute.
