The Final Climb was very tough. Therese and Astrid were
cheering so much for me so I had gave it all. It is great
that we had three Norwegian girls on the podium. I was stiff
in my legs, I tried to go fast using my arms. I tried to
focus for the final sprint in the home stretch.

I had a good feeling when I started today. I knew Therese
is a strong climber. I skied my own speed. Therese passed
me fast. In the last kilometre I did not lose too much.
It was a strong performance from me. Second place is a great
performance. Im happy about the Tour de Ski and that
I showed all-round skills.
Its a dream come true for me. It is amazing to become
the first Norwegian to win the Tour even better when Astrid
and Heidi could join me on the podium. It was a tough conditions
today, I had to work hard with my legs and arms. I tried
to push all the way and to keep the distance on Astrid.
