Our site: “I felt it was just gas on,” says Jenny Rissveds for Sunday’s world cup victory in the U23 category at the cross-country in Pietermaritzburg in South Africa. Alexandra Engen came fifth in the senior class.

It was a success start for the Swedish mountainbikedamerna in Sunday’s World Cup premiere.

The Swedes clearly thrived in the 30-degree heat in the South African Pitermaritzburg.

20-year-old Jenny Rissveds took the lead right from the start in its course, and released since no past.
“I like this course. It is tough and has a lot of technical areas. There is no time to rest, and I felt it was just gas.

Sunday’s victory – with 36 seconds down to second Perrine Clauzel was Jenny Rissveds fourth in the World Cup here. But the three have previously been in the sprint discipline.

– Now it was the cross-country which is OS-branch and therefore it felt great, “says Jenny.

Also, Alexandra Engen went out hard in the heat and took the lead from the start.

“But then you have to run a bit tactically and don’t go too hard, so I dropped on the fly and was actually down in 13th place for a while.

During the final lap there were forces behind and Alexandra picked competitor after competitor.

– Suddenly I saw that I had the chance to take a fifth place and take me up on the podium. Then it was just to give everything there was. I am great happy with this release.

Won the senior class made schweiziskan Jolanda Neff.

The men’s World Cup premiere was won by Frenchman Julien Absalon. Best Swede was Emil Lindgren in 17th place, 4.26 minutes behind the winner. Matthias Wade finished in 40th place.

And while the crosscountry-cyclists ran warm in South Africa did the Swedish marathoncyklisterna great results in France. Emmy Thelberg became seven and Angelica edvardsson eight in the women’s class. And the Swedish marathonmastaren Calle Friberg finished eight in the opening race in the Marathon World Series.
