Olympic gold medalist Walter Wallberg had a wish to start in Ruka next weekend, but now it has been decided that this will not be the case.

- I could certainly drive in Ruka because I have pretty good strength and mobility in my hand, but it's not worth taking the risk, says Wallberg in a press release.

The plan is to get a few more training sessions in the legs before the second World Cup sub-competition which will be decided in Idre Fjäll the weekend after Ruka.

- That's right.

I save myself for a week, but Idre will be gone, says Wallberg to SVT Sport.

And there is no doubt about it?

- No, Idre I'll drive, it's probably if a doctor comes and complains, but right now the plan is for me to drive then.
