The time, 33 minutes and 11 seconds, however, was far from her record from last year of 31.18.4.

- This year there were other conditions with wet asphalt. It does quite a lot when you go up here, says Johaug to NTB.

Individual start

The competition was the first for the Norwegian ski elite after the corona virus put an end to the end of the season in March.

For infection reasons, it was an individual start in this year's Lysebotn Opp.

Heidi Weng was second and Helene Marie Fossesholm third.
