Kerttu Niskanen (FIN) won the 10km classic race in Lenzerheide (SUI), which was day 2 of the brutal stage race.

After the Tour der Ski opening sprint races in Lenzerheide yesterday, day 2 of the brutal six-stage race featured individual start classic races for both men and women. 

In grueling conditions with heavy snow and sleet throughout the race, the 33-year-old Finnish veteran basically parked her competitors, winning the 10-kilometer classic race by nearly 20 seconds. 

“Today was really good. I felt good today and my skis were working really well, and I usually enjoy being at altitude,” Niskanen says after her killer performance. 

Andersson enters the race for the overall 
Although Ebba Andersson was beat by nearly 20 seconds, the 24-year-old Swede was no less content than the winner. 

Andersson’s strong second-place finish in the 10-kilometer puts her in the mix of contenders for the overall Tour de Ski victory. 

While happy to be on the podium, the 23-year-old Swede, who has been struggling to find her groove so far this season, was more excited about her body’s response to racing than points and positions. 

“It finally feels like my body is responding the way I would like. For me, the overall goal for Tour de Ski is to find back to that good vibe that I’ve been missing this season. And today I feel like I am a lot closer to where I want to be,” says Andersson, adding that there are bigger goals than Tour de Ski this season. 

“I will try to pull out my absolute top performances when it really matters.”

Top 3, 10km Classic, individual start women
1. Kerttu Niskanen, Finland, 27:04.0
2. Ebba Andersson, Sweden, 27:22.2
3. Natalia Nepryaeva, Russia, 27:34.5

Diggins loses overall lead
Jessie Diggins (USA), who won the opening stage of Tour de Ski yesterday, had a nightmare of a race today.

Despite pouring every ounce of energy onto the course, Diggins finished in 16th place, one minute and seven seconds behind Niskanen. Diggins, the defending Tour de Ski champion, thereby lost her overall lead to Niskanen. 

Four stages to go
Tour de Ski now moves on to Oberstdorf, Germany, for Tour de Ski stage 3 and 4 on December 31 and January 1.  Stage 3 features a 10-kilometer mass start skate race for women and 15-kilometer mass start skate race for men. Stage 4 features classic sprint races for both men and women.
