Mikkonen and Gräfnings FIS Worldloppet Cup wins in Lahti

Juho Mikkonen and Maria Gräfnings took wins in 50 km free technique of Finlandia, which was also a FIS Worldloppet Cup event. Sini Alusniemi was the best Finn in ladies’ race finishing second.

Mikkonen finished two seconds ahead of French Damien Tarantola, who was the best of strong French squas.

– For me this was this season’s first long race, and I was surprised how well I could keep going, said Mikkonen.

He managed to get eventually decisive gap of few meters to his rivals before the last downhill and as a strong sprinter, he knew he had victory in his hands.
