The main goal for final VISMA SkiClassics race was to have all athletes on points, and it succeeded. Even with reserve. All six skiers from Team PIONEER Investments finshed the final contest series Ski Classics in the first forty. Barbora Jezeršek then among women ranked at FIFA place in 67km race Ylläs-Levi in Finland, what is her season´s best. "She went absolutely perfectly. It's a great finish of the season and she is also the one whom I would like today to highlight from our team," said after the race Lukas Bauer - team director.
Among the men then confirmed the role of leader Ilya Chernousov, who finished eighth, when he was just one sekond from the sekond place. "So from him it's also super result. Likewise, Alexis went well and fulfill my wish to finish in the top twenty," said Bauer.
Alexis Jeannerod was 20th, Jan Srail 34th, 37th Lukas Bauer and Adam Fellner finished 40th. "Adam went very well, long held in a group with Jan Srailem and he dropped out from the group just around two kilometers before the finish. My race was little bit different, easy to say that it wasn´t my day and I´ve felt that after such long season I´m out of the energy, then it was hard fight for me today. So I am glad that I have no race next week "Bauer described.
Finland had been azure weather, the sun was shining, beautiful weather. "The morning was minus 10 degrees, gradually warmer. Some our athletes had really good skis, then we have to thank a lot to our service team, who did good job again," said Bauer.
Now it is the season of Ski Classics at the end. Tomorrow we will travel home and on Thursday we have meeting with journalists in Prague, which will evaluate the full-year performance of the Team PIONEER Investments.
