Season premiere in Ruka, Finland.

Longed for if you ask Charlotte Kalla.

- I'm glad that it did not take until mid-January before I was on the World Cup starting line, but that I get to premiere already this November, she says.

Last weekend's competitions in Gällivare became a measure of value for Charlotte Kalla.

- I pick with a good feeling where I went relaxed and distinct.

I bring with me experience and will try to make it even a little better.

I'll give everything in the track in Ruka.

"It's my tune"

Last year's season started later than planned.

From that, Charlotte Kalla learned lessons that she believes can benefit her this season.

- I learned to take day by day and not worry about the future.

This is something I want to continue working on.

It is the best strategy to get to a peak of form and good performance on the way there.

It is my melody that I will continue to work hard for.

It's not easy to be there, but I want to be there.

Kalla has long fronted the Swedish women's length national team.

But lately, Frida Karlsson and Ebba Andersson have naturally taken over the baton.

- It's always fun to beat out the underdog and surprise.
