Women’s 10km classic – Preview

Last season’s distance champion, Kerttu Niskanen (FIN), eyes a historic back-to-back win in the crystal globe, a feat unseen since Therese Johaug in 2018/2019 – 2019/2020. Niskanen, who secured the 2022/2023 globe with just two wins, showcases prowess in the 10km classic style, seeking to triumph on home snow, emulating Krista Pärmäkoski’s 2018 victory. Meanwhile, Jessie Diggins (USA) aims for her maiden Finnish victory, having claimed 15 World Cup wins across seven nations, with none in classic style. Keep an eye on contenders Astrid Øyre Slind (NOR), Heidi Weng (NOR), Frida Karlsson (SWE), and Ebba Andersson (SWE). Karlsson and Andersson, though podium stars seek redemption in the distance standings. 

Men’s 10km classic – Preview

Pål Golberg (NOR), last season’s distance crystal globe victor, enters the race with a 104-point lead over Johannes Høsflot Klæbo (NOR). Golberg’s strategic eight podiums, including three wins, surpassed Klæbo’s impressive ten podiums and nine victories. At 32 years, Golberg secured his globe, ranking as the second-oldest male winner after Pietro Piller Cottrer (ITA). Norway’s dominance is evident with 17 consecutive wins, spearheaded by Klæbo’s triumph in last season’s 10km classic style.
