Some days before the race date, the OC had shortened KLL at 42 km (with 2 laps of 21kms) due to the lack of snow.
But heavy rain fell on the day before and all the night and forced the OC to cancel skating race (cf photo).
Fortunately, the weather became colder and the Classic had been organized(with a enormous work of volunteers and organisation).
-3° at start, and snowfall during all the day,the conditions were not perfect specialy on the second lap (there were no more tracks),but it’s the race and whim of nature.
The winner is J Ahrlin from Sweden in 1h51 and Serena Boner from Switzerland for women in 1h58.
