I am very satisfied with my race today, it was one of
my best classical relay part. I am as well happy about the
victory, a relay win is always something special.

I was confident that Petter can take the win today. With Petter
at the end we have always a very strong guy. My personal race
was not the fastest leg time but it was okay, I can be satisfied
with my performance.
I'm very happy today. I was believing in our team. I knew
we were strong. It was a tough fight in the finishing straight
but Petter Northug is in a great shape and he was better.
I'm leaving Nove Mesto very satisfied with two podium results.
I'm very happy, Relay is always tough with a tight finish.
Petter is so experienced and strong and he delivers strong
performance when it is needed. I will go home an watch the
replay of this weekend's competitions, especially the mass
start. It was my first victory in the mass start.
