Birkebeinerrennet, Cross-country skiing |  Andreas Nygaard won the Birkebeiner race

For the third year in a row, Andreas Nygaard won the Birkebeinerrennet.

This was his fourth triumph. The first victory came in 2018-

Nygaard was part of a group of six men who left the rest of the field.

Towards the end, only two men were fighting for the victory. Nygaard won with a time of 2.23.55.

Johan Hoel had to settle for second place after being beaten in the sprint. Max Novak from Sweden took third place.

In the women’s class, Magni Smedås was the strongest. She reached the finish line alone and won Birken for the first time in 2.47.09.

For a while, Emilie Fleten looked like she could make history with seven Ski Classics victories in one season, but she had to drop out in the final phase.

The Birkebeinerrennen was supposed to have been held on Saturday, but already before the weekend the race was moved due to bad weather.
