Karolina Hedenström, Lager 157 Ski Team, finished in third place.
“It was a very good practice before the winter. We (Ida, Tove, and I) took turns skiing and letting each other go to tire Karro,” says Hanna Lodin to Langd.se.
How does it feel to be able to beat such strong opponents?
“There is a difference between skis and roller skis. Ida, Tove, and I have trained together on snow, and I know they are sharper. But it’s nice to beat them, and I hope I can hang on to them until the winter, says Lodin humbly.
