The Road To Victory At Vasaloppet

The first time Daniel Tynell started at Vasaloppet was in 2001, racing without confidence and disappointed after a 105th place in the Swedish Championships the day before. 

The placement was so bad for him that he didn’t even get to start Sunday’s pursuit at Swedish Champs. At Vasaloppet, Tynell finished third, a few centimeters behind the winner Henrik Eriksson and Staffan Larsson in second place. 

The following year Daniel Tynell won Vasaloppet, then won the 90km race again in 2006 and 2009.
