I have had some ups and downs in the Tour de Ski this year.
I had to believe there is a good day ahead of me. It is great
to win and to beat Martin. He has been very strong the whole
year and it is a great victory for me. I maybe started little
bit too hard and around the halfway of the race it was difficult
for me. But in the end I knew I could win and I just gave
everything I had.

It is relieving to be back on the podium. I am happy about
the 2nd place. I felt much better than in Oberstdorf. I knew
Finn would be strong. The most important thing for me was
to keep Petter and Ustiugov behind me. I have again a good
gap but I dont take anything for granted.
It was my goal for the day to be on the podium. It was a good
fight today. I had a very good first lap. Coaches told me
I was in the fight for the podium and I was pushing as much
as I could. Unfortunately I am far from the overall Tour de
Ski podium but I am still fighting.
