Cross-Country star takes second place in Skiathlon World Cup
A breathtaking display of Cross-Country skiing saw Andrew Musgrave land a career-best second place finish at the Trondheim 10km Classic + 10km Free Skiathlon World Cup this afternoon.
With four top-10 finishes already in the bag this season, Musgrave’s fine early season form was rewarded in astonishing style as he delivered a brilliant performance with a finishing time of 43:51.4, just 0.7s behind Norway’s Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo in first.
Speaking after the podium presentations, Andrew said:
“Today was a super good day. With the World Championships in Trondheim next year, this was a test event, so getting on the podium here was super good. I also live in Trondheim, so this was a bit of a home race for me, so it was a good place to get my podium. I feel in good shape, it’s still early in the season and I feel like I’ve still got plenty of good races to come. Now I’ve really got to try and get a victory under my belt; I need to try and catch up with Dave Ryding!”
Jostein Vinjerui, Cross-Country Team Manager, added:
“This has been an amazing day for us. Andrew’s really showed his level this season as one of the best skiers in the world! For the whole of our team, something like this is a very important result.”
