Here is the preview, start list, and times for the women's sprint race at the Drammen World Cup in Norway.

Drammen World Cup – Women’s Sprint Classic – Preview

On March 14, 2023, the Women’s Sprint Classic Style in Drammen will showcase some of the world’s best cross-country skiers. 

Maja Dahlqvist currently leads the World Cup sprint standings this season with 615 points, just nine points ahead of Nadine Fähndrich at 606. While Dahlqvist has not won a sprint event this World Cup season, she has finished on the podium five times with four second-place finishes and one third-place finish.

Interestingly, no female cross-country skier has recorded more than four second-place finishes in sprint events in a single season without claiming at least one win. Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen claimed four-second places without a win in women’s World Cup sprint events in 2007/08. Only Maiken Caspersen Falla has finished runner-up in more than four women’s sprint events in a single World Cup season than Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen (4 in 2007/08) and Dahlqvist (4 in 2022/23).

Dahlqvist has yet to win a World Cup sprint event since winning five in a row between February and December 2021, which adds to the excitement of this upcoming event. 

Other contenders include Johanna Hagström and Tiril Udnes Weng, who are still searching for their first-ever World Cup sprint win.

This sprint event follows just two days after the inaugural edition of the women’s 50km freestyle mass start, the third-longest women’s individual World Cup event ever held. In the last nine women’s World Cup sprint events in the classic style, nine different women have won. The run started with Linn Svahn winning in Falun in January 2021.

There have been four different winners in this season’s women’s classic-style sprint events in the World Cup: Emma Ribom, Nadine Fähndrich, Lotta Udnes Weng, and Kristine Stavås Skistad. Only in 2009/10 have more winners in a single World Cup season in women’s classic style sprint events.

Jonna Sundling won the women’s sprint in the classic style at the World Championships in Planica on February 23. Sundling finished on the podium in six of her last seven sprint participation in the World Cup, including four wins, except for a seventh place in Les Rousses on January 28, 2023.

Sundling is one short of equalling Linn Svahn (7) for the second-most World Cup sprint wins among Swedish women, only behind Stina Nilsson (18). Kristine Stavås Skistad won the most recent women’s World Cup sprint in the classic style in Les Rousses on January 28, and this was her first World Cup podium finish. Stavås Skistad can become the first woman to win back-to-back World Cup sprint events in the classic style since Linn Svahn won three in a row in November 2020-January 2021.

It’s worth noting that the last Norwegian woman to win back-to-back World Cup sprint events in the classic style was Maiken Caspersen Falla in January-November 2019 (3 in a row).

Emma Ribom won the classic sprint in Ruka on November 25. Linn Svahn (3, 2020/21) and Stina Nilsson (2, in 2016/17 and 2017/18) are the Swedish women to win multiple sprint classic-style events in a single World Cup season. Nadine Fähndrich won the most sprint events in the women’s World Cup this season with three wins.

In conclusion, the Women’s Sprint Classic Style in Drammen on March 14, 2023, promises to be an exciting event, with several talented cross-country skiers competing for the top spot. 

Maja Dahlqvist, the current World Cup sprint standings leader, is yet to win a sprint event this season, but she has finished on the podium five times. With strong contenders like Jonna Sundling and Kristine Stavås Skistad, who both have had recent podium finishes, and Nadine Fähndrich, who has won the most sprint events this season, the competition is sure to be tough.
