There was no successful competition for Ida Dahl in the Vasaloppet after a hassle with the material.

Now the Swede wants revenge when it's time for the Norwegian Birkebeinerrennet.

There is also the superstar Therese Johaug to start.

- The track in Birkebeinern is really hilly and more reminiscent of a "regular" five-mile track in the World Cup than most races in Ski Classics.

This gives the traditional riders a relative advantage compared to other races, says SVT Sports expert Anders Blomquist.

Elvira Öberg is chasing Marte Olsbu Röiseland in the battle for victory in the overall world cup and also big sister Hanna Öberg will be top three in the world cup.

- It is big.

In sports, it is the biggest, it shows who has been the best during the season.

All biathletes go to basically all competitions so it says a lot about who is actually the best.

It has probably never happened that Sweden has had two top three in the overall World Cup, says Björn Ferry.
