After yesterday's 15 km classic, Anders Byström praised Leo Johansson and Eric Rosjö for their success.

Today, the youngsters continue to impress him.

- I said that it was fantastic fun yesterday, and today it is proof that this is not a one-time event.

That Leo Johansson wins and Jonas Eriksson second is really really fun again, says Byström.

Both the double winner Leo Johansson and today's second Jonas Eriksson belong to Sweden's B national team - Team Swedish games.

Today, both were better than all the national team skiers - something Jonas Eriksson was not late to point out before.

- It's fun, it should be so.

We have missed that competition in Sweden, the idea that "we should be better than the A national team", that's how you want it.

That's good, this is just the beginning, I think, says national team manager Anders Byström.

The squad to Ruka

The national team manager will within the next few days take the squad to the World Cup competitions in Ruka next weekend.

He has been in talks with the men's coaches who have their say.

Now he will talk to the riders about how they feel.

- It is always difficult because there are as many as you want to be able to participate with, we only have six places in each race, says Byström.

The national team manager does not want to reveal any names yet.

But there is much to suggest that this weekend's double winner will be one of the riders who will be part of the squad.

- Yes, of course, if you win two races here, it takes a lot to not be selected, he says.
