Now also the Fossavatnsgangan 2016 is concluding. Almost 800 racers competed in this year`s edition in various distances fighting against unusually difficult weather conditions. Hence a number of racers left the 50 km race and started in shorter distances. Therefore those who did finish can be even more proud of how tough they are.
In the men`s mainrace two Swedes took places 1. and 2. and a Norwegian the third. Markus Ottosson won with a time of 02:24:29. 40 seconds later Marcus Johansson crossed the finish-line. Andreas Sauge from Norway five minutes later climbed on the podium. 
The ladies competition was far not that close: Justyna Kowalczyk, the polish super-star who already took the victory in the 25 km competition, won the race with more than 25 minutes in advance. Second place goes to Norway, Kari Vikhagen Gjeitnes. Elsa Guðrún Jónsdóttir from Iceland jumped as third onto the podium. 
Detailed information following soon and tomorrow 20:00 CET it is time for Worldloppet-TV, the last one for this season.
